Ubuntu – Installing Epson Printer but Interrupted by lsb Dependency Error

aptdriversprintingscannersoftware installation

I am installing the Epson XP-310 driver from this website.

When I attempt to install the downloaded .deb file, I get the following error:

The Package System is broken 

epson-inkjet-printer-201303w:i386: Depends: lsb(>=3.2) but 4.1+Debian11ubuntu is installed

I'm very confused. It says I must have lsb version >=3.2 but I have 4.1.
Why am I getting the dependency error?

I had the same problem with my Epson WF-3520 and the driver from the Epson-Website. This solved my problem:

Try, to make sure the damaged driver will be removed:

sudo apt-get -f install

And then install the driver from the package manager

sudo apt-get install printer-driver-escpr

I installed the package "printer-driver-escpr" version 1.3.0-1 with the package manager and the driver works for me with the Epson WF-3520.

Now, try to install your epson printer.
