I have an Epson V330 Photo, which until now was running on Windows. Now iḿ trying to install the device on my linux laptop but experience some troubles. Well actually no troubles. its just doesnt work :D

I dowloaded the drivers from http://download.ebz.epson.net/dsc/search/01/search/searchModule

like it should be first the iscan-data_1.26.0-1_all.deb file, then the iscan_2.29.3-1~usb0.1.ltdl7_amd64.deb files and in the end the esci-interpreter-perfection-v330_0.2.0-1_amd64.deb file.

installed it via terminal without problems.

Now simplescan and vuescan still didnt recognise the printer.

i tried "sane find scanner" in terminal with the result:

"found USB scanner (vendor=0x04b8 [EPSON], product=0x014a [EPSON Perfection V37/V370]) at libusb:002:003 # Your USB scanner was (probably) detected. It may or may not be supported by # SANE. Try scanimage -L"

Then "scanimage -L" with the result:

"No scanners were identified"

I restarted the Computer after the whole process, still nothing. Deleted all the installed files and did it from the beginning again, no difference.

Has anyone a clue what else i could try?
