I have an Epson Perfection 1650 Photo which I have been using with iscan. Now 
suddenly iscan doesn't work any more and just give me a dialog box saying 
"Could not send command to scanner". Xsane still works and recognizes my 
scanner without any problems.

My system is a RedHat 9 box with freshrpms updates and the following:

I've also tried iscan 1.4, but get the same result.

My /etc/sane.d/epkowa.conf contains:

usb /dev/usb/scanner0

My /etc/sane.d/epson.conf contains:

usb /dev/usb/scanner0

I have tried to remove one or the other but this doesn't seem to help.
