@leosanvieira: Thanks! It also builds for me, and I can actually scan something without getting a segfault. One note: it does not build if the libmagick package is installed.

scanimage -L still doesn't detect the scanner after hot-plugging it; thanks for the link to the problem report.

@pat42smith, just uploaded new version, no more compile erros now. I have a L375 and it's working as usual for me, but i use it through wireless so this might be the reason why. The following bug report tells me you're not the only one, so it might be useful for you to keep watching it. As it seems a kernel config problem, there's nothing really i can do for now.

This doesn't seem to build anymore; there are compile errors relating to ImageMagick. I got around these by suppressing the use of ImageMagick in the configure options inside PKGBUILD, but now scanimage segfaults when I try to scan something. However, scanimage -L runs without a segfault.

But I'm having a different problem: scanimage -L only sees my ES-400 scanner if the scanner is powered on when I boot the computer. If I turn on the scanner after booting the computer, scanimage -L doesn't find the scanner. See This problem existed even with the stock 3.33.0-1 I built about a month ago, and is why I tried to rebuild it now.

BTW, the Epson web site has a new Fedora release (27 instead of 26) for this package.

@TheCosmicVortex, after some browsing, i found the pages below and came to the conclusion that just a .desktop file rename was enough to solve the issue. So i've uploaded a new PKGBUILD but didn't change it's version so that non Gnome users don't have to compile it again. To solve the problem, just reinstall it.

@TheCosmicVortex, the same also happens with me, even though i had not realized until you said so, as i don't really use the dash. After some testing, it seems the same also happens with some java apps like pdfsam, so i guess that makes it a gnome issue.

The launcher icon won't show on the gnome dash panel when I open the app, is anyone else facing the same issue ? Is it an issue with the .desktop file or a gnome bug ?
