Finally after not being able to use my scanner for over a year, SANE now
supports it! I scanned my very first pictures with it in b&w and
color! Everything seems to be going fine.

For people interested in this, here is how I did it:
first I loaded the module necessary to detect my SCSI card. It is the
card which was delivered standard with the scanner, with chipset:
dtct-436. So I can use it after typing as root:

modprobe g_NCR5380 ncr_addr=0x280 dtc_3181e=1

If this doesn't work for you, you have a different scsi card and maybe
this site can help you to detect yours:

In short this means that my scsi card is Mustek technology, but the
scanner technology is not, for that matter. After downloading the latest
sane-backend sources, which included support for the teco3 by Frank Zago
my scanner was detected (sane-backends >= 1.0.8 + patches). Here my

[eelco@eelco eelco]$ scanimage -L
device `teco3:/dev/sg2' is a Relisys Scorpio flatbed scanner

So the TRUST Imagery 2400SP looks like a nice mixture of several
different products to me.

I would hereby like to thank the SANE developers in general and Frank
Zago in particular for their fine work on developing scannerdrivers:
thanks to your driver my Linux Box now supports more of my hardware than
windows does! (Trust stopped updating the driver since windows 98)

Keep up the good work!
