[ubuntu] Unable To Scan With Epson NX430

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I have used simplescan several times in the past without a problem until I went to scan a document today. Error: unable to connect to scanner I looked at the preference to select the source but the same error. Disconnected the USB cable and reconnected, no luck. I've updated Ubuntu 12.04 64bit via Update Manager, could that be the cause? scanimage -L output: device `epkowa:usb:002:008' is a Epson (unknown model) flatbed scanner (Hardware)
