Can you give the output of:

Finally solved the problem by installing Image Scan! for Linux from the
Epson website at:
Installed the data package first, then the core package for my version
of 10.04LTS.

When I first installed software for my NX100 I had to use a package for
the NX110, which was the closest version then available. Now the Epson
site links through for more models than when I first got mine to work.

I was going to install the LSB packages but found this set of downloads
instead. Maybe they would have been in the LSB, but I wouldn't know as
I'm not up to speed on Debian matters.

Thanks for the quick reponse!
