Thanks Doug,

I tried your suggestion of uncommenting Epson2, but it only added
another driver to the list in the Yast Scanner configuration window
showing that it didn't recognize the scanner.  I then re-commented
Epson2 and uncommented Epson.  Same result.

I looked for epkowa in the list to see if I could uncomment it, but
there is no epkowa listed in /etc/sane.d/dll.conf.   I looked around in
/etc/sane.d and found /etc/sane.d/epkowa.conf

Here is what I found in it:
# For any USB scanner not known to the backend (yet), you may, at your
# own peril(!!), force the backend to recognise and use it via libusb.
# You can do so by the following configuration command:

#   usb <USB vendor ID> <USB product ID>
# SEIKO EPSON's USB vendor ID is '0x04b8' (without quotes).  In order
# to find the USB product ID, use lsusb(1).
# A sample configuration for the Epson Perfection 1650 (Epson GT-8200),
# which has a product ID of 0x0110, would look as follows:
#usb 0x04b8 0x0110

I used lsusb to find this

Bus 001 Device 007: ID 04b8:0130 Seiko Epson Corp. GT-X770 [Perfection

I added this line to the epkowa.conf

usb 0x04b8 0x0130

Now in the Yast Scanner Configuration window, I get 

Driver Scanner
epkowa Epson (unknown model) at epkowa:usb:001:007
Not Configured EPSON Scanner USB scanner (vendor=0x04b8[EPSON],
product=0x0130 [EPSON Scanner]) at libusb:001:007

Then I added this to the dll.conf


I got the same result in the Yast Scanner Configuration window as
