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.

  # Most Scanners connected to the parallel port or other proprietary ports
  # 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 and is sane rpm -q sane 
sane-1.0.15-20.1 OK. 

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.
