I have plugged my Epson Perfection 610 USB scanner into my MEPIS 6.0 box but am unable to scan with it. This scanner is supported by the Epson backend.
finds the scanner at libusb:003:002
# scanimage -vT -d epson
moves the scanner head.
# scanimage -L
never returns anything, but uses 100% of the CPU.
never shows a window on the screen.
This problem is essentially the same as
which was never answered.
Has anyone gotten an Epson Perfection 610 or newer USB scanner to work with MEPIS 6.0?
