Thanks, the link at bugzilla is the problem I'm seeing also. I'm assuming I 
can use xsane if I get the cvs mentioned. I have sane which came 
with the 10.0 dvd. I noticed there is an unsupported sane test package on the 
Suse websites. later release. I'll try the test of removing usblp and restore 
it if the scanner works, then get the cvs. I am assuming this also applies to 
the epkowa backend or do I just configure xsane,etc. I noticed the product ID 
in the libsane.usermap and in iscan user map is wrong for this product.

found USB scanner (vendor=0x04b8 [EPSON], product=0x0813 [USB2.0 MFP]) at 

this is the product ID I was using in SuSE 9.1 with epkowa backend and iscan.

Again thats for your continuing help.
