Free Image Scan Version with epkowa Driver for Epson Scanners

This version of the Image Scan for Linux software contains only free
software. The proprietary binary-only i386-only "libesint*" driver
libraries are available in the separate package
iscan-proprietary-drivers.

The "esfw*.bin" firmware files are available in the separate package
iscan-firmware.

The proprietary binary-only i386-only "libesmod" library is removed
from this package. It is required by the "/usr/bin/iscan" front-end.
This package is built without the front-end.

This package contains only the epkowa back-end for SANE, which compiles
and runs natively even on non-i386 platforms. For documentation, see
"man sane-epkowa".

Drawbacks:

The free version of the epkowa back-end cannot work for those scanners
that require proprietary binary-only i386-only libraries, available in
the separate package iscan-proprietary-drivers. At the moment, those
scanners are the following models:

Perfection 1250 / GT-7200U, Perfection 1250 PHOTO, Perfection 1260 /
GT-7300U, Perfection 1260 PHOTO, Perfection 2480 PHOTO / GT-F500,
Perfection 2580 PHOTO / GT-F550, Perfection 3170 PHOTO / GT-9400UF,
Perfection 3490 PHOTO / GT-F520, Perfection 3590 PHOTO / GT-F570,
Perfection 4180 PHOTO / GT-F600, Perfection 4490 PHOTO / GT-X750,
Perfection V10 / GT-S600, Perfection V100 PHOTO / GT-F650, Perfection
V200 PHOTO / GT-F670, Perfection V350 PHOTO / GT-F700, Stylus CX4300,
Stylus CX4400, Stylus CX5500, Stylus CX5600, Stylus DX4400.

Those models do not work with the free iscan version. They require the
original iscan package and the iscan-proprietary-drivers package, which
are only available for i386-compatible platforms.

Some scanners require proprietary firmware files that are available in
the package iscan-firmware. At the moment, those scanners are the
following models:

Perfection 2480 PHOTO / GT-F500, Perfection 2580 PHOTO / GT-F550,
Perfection 3170 PHOTO / GT-9400UF, Perfection 3490 PHOTO / GT-F520,
Perfection 3590 PHOTO / GT-F570, Perfection 4180 PHOTO / GT-F600,
Perfection 4490 PHOTO / GT-X750, Perfection V10 / GT-S600, Perfection
V100 PHOTO / GT-F650, Perfection V200 PHOTO / GT-F670, Perfection V350
PHOTO / GT-F700.

The front-end /usr/bin/iscan was removed because it requires the
proprietary binary-only i386-only "libesmod" library. This should cause
no problem because the back-end epkowa runs now natively even on
non-i386 platforms so that all the usual front-ends (like scanimage,
xscanimage, xsane, and kooka) can be used even on non-i386 platforms.
