    I'm looking into some deals for Epson Perfection 1670, 2400, 2480, 2580
    scanners. The last two come with transparency adaptors. The main problem
    I have is compatibility with Linux. I looked at the website for SANE,
    which worries about scanner compatibility with Linux, and these are
    all supported, which is why I listed them out of the dozens I had considered.
    The last two are listed as having some problems with Linux, in spite of
    the Linux support, and these are the only two that come with transparency
    adaptors. Also, I'm so ignorant of scanners that I don't know whether a
    photo scanner can also be used for ordinary scanning of documents. Even
    if the thing is compatible with Linux, I might need to upgrade to a new
    version of Linux to gain that compatibility, which has implications of
    its own.

  2. Sorry for the top posting.

    Check out Vuescan. It also runs under Linux. I found it to work well with
    the 2450 under 'Doze.
