[sane-devel] Epson Perfection V800 error

Hello all,

I've been using an array of V700 scanners for research purposes with no
problems. Since they've been discontinued, we've bought a few V800s to test
and make sure they work with our current system. I saw this message (
which claims that the V800 will work with one addition to the config files.
I've made that change and the new scanners still will not work. "scanimage
-L" recognizes the new scanner (as a GT-X980, as expected), but attempting
a scan fails.

I tried running the following command:
scanimage --device-name=epson2:libusb:001:119 --format=tiff >test.tif

That command works with the V700 scanners, but gives the error "scanimage:
open of device epson2:libusb:001:119 failed: Invalid argument" for the
V800. Is there some part of the command that is necessary for the V800s
that I'm missing? Is some additional plugin like iscan that is also
