Hi Roger,

It looks like the Blackwidow scanner has had its SCSI vendor and product ID
changed. You can get the artec backend to 'pretend' that a scanner it finds
has a different vendor/product ID - see the sane-artec man page. Basically,
you need to add the following lines to artec.conf just before the device
line that applies to your scanner:

vendor ULTIMA
model AT12

You might want to add the device name that corresponds to your scanner.

Hope this helps

Tried it, but get "invalid argument" as an error.

find-scanner discovers it as " Flatbed Scanner 3.20" but
scanimage/xscanimage/xsane say there are no scanners!

Many Thanks
