just thought I'd share this fix with anyone who needs to get an Epson scanner working, (Mint 9 and i.i.r.c. also on Mint 7).
I do a lot of film photography and consequent scanning of negatives and slides, so I really needed to get my scanner up and running on Mint 9 now that I have dumped XP. Unfortunately though my V200 scanner isn't supported in Sane, Xsane or anywhere else, so I needed to find an answer elsewhere. By good luck I remembered seeing something about Avasys here in the forums and tried their website :
It's not the most intuitive of sites to work in, but I finally located and downloaded a .deb file that seemed to be recommended for my V200; I installed it and BINGO !!
My scanner works fine with the gui provided with the program and an old Perfection 1200 I have works with it too. I can now scan docs, photos, negatives and slides - Result
It still won't work with Sane though !
I hope this info helps someone ....

Seems to be the closest I've been to getting it to work.
With your printer ON and connected, can you give the return of this commands in the terminal :
