Epson scanner not recognised

Postby mikejd » Mon May 28, 2012 3:19 pm

I have recently purchased an Epson SX435W printer/scanner but it is not recognised by Xsane for scanning. Has anyone tried this printer or can advise where to find a driver?

Thanks,
Mike

Hi towy71,
I found this driver before but as far as I can see it is only a printer driver. What I need is a scanner driver.

Xsane doesn't recognise it. Although sane-backend epson2 (which I have installed) lists sx410 series this doesn't come up in the list of scanners to manually install, so I can't try that.

cheers,
Mike
