Dear all,

Thanks to Robert Ancell's PPA, I could instal libsane 1.0.21 (
) on Ubuntu 10.04.
I also completely removed my libsane-extras and sane-utils packages.
 I confirm my EPSON PM-A820 multifunction's scanner now works again
with libsane 1.0.21 !

It also works if i install sane-utils and/or libsane-extras.

Thank you again Robert, and all people who participated to this discussion.
Hope that libsane 1.0.21 will soon be in the Ubuntu's repository !

Best regards
