[sane-devel] Umax Astra 2000P problem
Sat, 08 Jun 2002 12:43:19 +0000 (GMT)
Hello, in the past I've been able to the Umax Astra 2000P running very
good under Linux using the umax_pp patch. I just installed the latest
Mandrake and downloaded the latest sane backends and umap_pp patch and
installed them. I am able to access the scanner correctly and everything
appears fine until I attempt to scan something.
When I scan with umax_pp -s, the colors appear off, but this image is
very distinguishable, everything the scans come out purple, but I assume
I can probably adjust this in a config file somewhere. The real issue is
when attempt to use xsane or scanimage to scan. The image is completely
trashed. I normally end up with an image of almost nothing except green
noise. When I attempt to adjust the images, sometimes I can see just a
hint of the image in the noise, but nothing anywhere close to what I
would call a distinguishable image. I do not believe it is a hardware
problem because I have been able to scan correctly under another OS (I
only used it to perform this test, I promise).
Anyone have any suggestions? I have samples I can send if any of you
wish to see them.
