I have follow the instruction to install sane and other package and use xsane to scan , xscane work fine but since the interface is too complicated, i installed a new one called ISCAN (EPSON scanner interface for linux). After install that both xsane and iscan dont work anymore !!! xsane capture a picture from a TV channel from my TV tuner card instead of using the scaner while iscan can not connect to the scaner!!! It 's a mess now, please help!!!
