Review of Linux Compatibility

The Epson WorkForce WF-3640DTWF is a color All-in-One printer. The device is fully supported by Linux.

If the printer is not recognized by the printer drivers of the Linux distribution, the necessary drivers for scanner and printer can be found at the Epson homepage. It is necessary to search for the device “WF-3640″ in the Linux driver search engine.

The scanner of AiO device can be accessed by the program iscan, which is provided by Epson. This software is a simple scanner frontend, which only supports Epson scanners. Alternatively, (and the preferred method) one can use the scanner with SANE, which also fully supports the device. This way, the scanner can be used with the XSane frontend or directly from within Gimp.

A step-by-step tutorial for the installation of the Linux drivers of the WF-3640 under Ubuntu 14.04 can be found at TutorialForLinux.com.
