I thought I should report back on the solution, since the instructions on the
epson website are confusing.
It appears now that the only thing needed is to add a new line: epkowa to
dll.conf, and to uncomment epson. I now get a choice between the two drivers.
It is not necessary to use the symbolic link.
Sorry for the confusion.
I downloaded the Epson Image Scan program (version 1.0.8-2 ) and converted the
rpm to a deb. I am running Sarge through the Libranet Distribution. Using
Sane version 1.0.10-1.
Following various instructions, I added epkowa to the dll.conf file and
commented out everything else including 'epson'. I tried iscan but it did not
work, however xsane and xscanimage worked perfectly.
Then I issued the following command after cd'ing to /usr/lib/sane :
ln -sf libksane-epkowa.so.1 libsane-epson.so.1.
Now iscan works perfectly and comes up in Xtns in gimp1.2, but xsane and
xscanimage no longer work = segmentation fault.
I don't suppose I need those programs, but it would be nice to have them as a
Yours posts of October 10-13 in the sane-devel list do not provide an answer
to this problem.
Can you help?
