Description Stefan Borschtel 2012-08-22 12:12:52 UTC
I noticed that the iscan-plugin for the flatbed-scanner from Epson named "Perfection V200" is missing and made my own ebuild based on the media-gfx/iscan-plugin-gt-f720. The ebuild works, but probably is not 100% bullet-proof (in other words needs validation). Especially there was one "DEPEND="-line that I left out, which I did not know what it is good for:


While making my own ebuild I also noticed, that there are other iscan-drivers available at
 So in my opinion it would make more sense to write a global iscan-plugin-ebuild with useflags for the various scanners. Unfortunately that's beyond my scope.

I'll attach my ebuild in any case.

Reproducible: Always

Stefan if you want to proxy-maintain this, I can help you.

There has been changes to the iscan plugins lately because AVASYS no longer provides the download directly, so please:

 - base yourself off media-gfx/iscan-plugin-gt-x820 (this is in turn based on an ebuild of mine);
 - you'll have to find the right iscan-registry command — check the spec of the RPM downloaded file;
 - link the URL of the downloaded RPM so I can put it on my dev.g.o page to fetch it;
 - make sure to tell me the name of the ebuild that it should have :)
Comment 3 Stefan Borschtel 2013-02-22 12:58:15 UTC
Sorry. I didn't fully understand you yet.

-"AVASYS no longer provides the download directly" - Ok, got that.

- next I shall take the ebuild-file from "media-gfx/iscan-plugin-gt-x820" as base for a new ebuild, right?

- about "finding the right iscan-registry command": Isn't that more or less still the one I am using in the ebuild attached to this "bugreport"?

What I didn't get is the part "check the spec of the RPM downloaded file" and "link the URL of the downloaded RPM". Where am I supposed to get the firmware-rpm?

As for the name of the ebuild: I created a local-portage-overlay named "/usr/local/portage/media-gfx/iscan-plugin-gt-f670/iscan-plugin-gt-f670-".

Did I get you right that you plan to host the firmware on your dev.g.o-page, but I shall still write the ebuild myself? That would be OK, although I am not firm at writing ebuild and ain't sure if I will do it right.

Sorry for the quick reply, but I am a bit short on time. I hope I will be able to check back soon.

Sorry yes the command in there is correct, I misread it. Yes please base yourself off x820 (the latest update).

Other than that, it shouldn't be too difficult to just tweak the right parameters ;) I'll set it up in Portage, but mostly I can't manage it alone because I don't have the hardware myself.
Comment 5 Stefan Borschtel 2013-02-24 16:28:41 UTC
I will try once I find the time to. Optional you could write a test-ebuild, attach it and I test it with the V200-scanner that I got at hand and modify it if needed. But don't feel pushed to do that, as I can try it on my own first.

Download Link and Format has changed: 

amd64? ( )
x86? ( )

iscan-data, iscan and iscan-plugin are all together in a rpm.tar.gz file now. So unpack results in a iscan-gt-f670-bundle-1.0.1.x64.rpm file. Unfortunately the ebuild does not work anymore.

tar -tzf iscan-gt-f670-bundle-1.0.1.x64.rpm.tar.gz
