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.<br>

<b>supported by the epkowa backend plus non-free interpreter</b><b></b><br>
Hence my attempt with the epkowa backend.<br>
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.<br>
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.<br>

I hadn't gotten any replies so thought I would re-ask.
Thanks in advance.

Unsupported. Doesn't speak ESC/I. Closely related to the GT-9400. It will be
supported by epkowa backeend in future. unsupported

Have you tried the Linux IScan?
Post number #8 at the following thread describes the procedures.

(This is why I purchased a Canon CanoScan 9000F MarkII scanner, having native
Linux Sane support, including working support with the infrared scanning. No
funny closed source stuff, like iscan's proprietary stuff.)
