EPSON Scanner not working

Postby antonito on Mon Feb 11, 2013 7:16 am

Hi! I have an Epson TX560WD multifunctional. "Simple scan" does not detect it. Si I installed "Image Scan! for linux" and "XSane Image scanning program". None of these detect my scanner. I went to the epson webpage and downloaded the driver for the scanner. Still cannot get it working.
Can you help me?

VueScan does not detect my scanner. I'm newbie in Linux, but my intuition tells me it is a matter of configuration.

Please, look the post below where you will find the link that solved my problem.
