My scanner is Epson Perfection V330. Can I use it on Ubuntu 18.04? Currently the system does not recognize the scanner though it is connected.
This is the page where to download the driver: http://download.ebz.epson.net/dsc/search/01/search/searchModule (type: V330 and choose Linux) - once downloaded, extract it, move the resulting folder home, then open up a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and type: iscan-perfection-v330-bundle-1.O.1.x64.deb/install.sh - you will be prompted for your password. Once installed, shutdown the computer, switch on the scanner and reboot. Normally, it will work with Simple Scan.
All I said previously was true for 14.04 - I tried with 18.04 afterwards... and it did not work at all.
Since the driver was already loaded, I started at second step and did exactly what they said. My scanner started immediatly running, without even rebooting.
