Installing Epson Perfection V300 Photo on openSUSE 13.2

Locate Linux drivers on http://download.ebz.epson.net/dsc/search/01/search/?OSC=LX
Search for “v300”

The search gives two results:

  1. “iscan plugin package” from 2011
  2. “core package&data package” from 2015

You need both. The first one is esci-interpreter-gt-f720-0.1.1-2.* which is a necessary plugin for iscan to enable the software to talk to the scanner via USB. Without it, you get odd “Permission denied” errors and “scanimage --list-devices” will come back with “No scanners were identified.”

Then get iscan-2.30.1-1.usb0.1.ltdl3.x86_64.rpm (not sure what those files with a ~ in the name at the top are) plus iscan-data-1.36.0-1.noarch.rpm from the second search result.

Install all three of them at the same time.

Both scanimage and xsane should now be able to detect and use the scanner.
