epson sx105 all-in-one scanner problem

Have managed to get printer working in Ubuntu 8.10 but scanner is not being recognised. Copy function works through printer controls, but scanner not assessable.
(All works fine in Windows XP!)
Any help?

It might help to know the name and model of the scanner. Then I would suggest you google {name and model of scanner} linux (all together). That might give you some idea how to do it.

Unhappy Does your scanner work?

Hi everybody,
I recently have transferred to Linux and in anticipation of that bought myself an Epson printer-scanner.

It now seems that not all Epson scanners have Linux drivers? I also tried Googling for the driver but got nowhere.

I use the scanner for graphics which is core to my business - without a scanner to hand I am in difficulties.

What can be done? Does anyone know if there is a program, or am I out and buying another machine? I thought all Epsons would work with Linux.
