I have an Epson Stylus SX-415 all in one printer scanner (yeah I know Epson support for Linux is pretty poor) I have managed to get the printer working, but can't scan anything. I have Xsane (0.998) installed. When I tried to use this, a message telling me it needs a backend installing Looking on the internet I have found that it needs backend 1.0.214. I have managed to download this tar.gz file to my desktop. OK what on earth do I do now? Research, suggests I need a degree in computer science. Opening the terminal fills me with dread, so some extremely simple instructions would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
