Scanner epson v10 doesn't work

Postby klausmuellerdueppel » Fri Jun 05, 2009 1:39 pm

I just installed mint 7 and all works well except the scanner. Access ist denied ('epkowa:interpreter:001:015'). I had no problems with the scanner on ubuntu 9.04 after instaling 'iscan' / 'iscan-plugin' from avasys and libltdl3 (after deinstalling 'libsane-extras'). What's going wrong? Klaus

try typing in these commands in a terminal;

firstly as user, and then as sudo

sane-fine-scanner -q

scanimage -L

the first should discover your scanner no matter who runs it; the second can only access your scanner if it has permission
