several years ago, I bought an Epson V100 for it was suitable for Linux. At
the time I was running Ubuntu.
Now I tried to use it under Arch Linux and I have some struggles...

I installed those packages from the aur reposit:

here is some output:
>> sane-find-scanner
found USB scanner (vendor=0x04b8 [EPSON], product=0x012d [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.

>> scanimage -L
hdevice `epkowa:usb:002:003' is a Epson (unknown model) flatbed scanner
device `epson:libusb:002:003' is a Epson  flatbed scanner

>> in /etc/sane.d/epkowa.conf and in /etc/sane.d/epson.conf I have:
usb 0x04b8 0x012d
usb /dev/usb/scanner0

>> iscan
Could not send command to scanner.
Check scanner's status.

>> xsane
It proposes me to choose between 2 devices:
Doesn't seem to end into anything.
Opens up xsane, but when trying to preview or scan: "Failed to start
scanner: Invalid argumenth"

Doing all those things with sudo leads to the same results.
I do not know where to look anymore...
Does someone have a hint?
