Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

OK. Downloaded the file in rpm. I installed Alien in order to convert to deb, but unfortunately I can't get the terminal to open the iscan file:
"melvyn-Dimension-C521 Desktop # sudo alien iscan-2.29.1-5.usb0.1.ltdl3.i386.rpm
File "iscan-2.29.1-5.usb0.1.ltdl3.i386.rpm" not found."
I used GDebi package installer that came out of the official repositories. Iscan doesn't appear in the repositories. In any case, I think that you have wasted enough time on this, so don't bother. I can use the scanner in VirtualBox, which is a pain of course, having to start up VB when you need the scanner. Besides, it means that one continues to be Windows dependant. But at least it works. Too bad I didn't write down how I solved the problem when I was using Ubuntu 12.10.
Just to let you know, it is now working! I uninstalled everything I could see related to the scanner, then installed a couple of drivers from AVASYS instead of Epson.Then I couldn't access the scanner (although it was recognised) (see attached screenshot) but searched and did "sudo chmod 0666 /dev/bus/usb/001/009". Miraculously, Sane appeared with, apparently, all its functionalities.
Yes. I downloaded the deb file but the system refused to install it. Please see attached screenshot. Message reads "Error: The dependency cannot be satisfied: iscan-data.
It is available withe the files in the same page ..its name is iscan-data_1.20.0-1_all.deb .. it is the last file in the list.
this piece of information for people who have problems with the drivers of their Epson printer in the future.. Good Luck
