Epson Perfection V200 Scanner

Postby lucky on Thu Mar 05, 2009 11:51 pm

I am running Linuxmint Elyssa (just installed) and have searched the forums for a whole day but am now exhausted. Please forgive me but I need help.

I followed the instructions as outlined at http://uellue.de/blog/single.php?date=119 ( HOWTO: Epson Perfection V200 Photo with Linux) but have run into a road block. As you can see every thing worked except for the last step : udev daemon restart

I have also changed the permissions in ( /etc/udev/rules.d/40-basic-permissions.rules) to 0666 but to no avail.

Also, on boot up I get this message:

udevd (2371): add_to_rules : invalid rule '/etc/udev/rules.d/60_iscan.rules:64
udevd(2371): add_to_rules: invalid ATTRS operation

udevd (2371): add_to_rules : invalid rule '/etc/udev/rules.d/60_iscan.rules:69
udevd(2371): add_to_rules: invalid ATTRS operation

I can run xsane under root as suggested in the forum. I have read and read and read but am at a loss of what to do next as the rest of the suggestions are over my head. Is there a simple solution that I can follow?

I am using FELICIA not Elyssa, sorry for that.

I this features most in Epson's Perfection V200 Photo is a stylish, slim, black and silver work of beauty that will fit comfortably on your desktop and is designed for ease of operation. Once you've plugged in the power, loaded the driver and software and attached the USB lead, then you're ready to go, using either the four control buttons or the Epson Scan software.
