I can't get my Epson Perfection 1260 Photo working. It worked OK with SuSE 9.0 
but broke when I ungraded to SuSE 9.1. I've now upgraded to SuSE 9.2 and it 
still does not work. Connection is via USB. The EP1260Pis reported as 
'Complete' on the SANE web site. I did an automatic installation with YAST2.

As root or as normal user, I get:

sane-find-scanner reports: found USB Scanner (vendor=0x04b8 [EPSON], 
product=0x011d [EPSON scanner], chip=LM9832/3 at libusb:001:003

scanimage -L reports: No scanners were identified

scanimage -d test -T reports: all tests (17) PASS

scanimage -d plustek -T reports: open of device plustek failed: invalid 
argument [Have I misunderstood the man page?]

/etc/hotplug/usb/sane.usermap contains the single line:
desktopdev 0x0003 0x468 0x11d 0x0000 0x0000 0x00 0x00 0x00 0x00 0x00 0x00  0x0

/etc/ld.so.conf contains /usr/local/lib but does not 
contain /usr/local/lib/sane

/etc/sane.d/dll.conf has plustek uncommented.

/etc/sane.d/epson.conf has:

#SCSI scanner:
scsi EPSON
#USB scanner:

Can anyone help? How do I check to see if there is more than one backend 
installed? I did an upgrade rather than a clean installation so something 
could have been left rather than  uninstalled in the change from 9.0 to9.1.
