I've just tried a fresh install of Epson's drivers, deleting and
reinstalling libsane-epkowa*, recreating the symlinks, all the process
in Comment #96. This procedure worked for me on 17.10, but not on
18.04. What am I missing?

Many 3rd party scanner drivers are broken by a sane change
Status in sane-backends package in Ubuntu:
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%.
