I'm a newbie and was trying to make my scanner cx5600 work. I followed this tutorial How do I get an Epson Stylus DX4450 - All-In-One Printer/Scanner working?

The system recognizes the scanner using the command sane-find-scanner but when i try to use simple scan or Image scan! the "all in one" is automatically turned off as soon as the app recognizes it.

Simple scan shows two instances of the same scanner epson (unknown model). Image scan! shows it duplicated as well before turning off the machine:

  • Epson (unknown model) [epkowa:usb:003:008] Epson (unknown model)

  • [epkowa:interpreter:003:008]

I appreaciate your help.
