I posted right after subscribing but got a mail saying my message was held
for approval because this was a post by a non-member. I don't
understand this because I sent only after I received my membership approval.

Anyway, my first scan using scanimage (but also xscanimage) resulted in a
totally blurred picture.

Here some datapoints:

# scanimage -L
device `mustek:/dev/scanner' is a Mustek MFS-12000SP flatbed scanner

I'm wondering why this is 12000SP. Actually the scanner is a 1200SP.

The picture I obtained using scanimage >data and converting the data to a .jpg
can be found under


I may be missing something important but my approach was quite straigt
forward. I didn't find any configuration file though. I would have expected 
that the make install would advise me what to do if I had to edit
a configuration file.

Excuses for using a developer list for a probably simple user question
but I didn't find a sane-users list.
