The Perfection 3490 is supported by the snapscan backend. The epkowa
backend supports it if, and only if, you install a plug-in.

I had access to such a scanner when adding support for it to the
epkowa backend. And IIRC the 3490 needs to have the document centered
horizontally. I don't remember if it also needs to be centered
vertically, but I doubt it.
