So, I should run those scripts before I install the data folder, then? The readme file that came with the data and control folders said to install the data folder first, but that's what hasn't been working.

best regards

I'm not asking about the contents of subdirectories of data directory. What is the output of ls command in data directory just post that.

Isn't there any executable file in data directory?
Or you can checkout the .deb package of drivers on google.

There are executable files in the folders that are nested inside the folders I listed. Please see my previous post for the complete list.

Yes I saw there are some executable files but I don't think those files will compile the package.

Oh dear. The package I downloaded was the one recommended by Epson for Linux Mint users who had OS 5 and above.

Do you know of another place I might be able to find a package or patch that would make Isadora compatible with one or both of my scanners again? The 1660 worked perfectly until last week, so I think it's something that changed in one of the recent updates.

Thanks, Satyaveer. Unfortunately, that's where I got the driver packages that aren't working properly. Epson offers the Linux drivers that used to be available at Avasys, but they don't have Linux support.

I'll post a help request on the Linux Mint forum, and link to this thread.
best regards

At the bottom of the page just click accept button and it will show list of downloadable packages.

Thanks...yes, that's where I got the download that's not installing properly. Epson provides Linux drivers, but they don't have any Linux support.

Yeah, they don't have linux support but still you can try. Download the debian package and give it a try to install.
