When I had my Epson Artisan 810, I could not get the scanner part to work. Printer driver worked fine, but not the scanner. When Ubuntu 12.04LTS came out, there was an update to Xsane that "fixed the issue" since before upgrading to 12.04 the Xsane [or other scanner packages] did not work. I have been using a Canon print/scan/copy since Jan 9th 2013, so I did not need to deal with the Epson, except for the FAX option. I bought a Canon print/scan/copy/fax printer Feb 18th 2014 after the scanner part of the Epson died.

SO I have not had to deal with any Epson Linux driver sites for a few years.

I had great difficulty finding workable driver for my Epson print/scan/copy/fax device, since Epson did not support Linux [Ubuntu]. It took a OS update before I could get the scanning to work properly. The key here is where did you get the driver for the scanner and how well can other packages use it? Yes, you do seem to have an issue that seems to associate the Epson scanner with the video device in the config files.

Go to:

Drivers for your scanner, including network drivers are found here, in .deb format for your Ubuntu system. (They're also there in .rpm format and others.) After you select one of the drivers, it will ask you to accept some bs and then it will go to the download. Pick the one(s) you need and go.

If you're coming from Google instead of the url I show above, you should put in Epson printer (or scanner) driver, Linux. Then select Epson Linux Download Center, NOT Avast. (Avast got out of that business several years ago.)

The printer drivers work fine also, if you need them.
