I am using an Asrock dual sata motherboard with AMD939 64 processor and
sataII drive. I have installed PClinuxos minime0.93a a Mandriva based system
on to a clean partion. I have also installed an Epson r220 usb printer
which works really well.
The Distro uses
kernel is 126.96.36.199.tex1.lve for i686
kde version 3.5.3
I am unable to get the scanner to work.
It has worked before with Xandros3.0.2 and does with the simplymepis6
livecd. So I know that the cables etc are ok.
When booted with the scanner on
sane-find-scanner results in
found USB scanner (vendor=0x04b8 [EPSON], product=0x0112 [EPSON Scanner]) at
# Your USB scanner was (probably) detected. It may or may not be supported
# SANE. Try scanimage -L and read the backend's manpage.
No scanners were identified. If you were expecting something different,
check that the scanner is plugged in, turned on and detected by the
sane-find-scanner tool (if appropriate). Please read the documentation
which came with this software (README, FAQ, manpages).
this is both as root and as normal user.
I have tried specifying the usb vendor and device in the epson.conf and
epkowa.conf files in /etc/sane.d
I have also modified /etc/udev/rules.d/70-libsane.rules
as suggested for Iscan at
but this doesnt work.

If I switch the scanner off and on I then get
# scanimage -L
device `epkowa:libusb:004:005' is a Epson Perfection 2450 flatbed scanner
# scanimage >image.pnm
scanimage: no SANE devices found
Whatever I try I cant seem to get to see the device. I would be grateful for
any help to resolve this.
