i've been trying to get my scanner to work with my slackware 8.1 system, but 
it doesn't seem to be fuctioning properly. slackware 8.1 includes sane 
packages 1.0.8 and xsane pages 0.86 and they seem to work fine using the usb 
kernel method because i can locate the scanner with sane-find-scanner. the 
compilation of testtool caused errors except when using make USB=libusb and 
even though the program would compile it would always segfault when trying 
to run it. i removed all packages from my system and just compiled 
sane-backend and sane-front end from source without any problems. once 
again, sane-find-scanner detected my scanner. i compiled sane-frontends 
without a program and noticed that it had created a gimp plugin for me. i 
opened gimp to see if the "acquire" option had the scanner listed, but it 
did not. i tried running xscanimage from terminal but that also segfaulted. 
it seems every program related to sane segfaults. what can i do to fix 
this?? sane seems to be working fine.
