The package iscan should be installed but it contains proprietary binary-only i386-only software.Therefore it is only available for i386-compatible architectures.Some scanners are also supported by another driver.If you really want to install iscan,you must do it manually. Iscan is only available as 32-bit software.On AMD 64-bit(x86_64) systems the scanner driver in the iscan package works only if also the scanning user frontend is 32-bit software.You can use the special frontend /usr/bin/iscan for Epson scanners which is included in the iscan package.If you like to use a standard frontend like scanimage,xscanimage,xsane,or kooka,you must explicitly install the 32-bit package version (i.e.get the package from the right media or repository)..

Hello Macraw,

It seems that you are encountering problems to your scanner. To make it more understandable, it said that your scanner is incompatible to your Computer. Inscan is compatible for 32-bit operating systems, so it means that your computer is running 64-bit. The problem today is that, most of the softwares released are set to 32-bit system but contrast to hardware stuffs like CPU and Hard disks are more often 64-bit so they are not meeting their expectations to run the program smoothly. The solution at least you can do is to know the specification of your Computer, know the software's capability and requirements to avoid such problems.

I hope this helps.
