@Scimmia: Thanks, I'll look into this.

btw, this might also affect other iscan-plugin packages. IIRC, many PKGBUILDs in that area were very similar.

Why is this extracting the source a second time? makepkg already does it for you.

Edit: ah, you're extracting an rpm from inside the rpm. You should still use bsdtar the same as makepkg does for this, though, instead of the useless wrapper script.

Build on i686 was broken. Sorry. Should be fixed now.

Hi strebski,

it seems, rpmextract can't find the rpm file.

Are you on i686? Can you post the output of `ls -al` in your $srcdir?

there is an error related with iscan-plugin-gt-s600 update 2.1.2_1-4 4 -> 5

==> Starting package()...

==> ERROR: Error occurred in package().

Could anyone check is everything correct? Thanks in advance!

On a first try, I uninstalled all the three packages and installed them again, but the scanner (V100) was still not working.

Then I checked for any files with iscan on their path and the only file that was left over after uninstalling the three packages was

I uninstalled the packages, deleted the file, installed again and the scanner now works. Unfortunately I don't have the old file to compare their content.

Vain commented on 2013-01-27 08:48

Do you remember those file names? Were they installed by this package?

nplatis commented on 2013-01-26 20:02

There seemed to be some left-over files on my system, which were not removed even with pacman -Rns. After I cleaned them by hand, the scanner works again.

nplatis commented on 2013-01-26 19:36

Still not working here... My scanner is a Perfection V100 Photo.

I removed completely iscan, iscan-data and the plugin, and re-installed.

I updated the sources.

"But" my scanner still works, both on i686 and x86_64. Here's what I did: I removed this plugin, iscan-data and iscan, updated iscan and iscan-data, and finally reinstalled this plugin.

Vain commented on 2013-01-24 08:25

Gah, that's great. >:(

Need to investigate this when I get home. It appears there are still some downloads available at Epsons website:

...But unfortunately my scanner no longer works under Linux.

scanimage -L reports
device `epkowa:interpreter:002:009' is a Epson (unknown model) flatbed scanner

which is not very good.

Anyone else using this plugin?

nplatis commented on 2013-01-23 21:36

The download link no longer works as Avasys is not providing download for Epson drivers any more.

Also check the iscan and iscan-data packages.

Here is a download link that worked for me (for x86_64):

I can adopt the package if you want to. In the meantime, here's my PKGBUILD:

someone adopt this package, please.

A new version is available :

There is a typo in the PKGBUILD: it should cd to $srcdir instead of $startdir.

basinilya commented on 2010-09-19 09:32

Based on the PKGBUILD from
