Ubuntu – How to get an Epson TX560WD scanner working

11.1064-bitepsonscanning

I have a Epson TX560WD, the printer works perfectly on Ubuntu 11.10, but the scanner don't.

I installed XSane and xsane-extras, but the scanner it's not recognized either way. When I open XSane the following message shows up: "no device available".

According to Sane Project the Epson TX560WD is tagged as "Complete", so it should work (I guess so).

Also my Ubuntu 11.10 is 64 bits.

What I should do, to make the scanner work?

  • Tried installing iscan but that doesn't work.
