Henning Meier-Geinitz helped me in my prior inquiry at the end of november
when I asked about 1.0.8 and dropped backends. He suggested I run...
> make distclean ; ./configure ; make
Which helped. Let me back the story up to bring everyone else up to speed so
you know what I had to do to get where I am now.
I upgraded from Mandrake 8.2 to 9.0, and installed the sane rpms that shipped
with 9.0. My Microtek Scanmaker 3700 that had been working for quite some
time now under sane (thank you developers!) quit working. After all my
searching through the files, and an rpm query or two I discovered that the
1.0.8 sane that ships with Mandrake is screwy and missing many backends from
the sane backends package.
I uninstalled 1.0.8 and grabbed the older version from my 8.2 CDs. This did
not appear to change anything.
So I uninstalled that and grabbed the source for 1.0.8 and built it with no
success. did a make uninstall and grabbed 1.0.9 with no success, that
Microtek Backend simply wouldn't show up. I got the command info from
Henning, thought the old rpm installs might be messing with things, and so I
ran rpm --rebuilddb to clean up any links to files from now uninstalled
I then ran make distclean from the 1.0.8 directories, and then removed the
1.0.8 directories. Then I ran the full make distclean && ./configure && make
&& make install from the 1.0.9 directory. I then ran sane-find-scanner and
found the scanner, which doesn't identify by name but does show up now. I
then ran xsane as root, and the scanner works, but I cannot use it as a
regualr user. I cannot seem to find the scanner0 device anywhere, so I am not
sure where to look to allow joe blow users access to the device. So my
question after this long winded explaination is this. What and where do I
have to change permissions to allow access to regular users to the scanner?
BTW my offer from the past stands. Code is out, but I will donate graphics
work to this project. Just point me in the right direction and I am ready to
