Epson wf2510f driver

im trying to setup my printer, which is epson wf2510f so i can do my business paperwork. garuda finds the printer but doesnt find the driver. i have a driver for my ubuntu and mx19 systems but garuda says its not compatible.
ive searched the epson driver/downloads but it doesnt show any linux drivers although thats where i got the 201210 linux driver for my other systems.

any help appreciated

WARNING: 'automake-1.15' is missing on your system.

Name                     : automake
Version                  : 1.16.4-1

cd . && /bin/sh /home/john/Desktop/epson-inkjet-printer-escpr-1.7.17/missing automake-1.15 --gnu Makefile
/home/john/Desktop/epson-inkjet-printer-escpr-1.7.17/missing: line 81: automake-1.15: command not found

You should only need it if you modified 'Makefile.am' or

The 'automake' program is part of the GNU Automake package:

Have you updated your system using terminal "sudo pacman -Syu"
Reininstall base-devel "pacman -S base-devel yay " then "yay -S epson-inkjet-printer-escpr " it builds here fine
