OK, here we are:

A decent guide on KDE:

The relevant bit (RE: wallpaper) is chapter 3.2.2 / procedure 3.4 -- but you may find procedure 3.6 interesting as well.

Two things here: the "Open" button pops open the usual file selection dialogue, so you can have your wallpaper images stored wherever you like. The "Get New Wallpapers" button gives you the wallpaper selection @KDE-Look.org.

Your scanner: http://doc.ubuntu-fr.org/scanner_epson
Plusieurs paquets sont parfois nécessaires (comme par ex pour le scanner 4490 Photo: 3 paquets iscan-data_xxx.deb, iscan_xxx.deb et iscan-plugin-xxx.deb, ŕ installer dans cet ordre.)
OK, so... you need to download three packages (32 or 64 bit versions according to your OS) and install them in this order (by double clicking 'em):

Either 32 bit:
  1. iscan-data_1.13.0-1_all.deb
  2. iscan_2.28.1-3.ltdl7_i386.deb
  3. iscan-plugin-gt-x750_2.1.2-1_i386.deb

Or 64 bit:
  1. iscan-data_1.13.0-1_all.deb
  2. iscan_2.28.1-3.ltdl7_amd64.deb
  3. iscan-plugin-gt-x750_2.1.2-1_amd64.deb
Download sites (both seem to contain same versions):

From the KDE Manual Urmas linked to:

To use a custom picture, click the folder button beneath the list and select an image file from the file system.
That's what I was misssing, thank you Abarbs & Urmas. By going that route I can now add as many desktop pix as I like to the wallpaper folder.

In former Mint distros, and other Linux distros for that matter, using a desktop image was dead easy. Sometimes I get the impression that change is sometimes made just for the sake of change and isn't always a good thing. Oh well, I'm there now.

I've already downloaded all the Epson drivers they are in a folder in my Home directory. I'm using a 64 Bit version of Mint so shall select the three Urmas has listed and double click them all and see what occurs.

I do seem to recall though that maybe something else had to be installed first before installing drivers. Maybe not, perhaps I'm getting confused. Ok, let's give it a go.

After that, let's see if it will recognise a Microsoft Gamepad controller....
