The following error displayed by epson-printer-utility can be safely ignored. I don't know what is the cause, but is doesn't affect usability: Unable to load library icui18n "Cannot load library icui18n: (icui18n: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory)"

If you get the error Communication daemon down, Error code = -1, you have to start the ecbd service. You can either do that with sudo systemctl enable --now ecbd.service if you want the serice to run at system startup or with sudo systemctl start ecbd.service if you only want to start the service manually each time you use epson-printer-utility

shankar58989, I checked it, it's work without the lib Don't forget execute that "The ecbd.service must be running for Epson Printer Utility to work. Execute 'sudo systemctl enable --now ecbd.service' in a terminal."

Better to write any script for update the link or copy to more stable place.

@lgm Can't you do

# Pre-install:
CURRENT_USER=$(whoami)
## install actions here
# Post-install
sudo -u "$CURRENT_USER" -- systemctl enable --now ecbd.service

to enable that service without manual post-install actions?

@lgm Please fix the URL

@thibaultmol the package does have a post_install/post_upgrade hook already that contains this information
