[sane-devel] Unable to access minor data
Tue, 3 Dec 2002 18:48:20 +0000
This follows on from my libdll.a question some time ago. (Steve, that's the
"some debugging output" conversation)
I did a fresh install of Debian 3.0 (Woody) (gcc2.95.4) I applied patches to
kernel and to sane from http://viceo.orcon.net.nz/ as recommended, have been
trying to run sane-find-scanner and scanimage-L.
sane-find-scanner seems unable to find any usb scanner devices, while
scanimage -L gets as far as
[viceo] attach: opening usb /dev/usb/scanner0
and then gives the same message as sane-find-scanner, which is
scanner.c: open_scanner(0): Unable to access minor data
It looks as though sane can't connect to the scanner device. I don't think
it's a faulty connection as it is a new machine and I have tried both usb
ports, and there are lots of scanner devices under /dev/usb.
I can't seem to capture any output to file at the moment, so debugging info
is a bit thin on the ground, but I hope the above gives some insight into my
Any suggestions, anybody? Btw, the scanner is a Primax Colorado 19200 usb
