I'm surprised you didn't find:


although I admit it's a little bit hidden in the forest of model
names.  Use your browser's find!

  Stylus CX4300/CX4400/CX4450/CX5500/CX5600/DX4400/DX4450

The Epson Stylus CX5500 is supported as of iscan-2.9.0.

We haven't tested on OpenSuse 10.3, IIRC, but I believe 10.2 was okay.

Hope this helps,
