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
and this is the strange part: why does it not show the scanner? What
does lsusb return? Does the scanner work under Windows? Not that it
matters much as the scanner seems not supported by Sane right now. But
maybe this is just a matter of adding the usb id....
The scanner does show in an lsusb -v, but not without the -v, here is a

I suggest to keep an eye on http://avasys.jp/eng/linux_driver/
these guys make some linux drivers for Epson devices (they are in some

very good drivers.
Do a yum install gutenprint-cups and see if your printer is in the Printer
Package gutenprint-cups-5.2.4-4.fc10.i386 already installed and latest
Because if I had my druthers, only gutenprint would ever be installed, all
the others are just so much noise in the cups driver list.
