Too bad. It looks like the imagescan driver is the only game in town for future Epson models.
Hopefully, the preview bug can eventually be sorted out.

There's hope.
I had time to kill yesterday, so I explored UpupBB.
My limited testing, found variety of ways to hook up the scanner.
Epkowa/Epson2 driver and xsane -> preview and scan OK. But spitted out warning/error.
If you don't do from command line, you don't see these warning/error.

Imagescan won't play with those 2 drivers above, only its own driver.
Preview and scan OK. No errors at all.

Noticable difference at a glance, the libboost pkgs are newer in UpupBB than XenPup.

@Mike
Thanks for 'introducing' me to UpupBB.
While no stranger to IT, my 'Puppy Linux' exposure is just 2 weeks old.
Given time, someone will iron out those 'bugs' hopefully.

'newest is not always the best' but sometimes one 'reluctantly' has to get 'newer' one.
For example, I had a TX650 and gave to a family member, thinking I can get another one since it was not that old then.
And I already was familiar with TX650 tricks/traps. It was like looking for hen's teeth. Laughing
No shops sell them anymore, hence I ended up with WF-2760.

@ dcung:-

Ah, well; glad to be able to help. We got you there, it seems.....even if it was by a roundabout route.

Nice one. BTW, you really don't want to know about the shenanigans that went on between Epson & Avasys over the whole saga of their Linux drivers.....despite the fact of Epson being a founder member of the Linux Foundation, their stock answer has always been, 'We don't do Linux drivers...' (even though they do!) Rolling Eyes

They're definitely available.....but you do have to hunt 'em down yourself.
