Well, I have an Epson "all-in-one" Stylus Office BX525WD[1].
It is not connected directly to a machine, it is connected to my LAN (wireless).
The scanner part actually works quite ok under FreeBSD, the only problem is that SANE on FreeBSD
doesn't detect it automatically (it does on Linux / Xubuntu), so I have to do this like:
xsane epson2:net:
gscan2pdf --device epson2:net:

As I can't specify the device when using xsane as a GIMP plugin, I can't use the GIMP.

For some reason, xscanimage just core dumps:
tingo at kg-v2$ xscanimage epson2:net:
Segmentation fault (core dumped)
but it also core dumps under Xubuntu. So far the people at the sane-devel mailing list hasn't
suggested anything helpful for getting xscanimage to work.
