Hello:

I also use various Epson Perfection Vxxx scanners in openSUSE.
I never used yast to configure the scanners.
You reported that sane-find-scanner found the scanner and
scanimage -L listed it as a working device. In my systems
(from 11.x-13.2) this was enough for the scanners to work.
Does your scanning application (kooka, xsane, sane) see
the scanner?

Could you please send the exact link of the driver you
downloaded? I would like to try it in Leap 42.2 too.

Thanks,

Istvan

Hi Istvan,
thanks for your interest in this problem.

Here is the link that you requested:

http://support.epson.net/linux/en/iscan_c.php?version=1.0.4

Some information to help you understand the issue: I don't kneed 
to use yast to install the scanner, I was using yast to try and figure
out why the scanner wasn't working after installing the iscan bundle
that includes the driver epkowa.

My new computer is a dual boot OS 42.2 and Win7.  The scanner works
with win7, but not with 42.2.  My old computer is set up the same way
as a multiboot 42.2 and win7, and the scanner works on both win7 and
42.2.  The linux software is the same iscan bundle 1.0.4.x64 driver
download.

The issue seems to be USB software in the new motherboard.Please look
at this bug for pertinent information:

https://bugzilla.opensuse.org/show_bug.cgi?id=975866

The scanner isn't recognized by these programs: iscan, Simple Scan,
scanlight, xsane, and Vuescan (I believe Vuescan uses a different
driver than epkowa). It does this using both the usb2 or usb3 ports on
the motherboard of the new computer.

I expect that the current i-scan bundle will allow you to use your
scanner, while it won't allow me to do the same for the reasons I have
explained above.

Mark
