Epson WorkForce DS-30 document scanner in linux

Purchased this little DS-30. portable document scanner recently, and although it was quite easy to setup in linux, I'd thought I'd post the steps if anyone else is looking for it.

I installed this in Debian, but any deb or rpm based distro should work pretty much the same. First Search for "ds-30" at the epson linux download page.

You'll need to download three files:

Then go ahead and install these files with dpkg:

sudo dpkg -i iscan_2.30.0-1~usb0.1.ltdl7_amd64.deb iscan-data_1.33.0-1_all.deb iscan-plugin-ds-30_1.0.0-3_amd64.deb

And if that all went ok, you can then run iscan, or aquire image from iscan in the gimp (file->create->iscan).

The scanner itself won't do anything when you plug it in. The light only comes on when iscan is loaded and connected to the scanner.
