I final have the scanner working but I need to ask a couple of questions.
SuSe is using udev and I found the usb and its info in /sys/ XXXX.
I got it working by disabling epkowa in the dll.conf file and enabling epson.
sane-find-scanner & Scanimage -L reported:
linux:/home/finemanruss # sane-find-scanner
# No SCSI scanners found. If you expected something different, make sure
# you have loaded a SCSI driver for your SCSI adapter.
found USB scanner (vendor=0x04b8 [EPSON], product=0x0813 [USB2.0 MFP]) at
# Your USB scanner was (probably) detected. It may or may not be supported
# SANE. Try scanimage -L and read the backend's manpage.
# Not checking for parallel port scanners.

# can't be detected by this program.
linux:/home/finemanruss # scanimage -L
device `epson:libusb:001:002' is a Epson Unknown model flatbed scanner
I added the correct vendor ID: 0x04b8 and product ID: 0x0813 to
libsane.usermap but it still reports Unknown model.
I don't care if Iscan works, should I use iscan-free instead of iscan
18.104.22.168-4.1 and is sane rpm -q sane
Should I get sane 1.0.16 Also what do i need to do to make this a unknown
The scanner does scan with xsane and koola.
Again thanks for all your help. I will try to help with the project as soon as
I learn more.
