Scanner Epson XP-6105 won't work

Hi all, i have tried everything but this scanner won’t work. Simple-scan don’t see it. Work’s only with imagiscan utsushi but I don’t like the GUI and it’s not possible to scan many sheets in sequence. I wanna use simple scan.
Anyway, some info…

sane-find-scanner will now attempt to detect your scanner. If the

result is different from what you expected, first make sure your

scanner is powered up and properly connected to your computer.

No SCSI scanners found. If you expected something different, make sure that

you have loaded a kernel SCSI driver for your SCSI adapter.

Your USB scanner was (probably) detected. It may or may not be supported by

SANE. Try scanimage -L and read the backend’s manpage.

Not checking for parallel port scanners.

Most Scanners connected to the parallel port or other proprietary ports

can’t be detected by this program.

You may want to run this program as root to find all devices. Once you

found the scanner devices, be sure to adjust access permissions as

necessary.

scanimage -L

No scanners were identified. If you were expecting something different,
check that the scanner is plugged in, turned on and detected by the
sane-find-scanner tool (if appropriate). Please read the documentation
which came with this software (README, FAQ, manpages).

dll.conf - Configuration file for the SANE dynamic backend loader

Backends can also be enabled by configuration snippets under the dll.d/

directory – third party backends can drop their configuration file in

this in this directory, named after the backend.

The next line enables the network backend; comment it out if you don’t

need to use a remote SANE scanner over the network – see sane-net(5)

and saned(8) for details.

epson2.conf

here are some examples for how to configure the EPSON2 backend

SCSI

scsi EPSON

for the GT-6500:

#scsi “EPSON SC”

Parallel port

#pio 0x278
#pio 0x378
#pio 0x3BC

USB

usb

For libusb support for unknown scanners use the following command

usb

e.g.:

usb 0x4b8 0x110

epkowa.conf – sample configuration for the EPKOWA SANE backend

Copyright © 2004, 2008, 2009 Olaf Meeuwissen

See sane-epkowa(5), sane-usb(5) and sane-scsi(5) for details.

Detect all devices supported by the backend.

If you don’t have a SCSI device, you can comment out the “scsi”

keyword. Similarly for the other keywords.

usb
scsi

For any USB scanner not known to the backend (yet), you may, at your

own peril(!!), force the backend to recognise and use it via libusb.

You can do so by the following configuration command:

usb

SEIKO EPSON’s USB vendor ID is ‘0x04b8’ (without quotes). In order

to find the USB product ID, use lsusb(1).

A sample configuration for the Epson Perfection 1650 (Epson GT-8200),

which has a product ID of 0x0110, would look as follows:

#usb 0x04b8 0x0110

For SCSI devices not detected, you can add an entry like:

scsi EPSON GT-20000

where the GT-20000 bit corresponds to the SCSI model information as

shown in the output of dmesg(1) or in the /var/log/kern.log file.

Network attached devices may be made to work by first installing the

(non-free) iscan-network-nt package and then adding configuration lines

as per information below.

For each network attached device, you must add an entry as follows:

net <IP-address|hostname> [port-number]

Ask your network administrator for the device’s IP address or check

for yourself on the panel (if it has one). The port-number is very

optional and defaults to 1865.

Note that network attached devices are not queried unless configured

in this file.

Examples:

#net 192.16.136.2 1865
#net 10.0.0.1
#net scanner.mydomain.com

Some backend behaviour can be customized by using the option keyword

followed by an option name, as shown below.

option

Currently available options:

Makes the automatic document feeder the default document source

#option prefer-adf

Thanks in advance

Solved the problem
The scanner support the AirPrint protocol, you can just install ipp-usb

sudo pacman -S ipp-usb

sudo systemctl enable --now ipp-usb.service
