My Epson Perfection 2400 Photo usb-scanner doesn't work in 12.04. The scanner is recognized, but in snapscan.conf, the backend eswf41.bin gave me an error. I have tried to start the scanner with epkowa.conf, but that did not work. What else can I try?
I had the same problem, but with a CX4200, I hope the solution is the same. The fail is for the backend that sane uses: Epson2, you have to use "epson"
I use XSane, I don't know if other
You'll have something like this:
If you exec xsane You'll have an error: No device, and if you exec
You'll have an error while I/O on the device
You have to exec
It worked to me (^_^) Note that 002 and 006 can be different on you computer, and it will change at the port you connect the scanner.
I hope someone tell us how to force epson insted epson2 by default in sane
