This scanner will neither work with the snapscan backend nor the epson
backend. Support is _planned_ for the epkowa backend. You have the
use VueScan (http://www.hamrick.com/, Linux version available)
use MacOS X
or if you insist on free software:
get another (Unix/Linux supported) scanner.
FYI, the 4490 is not related to the other EPSON scanners supported by
the snapscan backend and does not speak the ESC/I protocol. The epson
backend only works for scanners that speak ESC/I.
You can find the latest iscan via:
Hope this helps,
