@alexdw, yes i did. After some search, it seems my scanner may not be compatible with the iscan package, it needs the imagescanv3 which is not packaged yet.

@leosanvieira: Just to check, you also have 'net' uncommented in "/etc/sane.d/dll.conf"?
And you've specified the IP address (rather than a hostname or similar) using 'net ##.##.##.##' in "/etc/sane.d/epkowa.conf"?
I just tried on a fresh(ish) Arch Linux install and it works fine (with an Epson XP-202, with fixed IP address) via Wifi for me.
All I did was add 'epkowa' to "/etc/sane.d/dll.conf" and 'net ##.##.##.##' (the scanner's fixed IP address) to "/etc/sane.d/epkowa.conf" and it works fine with 'iscan'.

@alexdw, Everytime i try to use iscan i receive the following message after a long time: "Could not send command to scanner. Check the scanner's status.". I have "epkowa" in /etc/sane.d/dll.conf and "net {ip}" in /etc/sane.d/epkowa.conf. Any suggestions? Epson L375.

thanks! 1.1.1-13 works for me

@crs, @vorbote: Just uploaded a version that should hopefully fix both issues now, by correcting the sub-archive used in the new bundle download file.

I have tested on my setup and I can access my Epson network scanner successfully.

@crs: Thanks for the information. I'm seeing a similar issue on my setup.

It looks like the download package changed more than I had initially thought - I will have a look at fixing this (and resolving the conflict with iscan-data) later today.

after upgrading this package, running iscan produces a pop-up error: "Could not send command to scanner. Check the scanner's status." Any suggestions would be welcome! I have "epkowa" in /etc/sane.d/dll.conf and "net" in /etc/sane.d/epkowa.conf

On quick glance at the file list of iscan-data, it looks almost (but not quite) identical to the files provided by iscan-plugin-network.
For now I've added iscan-data to conflicts for this package.

@vorbote: Thanks for the information.

When I get some time this week I'll have a look at iscan-data to see where it overlaps with iscan-plugin-network. I didn't create the initial package, and until this last update have only really been updating the source file links as they have become outdated. It's possible iscan-data provides most of what's in iscan-plugin-network already.

Hi, your updated package conflicts with iscan-data in community. Please fix this filing bugs in flyspray (you should depend on community/iscan-data and reporting an outdated package in community TBH).
