I am trying to install an Epson Perfection 3170 Photo Scanner and I am not getting very far....
Scanner shows up under lsusb as
Bus 001 Device 006: ID 04b8:0116 Seiko Epson Corp. Perfection 3170 (GT-9400)
I go to hardware and then setup scanner, and it says:
EPSON Scanner is not in the scanner database, configure it manually?
I answer Yes
Go to the EPSON section, and the Perfection 3170 PHOTO is there, so I choose that one, then click OK.
It then says:
Your EPSON Perfection 3170 PHOTO has been configured. You may now scan documents using "XSane" or Kooka" from Multimedia/Graphics in the applications menu.
I click ok, and it goes back to the scanner setup menu and says:
There are no scanners found which are available on your system.
Search for new scanners
Add a scanner manually
I quit and try XSane, and it does not recognize the scanner.
Go back to hardware, and it acts like it never setup the scanner, goes back through the loop again..
I also tried the GT-9400UF Scanner, same problem.
It acts like it installs, but never saves the settings.
Anyone have any suggestions?
