    Default Success: EPSON Perfection 1260/Photo USB flatbed scanner

    Hi,

    after managing to print [url]http://panda.mostang.com/sane/sane-mfgs.html[/url]
    on a few pages, I went out and looked for a new scanner, the light of
    my old SCSI scanner broke some time ago and of course it wasn't possible
    to get a spare part.;(

    "EPSON Perfection 1260/Photo USB" was the first one supported I could find.

    Updated some packages (The ones coming with RH 7.3 were too old):

    sane-frontends-1.0.11-1.rh7
    xsane-0.91-1
    sane-backends-devel-1.0.12-1
    xsane-gimp-0.91-1
    sane-backends-1.0.12-1

    Astonishing, there is GUI-sw directly from Epson (iscan-1.5.2-1) working
    fine too:

    [url]http://www.epkowa.co.jp/english/linux_e/linux.html[/url]

    From /etc/modules.conf:
    alias char-major-180 scanner
    options scanner vendor=0x04b8 product=0x011d

    The following modules are needed:

    scanner 10976 0
    usb-uhci 24132 0 (unused)
    usbcore 76992 1 [scanner usb-uhci visor usbserial]

    Now the scanner should be recognized:

    $ scanimage -L
    device `epkowa:/dev/usb/scanner0' is a Epson GT-7300 flatbed scanner
    device `plustek:/dev/usb/scanner0' is a Epson Perfection 1260/Photo USB flatbed scanner

    Works great within gimp.;)

    Happy scanning!

    Drop an email to Epson. Let them know how pleased you are. It will show
    them it worth supporting Linux.
