Thread: Epson iscan scanner software doens't compile anymore

    Post Epson iscan scanner software doens't compile anymore

    Hello everyone,

    I am having trouble getting my "Epson Perfection V500 Photo" to run.

    Epson does provide some rpms but the files are fairly outdated and I tried building from source:

    The configure script seems to work fine but I am getting the following error when running "make":

    Code:
     g++ -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I.. -I../include -g -O2 -MT libimage_stream_la-basic-imgstream.lo -MD -MP -MF .deps/libimage_stream_la-basic-imgstream.Tpo -c basic-imgstream.cc  -fPIC -DPIC -o .libs/libimage_stream_la-basic-imgstream.o
    In file included from basic-imgstream.cc:34:
    basic-imgstream.hh:55:10: fatal error: ltdl.h: No such file or directory
       55 | #include <ltdl.h>
          |          ^~~~~~~~
    compilation terminated.
    make[3]: *** [Makefile:409: libimage_stream_la-basic-imgstream.lo] Fehler 1
    make[3]: Verzeichnis „/home/mwagner/Downloads/iscan-2.30.3/lib“ wird verlassen
    make[2]: *** [Makefile:491: all-recursive] Fehler 1

    make[1]: Verzeichnis „/home/mwagner/Downloads/iscan-2.30.3“ wird verlassen
    make: *** [Makefile:318: all] Fehler 2
    I tried the support chat but they were no help at all and couldn't give me an address or ticket system to file / report a bug.

    I also posted this issue on the SANE-Mailinglist.

    Does it compile fine on your systems?

    Hi
    The ltdl.h header is part of the libtool package, so install that and you should be good to go. I would surmise if you look at the config.log it may indicate there it's missing....

    Well, it is the impression that I get when looking at their supported distribution list for the .deb and .rpm packages. Also the NEWS file contained in the source tarball mentions 2016 as last update.

    I did try contacting the Epson support chat but the helpdesk agent wasn't much of help either and the issue didn't escalate to a higher support level. I wish they had a support-ticket system where I could file the error message and console output directly with Epson developers. For them it should be quite easy to fix this and release a new package.

        Image Scan! is a graphical scanner utility for people that do not need
        all the bells and whistles provided by several of the other utilities
        out there (xsane, QuiteInsane, Kooka).
    
        At the moment it only supports SEIKO EPSON scanners and all-in-ones.
        However, the scanner driver it provides can be used by any other SANE
        standard compliant scanner utility.
    
        Note that several scanners require a non-free plugin before they can
        be used with this software.

    Description    :                                              
        This plugin converts between the native protocol of the supported
        devices and the ESC/I protocol.  The latter protocol is supported
        by the SANE 'epkowa' backend, part of Image Scan!, and some other
        SANE backends.  However, only the 'epkowa' backend provides the
        hooks needed to use this plugin.
    
        You only need this plugin if you have one of the following models:
         - GT-S650
         - Epson Perfection V19
         - Epson Perfection V39

    That's great but I am still having problems scanning slides and negatives with my Epson Perfection V500 Photo. Xsane mentioned an "invalid argument" as its error message and there is no console output.

    Preview in the version of iscan I gathered from the Epson shell installer works for flatbed but not for the translucent unit when I set iscan to "Positive Film". I gathered the iscan package for the Epson site but didn't install the rpm and used the shell installer which didn't work flawlessly either. It did unpack some rpms which I installed with "rpm -i package".

    I wish there was a way to get through to Epson developers and I am assuming it would be fairly straightforward for them to update the packages.

    If anyone knows where to file bugs with Epson please let me know.
