- Obtained the driver file from http://www.epson.com.sg/epson/drivers/driver_download.htm?dc=1&mode=3&m=false&catid=5&pid=46
- Unzip the file. The file we need is TAIL_061.BIN (which is inside /DATA/BIN inside the zip file). Put this file in /usr/share/sane (or anywhere you please) and give read permission to all (chmod a+r /usr/share/sane/TAIL_061.BIN as root)
- Edit /etc/sane.d/snapscan.conf and change following line. (do as root)
- Plug the USB cable
- Start xsane (type xsane in a terminal or find the program from the menu)
- Thats it!
