I have been searching all the forums and can't get this figured out...I have a Epson 2450 Photo hooked-up via Firewire... running Cassandra. I installed Xsane and it seems to see the Epson (calls it a GT 9700... a japanese model) but it gives me a fail message when I try to scan. I also have a quickcam stx communicate via USB that is detected, but I don't select it.
I found some similar problems listed on the ubuntu forum but the resolution didn't make any sense... I can't get it to show me anything if I run sane-find-scanner other than the Quickcam so I can't make use of the resolution on Ubuntu:

I thought I could make use of Avasys for a2450 driver but that actually made Xsane not even able to detect whatsoever. Not sure if Avasys drivers are needed but they are rpm so I used alien (via this forum) but it didn't help me... so I installed both and reinstalled Xsane... have the same problems again.
These things drive me crazy... trying to convince wife that Linux is the way to go but she gets tired of me spending all my time at the computer tinkering...
Not that windows is better... Dr. Watson keeps crashing my XP randomly.
