    Recently got a new printer, Epson RX600 (all-in-one
    scanner/printer/card reader/etc USB2).

    After some initial problems with usb(2) in kernel 2.6.7, applied
    bk15 patch and things went smooth.;)

    Updated/installed the following (just for completeness, if anyone
    getting this printer searching the archives, as it's pretty new)


    pips-sprx600_610-cups-2.6.2-1 ->
    iscan-1.9.0-5 ->

    (Both directly from Epson rpm and source available iscan installs
    a gimp plug-in in addition)

    One of the remaining problems are the hotplug scripts on my box,
    that don't handle 'libusb' devices, probably as they are kernel

    After turning off/on the printers libusb "device" is counted
    up, requiring to edit /etc/sane.d/epkowa.conf and changing perms
    on /proc/bus/usb/003/<new assigned number>, in order to be able
    to use the device as user.

    So it looks like I need hotplug scripts that work with kernel
    2.6. I'd like to hear your experience.
