I have found several sites describing having sucessfully installed drivers for the Epson Perfection 4180 Photo scanner but all of them require a download from the Epson AvaSys site ( http://www.avasys.jp/lx-bin2/linux_e/scan/DL1.do ). When I go there I get a "http status 404 - not available".

Is this probably just a temporary problem or, if not, is there an alternative approach?

Thanks in advance.
