    epson v600 photo installation problem

    i have a hp pavillion p6-2497 with ubuntu 13.04 newly installed ;
    i encounter my first major problem with installation of my epson v600 photo scanner
    both simple scan and xsane scan image fail to start it .
    sane-find-scanner tool actually sees the scanner : report says :

    "mhb@m-p6-2497ef:~$ sudo sane-find-scanner

    # sane-find-scanner will now attempt to detect your scanner. If the
    # result is different from what you expected, first make sure your
    # scanner is powered up and properly connected to your computer.

    # No SCSI scanners found. If you expected something different, make sure that
    # you have loaded a kernel SCSI driver for your SCSI adapter.

    found USB scanner (vendor=0x04b8 [EPSON], product=0x013a [EPSON Scanner]) at libusb:001:030
    could not fetch string descriptor: Pipe error
    could not fetch string descriptor: Pipe error
    # Your USB scanner was (probably) detected. It may or may not be supported by
    # SANE. Try scanimage -L and read the backend's manpage.

    # Not checking for parallel port scanners.

    # Most Scanners connected to the parallel port or other proprietary ports
    # can't be detected by this program."

    then i ran scanimage-L as advised, report said :

    "mhb@m-p6-2497ef:~$ sudo scanimage -L
    [sudo] password for mhb:

    No scanners were identified. If you were expecting something different,
    check that the scanner is plugged in, turned on and detected by the
    sane-find-scanner tool (if appropriate). Please read the documentation
    which came with this software (README, FAQ, manpages)."

    any ideas welcome

    could not find what the issue was with my 13.04 system. Possibly something i did . to be safe i switched to ubuntu 12.04 . which seems reliable . then i was able to install scan drivers successfully . Did as in this thread :
    http://doc.ubuntu-fr.org/scanner_epson
    which tells you to install 3 files :
    iscan.xxx-ltdl7
    iscan data
    iscan plugin ( to be installed last )
    careful choose 64 or 32 bit system . dont forget to reboot .
