Epson 4490 Scanner in linux

According to http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1432944&page=2 and the FAQ at http://download.ebz.epson.net/faq/linux/faq_ls_00002.html you need to install two packages to get it working in Linux:

iscan-data
iscan

but it didn't work for me until I also installed

iscan-plugin-gt-x750

Hope this helps someone.

search for 4490 at this page to get the download links:
