    Exclamation Problem with multi-function epson stylus sx218

    Hi, I have a big problem. I bought a multifunction stylus sx218 Espon model and I can not run the scanner function. I did some research and found a few solutions and very functional. I hope someone solves the problem. My version of openSUSE 11.2. Thank you and sorry for my english unclear.

    Did you download the drivers from the Avasys site?

    Download scanner driver and utility (iscan-data and iscan packages) from here:

    All-in-Ones (Multifunction Inkjet Printers) | AVASYS CORPORATION

    Be careful with the package selection (eg 64-bit or 32-bit RPMs). Then install with the package manager.

    Thank you for responding quickly. what I've written, I had already done the program and I also download Imagescan. but the program does not recognize me just the scanner. The printer function works fine to me.

    Sorry, I don't quite understand. Is the scanner recognised? Do you have iscan installed?

    What does these commands (from a terminal) return?

    Code:
    scanimage -L
    Code:
    sane-find-scanner

    Sorry... my english is not very well.
    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).

    So your scanner is detected:

    Code:
    found USB scanner (vendor=0x04b8, product=0x0865) at libusb:002:006
    Now, you haven't told me if you installed iscan-data and iscan packages from the Avasys site.

    Become root with

    Code:
    su -
    and enter root password when prompted. Then type

    Code:
    rpm -qa grep iscan
    What is the output?

    If the packages are installed, please type

    Code:
    iscan
    (with printer/scanner attached of course).

    Yes, i installed iscan-data and iscan packages

    rpm -qa grep iscan

    That's what gave me:
    grep-2.5.4-4.2.i586


    If the packages are installed, please type

    Code:
    iscan
    (with printer/scanner attached of course).
    Then I typed iscan, the result is:
    "could non sent command to scanner.
    check the scanner's status

    Try running iscan as root (Maybe its a permissions problem)

    Code:
    su -
    
    then
    
    iscan
    Any difference? If this works, it may be necessary to add user to the appropriate group.

    As regular user, what does this command return?

    Code:
    groups
    From memory, you need to be a member of the 'lp' group for epson scanning to work as a user.
