New scanner/printer combo



Greetings;

My truly ancient Epson C82 finally refused to respond to the head cleaning
paddles yesterday, so I went out and got a new Epson NX515 combo scanner & 
printer.

It signs on as: (Fedora 10, kernel 2.6.32-rc5)

=========================

which appears that the scanner, ahh, wait, its got a card reader in it too,
in addition to ethernet and bluetooth.  So that explains /dev/sg9 and /dev/sgi.

So there are two problems, which do not prevent it from being used for all
sorts of utility printing.

Problem 1 is that the newest Epson/gutenprint drivers are for the NX400 
series, so the maximum useable resolution is 1440x720, whereas it can go 
as high as 5760x2880.  I would like to be able to get to 2880x2880 for photo work.

Problem 2 is that the scanner doesn't even check in as shown above.  
OTOH, I also have an Epson 1250u that works flawlessly, but it would be nice 
to get rid of one rather high occupancy item here in the coyote.den.

The current xsane device dialog skips it, going directly to the Epson 1250u, 
so xsane isn't seeing it, and while I have kooka according to the menu's, it
doesn't come when called.

Has anyone a clue to pass along?

Thanks.
