I have an Epson V370 Perfection scanner which, since upgrading from Mint 18.3 to 19.*, I've only just found out didn't work (I don't use it much). However, this fix has cured my problem.

Thanks very much!

I had upgraded to Mint 19.3, but could not get my Epson V500 scanner working, and was wondering why this was working for everyone else?

After later upgrading to Mint 20.1, and still no luck, I found what worked for me finally was to change /etc to /lib for the rules file, i.e.:
sudo nano /etc/udev/rules.d/79-udev-epson.rules

to:
sudo nano /lib/udev/rules.d/79-udev-epson.rules
Locked
