You are missing a package but I will detail the whole process to help other users.

Search for the Epson Driver site for Perfection V600 Linux drivers:

Download the relevant packages from both links:

iscan-data_1.24.0-2_all.deb

iscan_2.29.2-1~usb0.1.ltdl7_amd64.deb

iscan-plugin-gt-x820_2.2.0-1_amd64.deb

Notes:

  • For Ubuntu 8.04 and lower download ltdl3 instead of ltdl7
  • For 32-bit Ubuntu users download i386 instead of amd64

Install the packages as per the order above by double-clicking on the package to open it with the Ubuntu Software Centre. Alternatively use dpkg -i <deb> from the terminal for each package.

Connect and power on the scanner.

Open Dash and search for Image Scan! for Linux

It sometimes can take a while for the software to open, so be patient, and eventually it should find your scanner and you are ready to scan.
