It's a mustek pp scanner, so you could try the mustek_pp backend...


gives the correct link as best hit... How to configure the backend is
also described in the man-page man sane-mustek_pp (you can also access
this information through the SANE homepage).

However, your scanner isn't supported yet (not even partially)

I do. I also have source codes from mustek...

Ah, we have a volunteer here! Btw, it's hard to write newbie guides, if
nobody reads them... ;-)

Well, stay tuned, sooner or later a driver for your scanner will pop up.
