Hi all,

Can Epson Perfection V370 or V800 photo scanner scan film negative on Linux platform?

I learned a bitter lesson before on using my old Epson Perfection 3490 photo scanner (The scanner is still working). It could scan photos without problem on Linux platform running both Simple Scan and Xsane. However it couldn't scan film negatives running Xsane.

Epson Perfection 3490 photo scanner can scan both photos and film negatives on MS Windows platform with the software supplied by Epson.

I'm now prepared to replace this old scanner with either Epson Perfection V370 or V800 photo scanner. Before doing so I'm now searching around for information whether they work on Linux platform avoiding falling into the same pitfall. The scanner will be mainly used for scanning film negatives.

Please shed me some light. Thanks in advance.

Or suggestion for other bands of scanner will be welcome.

Regards
satimis
