install epson L355 scanner driver on debian

Short and painless:

wget https://download2.ebz.epson.net/iscan/general/deb/x64/iscan-bundle-1.0.0.x64.deb.tar.gz
tar -xf iscan-bundle-1.0.0.x64.deb.tar.gz
sudo bash iscan-bundle-1.0.0.x64.deb/install.sh

grep epkowa /etc/sane.d/dll.conf \
    || sudo bash -c 'echo epkowa >> /etc/sane.d/dll.conf'

# you printer is very like different form
# so adjust accordingly
grep 'net 192\.168\.123\.4' /etc/sane.d/epkowa.conf \
    || sudo bash -c "echo 'net' >> /etc/sane.d/epkowa.conf"

This of course is a security nightmare so don't forget to do this only in a VM or better yet on dedicated hardware with no sensitive data / network access.
