The EPSON Perfection 1250, 1260 and 660 are not and will very likely not be supported by this SANE backend.
… and back to the regularly scheduled program
Some of the EPSON scanners have a letter after the model number, this usually indicates which interface a scanner is using: S for SCSI and U for USB – and some scanners even come with both interfaces: SU. If one model is supported, then in all cases I know about all interfaces are supported.
The list of supported scanners in the official SANE release is at the SANE site. This is however not the latest and greatest version. The backend version you can download from my site supports the following scanners:
|ActionScanner II||GT-5000||GT-5000||SCSI, Parallel|
|Perfection 636||GT-7000||GT-7000||SCSI, USB|
|Perfection 1200||Perfection 1200||GT-7600||SCSI, USB|
|Perfection 1240||SCSI, USB|
|Perfection 1640||SCSI, USB|
|Perfection 610||Perfection 610||GT-6600||USB|
|Perfection 640||Perfection 640||USB|
|Expression 1600||Expression 1600||ES-2000||SCSI, USB, IEEE-1394|
|Expression 1640||SCSI, USB, IEEE-1394|
|Expression 1680||SCSI, USB, IEEE-1394|
|Perfection 1650||Perfection 1650||Perfection 1650||USB|
|Perfection 1660||Perfection 1660||Perfection 1660||USB|
|Perfection 2450||Perfection 2450||Perfection 2450||USB||The IEEE-1394 interface is now also supported (in the CVS version).|
|Perfection 2400||Perfection 2400||Perfection 2400||USB|
|Perfection 600||Unsupported||This is actually a UMAX Astra 1200S in disguise. The UMAX backend will handle this scanner. Check out Oliver Rauch’s UMAX page|
|FilmScan 200||Unsupported||FilmScan 200 – A better backend for the FilmScan 200 can be found at http://www.vjet.demon.co.uk/scanner/|
The parallel port scanners should work, I only have confirmation for those that are marked as “supported”. For more information about the parallel port scanners please see Christian Bucher’s web site. All SCSI scanners should work, the only exception here is the Perfection 600, which does work with Sane, just not with the EPSON backend (see the comments in the table for more information). For all USB scanners check out my USB Scanner page. For more information about the IEEE-1394 scanners, check my IEEE-1394 Scanner page.
