There is a kernel/sane bug which breaks many USB scanners. Make
sure
you have at least version 1.0.25 of SANE installed.
I installed sane-backends version 1.0.27 from Sauerland OBS
repository,
but the scanner still isn't recognized in yast Scanner
configuration
window.

Driver Scanner
epkowa Epson (unknown model) at epkowah:usb001:004
Not Configured EPSON Scanner USB scanner (vendor=0x04b8
[EPSON],
product=0x0130
[EPSON Scanner]) at libusb:001:004

I checked out the site for the manual. Yes, it's USB only. I think
you said
it works in Windows. Have you tried to install WINE in your Linux,
and
then install the Windows software on WINE. Maybe that'll work.

Thanks for the tip about using the windows driver in Wine. I'll give it
a shot this weekend.  I am on a business trip at the moment and won't
get a chance to work on the computer at home again for a couple of 
days.
