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: 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: 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: 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: Installing printer Ecotank - cannot install "LSB"

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

Re: 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: 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.
