OK.

1. I made a clean install of Xenial.
2. I went to the Epson repo and got the Ubuntu-16 version of the scanner driver. Make sure that you get the correct 32/64 bit version.
3. I extracted it.
4. The install script doesn't work, so I opened the "core" folder and click-installed the main imagescan.deb
5. I ran the PPM and got the extra package libboost-program-options.
6. I ran imagescan

This starts the program, but there are more missing dependencies, like graphicsmagik.

It may be possible to run this as a regular SANE backend with the Xsane scanning app.

1. Open /etc/sane.d/dll.conf
2. At the bottom, add "imagescan"
3. Run: scanimage -L

I just downloaded Ubuntu-16 (64bit) from Epson repo. It won't install since I already got Ubuntu-18 installed. Said "Already installed. Can't install twice"
I ran the PPM and got the extra package libboost-program-options.
Imagescan still would not run, same error. libboost_filesystem.so.1.62.0
In PPM I already installed libboost_filesystem.1.58.0, there's no v1.62.

Did these too, but as expected, no use since imagescan not running yet.

You can run the app, maybe Ubuntu-16 driver is ok with libboost_filesystem.1.58.
I'll try clean install XenPup and try again...
I don't know how to uninstall the Ubuntu-18 driver.

FYI - After you said imagescan run ok in Debian Stretch, I got curious and installed it on my Kali. Yes, it installed and run ok.

Fresh install XenPup64-7.5

Ubuntu-16 (64bit) scanner driver from Epson repo.

Got to the same state you are.
Imagescan run. Didn't get any errors. But sees no scanner.

Yes, and I made sure scanner is on.
sane-find-scanner also sees it.

Then I don't know.

There is something sufficiently different about Puppy Xenial versus genuine Xenial that keeps it from running.

No problem, rcrsn51... Very Happy
Thanks for keeping me company on this 'quest'.

I get to refresh my 'dormant' limited Linux skill.

Just looking for lightweight OS to revive old laptops in the family circle.

Cheers.

Could you go to your Kali install and see if the SANE setup commands work there?

1. Open /etc/sane.d/dll.conf
2. At the bottom, add "imagescan"
3. Run: scanimage -L

From Kali

Interesting, I heard the scanner making noises.
And it sees the scanner IP address! I didn't put it anywhere in Kali.
Not sure whether it picked up from network or USB connection.

I don't know why Xenial can't detect the device via USB.

The second entry is from the old epson2 SANE backend that has an autodetect mechanism. It must be seeing the scanner because its wifi is still turned on.

Do they both work in Imagescan under Kali?

I wonder why Xenial couldn't detect it by epson2. Maybe because the networking plugin wasn't installed.

So you're saying in Kali, the scanner was seen thru both USB and wifi?
Well, I guess, it's easy for me to check/confirm.
I'll just unplug the USB....

I unplug USB, and scanimage -L only give one entry this time (wifi one).
But imagescan does not see scanner now.
