    Epson V330 scanner install on Ubuntu 12.04 64 bit

    I've followed other threads and Epson support and installed in order, having first purged/removed iscan:-


    ImageScan! for Linux is then present as an icon but on clicking does nothing i.e desktop remains blank.

    sane-find-scanner found V330 at libsub:001:009

    Any ideas what I can next try?

    looking at this thread

    I see in post #2, Joe Taylor commented

    To set up your device for scanning via its network interface, follow the steps outlined below:

    1. Download and install the latest version of Image Scan! for Linux from here.
    2. If your device has a supported network interface, the iscan-network-nt plugin will also be available for download. Download and install the version appropriate for your system.
    3. Now configure your device for network access. You need to set or obtain the IP address of the device. Please consult the product manual for details on how to do this.
    4. Configure Image Scan! for Linux to connect to your device by editing /etc/sane.d/epkowa.conf. You need administrative privileges to do so. Read the instructions in the file about network configuration and add an entry for your device as indicated.
    5. Finally, disable the conflicting epson2 SANE backend. You can do so by changing the line consisting of "epson2" to "#epson2" in /etc/sane.d/dll.conf. This will require administrative privileges.
    .....he got his advice from this post

    to edit such files, I would use the text editor gedit and so issue the command

    sudo gedit /etc/sane.d/epkowa.conf
    and then

    sudo gedit /etc/sane.d/dll.conf
    I got my advice by googling on
