For the record. My scanner Epson Workforve WF-7610 was not recognized by iscan yet xsane recognized it.
sudo -u saned scanimage -L returned device `epson2:net:192.168.1.30' is a Epson PID 08B9 flatbed scanner but it did not work. It used to work flawesly with the same configuration BEFORE upgrading to 17.10. My workaround: a) Commented epson2 and epson in /etc/sane.d/dll.conf . I added epkowa. b) epkowa.conf has the correct net ip. c) I copied epkowa drivers to correct lib folder cp /usr/lib/sane/libsane-epkowa.* /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/sane/ after that sudo -u saned scanimage -L returned device `epkowa:net:192.168.1.30' is a Epson WF-7610/7620 Series flatbed scanner and iscan ran again. -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Desktop Packages, which is subscribed to sane-backends in Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1728012 Title: Many 3rd party scanner drivers are broken by a sane change Status in sane-backends package in Ubuntu: Confirmed Bug description: Many scanners can no more be used since sane has changed something: The 3rd-party plug-in the vendor provides as .deb package will still install. But the scanner is no more recognized. Scanners that are affected are(besides others): - Epson Perfection V10 - Epson Perfection V1000 - Epson WorkForce GT-1500 - Brother MFC-8510DN - Epson Perfection V33 It is to note that the probability that the scanner manufacturers fix things others broke is below 100%.
