Try without a space between the v and 330, that is v330.

That's missing the esci-interpreter-v330 package, as Yuri pointed out in
an earlier follow up.

Does it really say 'epkoma' and 'v-330'?  The correct backend name is
'epkowa' (w instead of m) and the interpreter has a 'v330' (neither
hyphen nor space).

Here at AVASYS CORPORATION, we are not aware of any.

FTR, AVASYS CORPORATION does the development and testing of Image Scan!
for Linux (the iscan and interpreter packages) that are distributed via
EPSON's download site.

Hope this helps,
