Thank you both for the quick response. I had not seen gutenprint but will try it if the drivers don't work from the command line mostly because the gutenprint doesn't mention scanning.
I'm assuming that PARDUS uses CUPS (Download for Epson ME Office 700FW,Epson Stylus SX600FW,Epson Stylus Office BX600FW/TX600FW,WorkForce 600 for CUPS) As far as the printer goes I can't tell if I need pipslite_1.4.0-5.tar.gz or pipslite_1.4.0-5.dsc or both for the printer driver. The scanner driver is iscan_2.24.0-4.tar.gz or iscan_2.24.0-4.dsc
Based upon the info I found at http://www.file-extensions.org/dsc-file-extension
I think both are needed because the website says "DSC is an Adobe PostScript language commenting convention which permits processing of PS files without the processing programs needing language level knowledge of the PS file's contents"
The AVASYS website is confusing
Trixon, I'm willing to try the code that you put there for me. Let me make sure I understand before I start. I download the file from the site to my download folder. Then I move it to the source directory. Then I enter the code but where do I type the file name? I don't understand where to put the target for the command. I was a wiz at DOS way back in a past life but I haven't learned the linux commands yet.
