[Solved] Installing printer Ecotank - cannot install "LSB"

Hello ,

i tried to install the printerpackage for Debian Stretch on a freshly Devuan Ascii.


There is a problem because it depends on LSB.


lsb : Depends: lsb-desktop (>= 4.1+devuan2) but it is not going to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.



How could i overcome this?


thanks

Either backport the printer package to Devuan ASCII or upgrade to beowulf.

Which package is this, exactly?

Re: [Solved] Installing printer Ecotank - cannot install "LSB"

i did upgrade to beowulf by changing "ascii" to "beowulf" and afterwards "sudo apt-get upgrade" & "sudo apt-get dist-upgrade". It installed a fair share of packages withouth error, but after reboot i was just greeted with grub console.

you can find the driver by inserting "ET-4750" in the search field

See this thread, fsmithred post-
https://dev1galaxy.org/viewtopic.php?id=2676

grub-efi-amd64-signed package is a problem.


You 1st need to find out what partition /boot/grub is on (root partition).  Then you can manually boot from the grub prompt.  Something like this for my system, my root partition is sda3 (gpt3).  If you have a simple install, its probably sda2 (gpt2).

find root partition
grub> ls(hd0,gpt2)/
grub> ls(hd0,gpt3)/
.
.
.
manually boot grub:
grub> set prefix=(hd0,gpt3)/boot/grub
grub> set root=(hd0,gpt3)
grub> insmod normal
grub> normal

If you are able to boot into your system, then do this as per fsmithred:

apt purge grub-efi-amd64-signed
grub-install
update-grub

Then reboot and all should be well.

LSB.  Not sure what package lsb-desktop is, I dont see it.

Devuan Beowulf/Debain has:
lsb-base/testing,now 10.2019051400 all [installed]
lsb-release/testing,now 10.2019051400 all [installed,automatic]

Re: [Solved] Installing printer Ecotank - cannot install "LSB"

Hello , i have purget the Devuan for now. But am going to reinstall. Will this problem /Beowulf grub-efi-amd64-signed
be solved within July hopefully?
On Ubuntu 18.04 the driver is recognized out-of-box withouth need to install any driver. So maybe there is a Kernel-Hardware-support for it that i have overlooked on Ascii.

Re: [Solved] Installing printer Ecotank - cannot install "LSB"

i would either need this package to install driver

epson-inkjet-printer-escpr
(installabe on debian)

or (lsb) > preferable > but it is not installable on devuan ascii, as it seems to conflict with (lsb-desktop)
and then i could install the proper printer driver from epson

Re: [Solved] Installing printer Ecotank - cannot install "LSB"

The installable package is actually named printer-driver-escpr.

Re: [Solved] Installing printer Ecotank - cannot install "LSB"

Thank you, this package is already installed, and it seems the right one. The computer finds a compatible driver for "ET-4550" (previous model of ET-4750).
The printer is now installed.

Still i'd be happy if i could be able to install the "lsb" package, as this would allow me to install the official drivers (also the driver for Fax which seems missing; ).

Re: [Solved] Installing printer Ecotank - cannot install "LSB"

It's not clear to me why you have a problem with installing lsb-desktop. It's a "standard" ascii package and version.
Try doing:

# apt-get update
# apt-get -f install

to ensure you have a workable apt state.

Thereafter a normal ad-hoc installation

# dpkg -i epson-inkjet-printer-escpr.deb
# apt-get -f install

should work fine.

Re: [Solved] Installing printer Ecotank - cannot install "LSB"

I am running Devuan Ascii (just installed some day ago) and i noticed this error before


The following packages have unmet dependencies:
lsb-desktop : Depends: libpng12-0 but it is not installable
               Recommends: libqt3-mt (>= 3:3.3.6) but it is not installable
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.


Until this is not solved, there seems no way to install the epson-driver package from the homepage.

Re: [Solved] Installing printer Ecotank - cannot install "LSB"

The name of the printer driver from Epson is epson-inkjet-printer-escpr2_1.1.1-1lsb3.2_amd64.deb

Re: [Solved] Installing printer Ecotank - cannot install "LSB"

For that particular issue, you might want to temporarily put jessie/main back into the sources list, just to pick up the libpng12-0=1.2.50-2+deb8u3 package, and then restore the sources list again (and update egain).

I don't remember the exact details, but when libpng16 came about, libpng12 got left behind, with the result of needlessly but forcefully deprecating dependent packages. Whatever the case was, the "missing" libpng12 from jessie installs without issues on ascii (and both are merged directly from Debian).

Re: [Solved] Installing printer Ecotank - cannot install "LSB"

Thank you very much, that was really helpful.

Downloaded the libpng12 here
https://packages.debian.org/jessie/amd6 … 0/download

and now lsb package installs, problem solved.
