Epson EcoTank ET-3850 - Setup Help

I just switched to Manjaro from Kubuntu. Kubuntu simply found the network printer and worked. I am not having the same success with Manjaro. When I use the “Add New Printer” tool, it lists the printer as a “Discovered Network Printer”, but when I click on it, nothing happens. “Next” and “Finish” buttons stay grey, and the “Address” stays blank. I have entered the IP address, then I was able to click next. But I can’t find any drivers that work.

I have found Linux drivers on the Epson website for .deb or .rpm, but am not sure how I would use them. Or exactly which one to choose if I did…


The website also says:

In order to install these drivers, you need to install LSB package (version 3.2 or later) beforehand.

Ubuntu: # apt install lsb
Fedora: # yum install lsb
openSUSE: # yast --install lsb

Any insight or direction is greatly appreciated.

The driver is available from the AUR. :arrow_down:

pamac build epson-inkjet-printer-escpr2

ROCKSTAR! Well that was fast and now working! Thanks for the help!!!

Sorry for the noobi-ness…
