When trying to install i get:

==> Installing missing dependencies...
error: target not found: iscan>=2.21
==> ERROR: 'pacman' failed to install missing dependencies.
==> Missing dependencies:
-> iscan>=2.21

Changing the depends line works for me and i can install the package (tested on a clean Arch install without any previously installed iscan packages):

The package work like a charm without dependencies with Vuescan.

Maybe a fix is needed ?

Internauta commented on 2021-07-18 15:10 (UTC)

I still have iscan and iscan-data packages installed on my local machine (i also have a copy of the old .tar.xz of both, if needed). My scanner still works right now.

I don't know if we must switch to "iscan-for-epson-v500-photo". Anyone else tried it after the iscan removal from community repos?

nvllsvm commented on 2021-06-29 03:00 (UTC)

Cannot install this package as-is since the iscan package no longer exists.

fwiw - VueScan works fine with the Epson V600 scanner with this package sans iscan installed.

For better or worse, not every person that installs AUR packages has the technical skills to correct problems when problems arise.

I'm using aurutils as an aur helper, I had to remove the old cached version of the rpm.tar.gz file as it has the same name.

Mr.Elendig commented on 2021-06-15 11:28 (UTC)

Upstream likes to randomly change the archive without changing the actual version. You can update the checksum yourself.

I have the same issue as the previous user commented

I get:

Herlock commented on 2021-05-05 21:52 (UTC)

Good to hear. Hopefully, Internauta can take care of this going forward, if not, I also have this Epson V600 scanner, and I'm running Manjaro KDE, so if you need me to test something, just let me know, will be glad to help anyway I can.

severach commented on 2021-05-05 21:49 (UTC)

I don't have that scanner and don't know if I ever have. All I need is someone who can update the package that can test the updates with the scanner.

Herlock commented on 2021-05-05 21:20 (UTC)

Internauta, thank you so very much for updating this package. I had repeatedly tried to contact the previous maintainer since last year, but unfortunately never received a response. Thanks again!!

Hello, I have updated locally the hash sums with the ones from the official source URL:


and it works. I tried to push the change, but I can't without push permission, I guess (this is my first time).

When you built the package you were getting "locale" errors from bsdtar. I don't know how this affects building the package but have you resolved these errors?

Did you receive any errors when you installed the package after it was built?

Herlock commented on 2020-10-23 15:51 (UTC) (edited on 2020-10-23 16:12 (UTC) by Herlock)

It is: Bus 002 Device 009: ID 04b8:013a Seiko Epson Corp. GT-X820 [Perfection V600 Photo]

I have the same version of Vuescan installed as you. Any idea why there appears to be a refusal to properly update this package in AUR? Seems illogical.

It should be noted that in addition to the printer driver being discussed here, Epson has made available over the last few days a Linux (rpm and deb) package that after installed delivers a scanner interface providing some of the functionality available in windows. All of this installs so easily in Debian, and it is completely denied to Arch users. Absurd.

eda2z commented on 2020-10-23 15:14 (UTC)

I have the same scanner as you and am running VueScan Pro 9.7.35 - I noticed that VueScan installation has changed over the years. Anyway, I went thru the procedure again and here is what I did:

git clone makepkg md5sum iscan-gt-x820-bundle-2.30.4.x64.rpm.tar.gz sha256sum

... update PKGBUILD with above 2 values


At this point my output differs from yours in that I do not get any of the "bsdtar: Failed to set default locale" messages - and you show 4 of them.

Is your scanner visible thru lsusb? My system shows:

Seiko Epson Corp. GT-X820 [Perfection V600 Photo

After having updated the checksums in the PKGBUILD file to reflect the correct ones, and running it, I get what's shown below, however, the Epson V600 scanner continues to be invisible to Manjaro, neither Epson's own software (Image Scan! for Linux) nor Vuescan ancknowledge a scanner is attached to the PC. So, no solution thus far for Epson V600 in Manjaro KDE. The complete lack of support by the community is amazing.

Herlock commented on 2020-10-20 00:16 (UTC)

Thanks for the comment. I in fact did exactly as you suggest, and unfortunately the install process was not successful, as my Manjaro KDE PC continued to be unable to access the scanner. In addition, I reached out the maintainer, and posted in various forums, but received zero responses, so, after two years with Manjaro, had no choice but to move on, to Debian, where the driver installed immediately. Thanks again.

eda2z commented on 2020-10-19 23:39 (UTC)

If you want to build this package you need to update the PKGBUILD file. There are 2 hash sums in the file md5sums and sha256sums. Only 1 is necessary. If you comment out the "sha256sums=" line, run md5sum against iscan-gt-x820-bundle-2.30.4.x64.rpm.tar.gz, update the "md5sums=" line with the value displayed and finally re-run makepkg you should be OK. Note that I am not a maintainer of any package and I'm sure that a version number should be updated but I just wanted to be able to update my package. Since Epson released new software and the PKGBUILD file is from 2019, the hash sums undoubtedly changed from what was in the PKGBUILD file.

Can a kind soul help me? Trying to install this driver for the Epson Perfection V600 in my Manjaro KDE PC, and get the following results:

Slightly less messy:

Please update your package. The last version is 2.2.1-1, thank's.

It looks like Epson updated their installation instructions. Have you tried this manually yet?
