@alexdw: Thank you sir. My kludge seemed to work, but I know at least the license file stuff didn't appear to be correct.

@muncrief: Updated with new download links and license file - thanks!

This package no longer works and I flagged it out of date.

However I was able to create a new PKGBUILD file that works and have pasted it below. I have a functioning scanner for my WF-2650 again.

@aledw: Yes, and this package already comes with it's own network plugin. I tried using the ubuntu package but it didn't work. I'll try other solutions when i have some time available.

@leosanvieira: Do you mean this (
It might be possible to use the Debian package for Arch like for this network plugin?

leosanvieira commented on 2017-03-22 22:33

@alexdw, yes i did. After some search, it seems my scanner may not be compatible with the iscan package, it needs the imagescanv3 which is not packaged yet.

@leosanvieira: Just to check, you also have 'net' uncommented in "/etc/sane.d/dll.conf"?
And you've specified the IP address (rather than a hostname or similar) using 'net ##.##.##.##' in "/etc/sane.d/epkowa.conf"?
I just tried on a fresh(ish) Arch Linux install and it works fine (with an Epson XP-202, with fixed IP address) via Wifi for me.
All I did was add 'epkowa' to "/etc/sane.d/dll.conf" and 'net ##.##.##.##' (the scanner's fixed IP address) to "/etc/sane.d/epkowa.conf" and it works fine with 'iscan'.

@alexdw, Everytime i try to use iscan i receive the following message after a long time: "Could not send command to scanner. Check the scanner's status.". I have "epkowa" in /etc/sane.d/dll.conf and "net {ip}" in /etc/sane.d/epkowa.conf. Any suggestions? Epson L375.

thanks! 1.1.1-13 works for me

@crs, @vorbote: Just uploaded a version that should hopefully fix both issues now, by correcting the sub-archive used in the new bundle download file.

I have tested on my setup and I can access my Epson network scanner successfully.
