Which Epson drivers should I download for a V500Photo device?

Asked by Lawry Sager on 2012-05-24

Epson "does not support" my Linux OS., so I need to know which driver to download from a rather long list available.

I have an Epson PerfectionV500Photo device that I am attempting to use with my Linux OS.

I have gone to Epson support and can get as far as the list of drivers at which time someone there tells me to ask Linux which driver(s) to download.

Linux (by phone contact) told me they "don't do that".
