just to see what your computer does see,

unplug the scanner
plug the scanner in
immediately run:
dmesg -T | tail -n 20

should show what or if the computer is seeing the device. you will
able to tell.

Here is the readout:
dmesg -T | tail -n 20

ok, there is no doubt you computer recognizes the scanner and you say you
have properly installed epson iscan 1.04

Being a little pedantic, I would not say "recognizes". It does indeed
see it and list what it is, but that is a piece of the USB standard:
just a question of reading two numbers on the output and looking them up
in a list of manufacturers. It doesn't say anything about the proper
drivers being loaded or even existing in the system.
