The supported devices link you provided is for "sane-backends-1.0.16".
I'm on 1.0.23, so I was believing the following was true now.
Perfection 4180 PHOTO USB 0x04b8/0x0118 Unsupported
*supported by the epkowa backend plus non-free interpreter***
Hence my attempt with the epkowa backend.
Part of my attempts to get this working were to install the Epson iscan
package. I assumed that was the non-free interpreter mentioned above.
The debug output I listed in the post I included the link to was from
running iscan. I was hoping that might give someone on this mailing
list an idea of what was wrong.
I have seen posts on various boards that people have gotten this scanner
to work with SANE. And I am (or have tried) doing what they mention
they did. So far, the only difference in environments I can figure out
is that those folks are on 32 bit Linux and I'm running 64 bit. Not
sure that is the problem though.
