EPSON PERFECTION 3170 PHOTO SCANNER on FC1


Sir,

I am using Fedora Core 1 and want to install the above titled scanner.
The sane related rpm are as follows :
xsane-0.91-1
libsane-hpoj-0.90-19
sane-backends-devel-1.0.12-4
sane-backends-1.0.12-4
xsane-gimp-0.91-1
sane-frontends-1.0.11-3

Also downloaded iscan-2.8.0-1.i386.rpm for gcc-3.2/gcc3.3.

The necessary product code and the vendor code has been inserted by "insmod scanner vendor=XXXXXX product=XXXXX".

I am able to find the scanner with "sane-find-scanner". The output of lsmod is as follows :

[root@localhost root]# lsmod |more

The content of the file /etc/sane.d/epkowa.conf is as follows :


scsi EPSON


usb vendor=0x04b8 product=0x0116

usb /dev/usb/scanner0


Now whenever in terminal window i am issuing command as follows :

[root@localhost sane.d]# iscan

then a window is opened with the error message :

"Could not send command to scanner. Check scanner's status."

Kindly guide me in this regard.

- JAGDISH.

Fedora Core 1 hasn't been supported for over two years. Get yourself a copy of something more recent (Fedora 7 now, Fedora 8 next week).

Additonally, according to this
there's a non-free plugin required.
