I hope you did "SANE_USB_WORKAROUND=1 yast"
No, I didn't.  But I had a good excuse, I was out mowing the lawn.
 I
will do it now ...................Okay, I did it, and also
SANE_USB_WORKAROUND=1 yast2  

It didn't work to get the scanner going.

:(

I don't have the original posting anymore - if this is a 'normall' PC
you
might have some luck using a (USB2-only) add-on card.  I did have
those
scanner issues before (https://bugzilla.opensuse.org/show_bug.cgi?id=
975866),
and it was the USB3 (specifically, the xhci driver) causing the
trouble.

(The bugreport might be worth having a look at because of Johannes
Meixners
extensive explanations)

A few days ago I tried moving the cable to the USB hub that forks to
the printer and the scanner to the USB2 port.  No help.

Often it doesn't matter which port you connect to, it depended on the driver
that handles the port (on my laptop all ports are handled by xhci)...

Good idea about the bug report, I will take a look at it.

If you're in for a read also look at the (longer) one that mine is marked a
duplicate of.

And one more thing, see if VueScan works (https://www.hamrick.com/). It's
payware, but there is a free demo, and ISTR that that one did work with my
Epson when sane had issues with it...
