    seems like folks have been installing this scanner for some time on Ubuntu:

    I googled on

    ubuntu solved epson perfection 660 scanner
    and got various links from 2008 onwards ..

    from sane

    http://www.sane-project.org/sane-mfgs.html#Z-EPSON

    for the 660, it shows good support

    Perfection 660 USB 0x04b8/0x0114 Good SnapScan
    (1.4) sane-snapscan
    this link

    https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HardwareSupp...sScannersEpson

    suggests you need to edit a file and it would seem the command to open the file is

    gksudo gedit /etc/sane.d/snapscan.conf
    and it quotes a link you should read
