Hi Guys
My name is tatty head and I am a complete newbie on linux.I have an Epson stylus SX130 all in one printer/copier scanner.I have no problem printing in my linux distro which is ubuntu 12.4 but i cant scan and any programme I have tried for cartridge amounts left wont work.If I run my epson disc which IS windows based in WINE would they work????

No. Windows hardware drivers will not work in Wine.
