I tried VueScan but it dosen't work.
The VueScan Linux Release Notes:
If you're using the Epson Perfection 4490 (GT-X750), make sure you
have /usr/lib/libesint54.so from the Epson AVASYS SANE distribution.
You also need to set up the environment variable
SANEI_EPKOWA_FIRMWAREFILE to point to the firmware file esfw54.bin.
But libesint54.so and esfw54.bin are not in the newest iscan package.
