Did you tell the OP that? I missed it. Oh, I see you asked what file the
OP downloaded and that question was left hanging without a response.

Epson only seems to provide a single generic package for their
scanners/multifunction printers.


I was thrown off by the OP's error message:

 Failed to open device 'epkowa:usb:002:003':

Maybe that's related to the (perhaps unwise) entry the OP added to
/etc/sane.d/epkowa.conf. It's true the installation manual linked above
makes no mention of it.

That too, I guess.
