Yes, that's right. I try'd that way AFTER Yast won't work for me :) . I
thought I deleted the self-compiled sane. But now I found at/usr/local/etc
another dll.conf an another Epson.conf. Now I deleted that stuff und
Installed sane 1.0.18 from your link.
Inmy Epson.conf theres only an entry "scsi EPSON", in dll.conf only "Epson".
Sane-find-scanner found the scanner, scanimage -L listet the scanner. All as
User root. Scanimae > /tmp/out.pnm worked also. But than with scanimage -L
theres no scanner until I only open the Epson.conf and save it. Than
scanimage -L is listing the scanner. But only 1 try, then open Epson.conf,
save it.....

As normal User scanimage -L don't list the scanner, /dev/sg1 has full

Can you give me a hint?
