I just tested 41_99 of this patch and its not too bad, Gerhard
Jaeger can supply it, or a link to its location. You'll need to
either add an alias definition to your modules.conf file, or
compile the identity stuff into the kernels drivers/usb/scanner.h
and rebuild the kernel. As the usb stuff is an ongoing project
in the kernel tree, I can't verify it will work with your
hardware, or with a kernel less than 2.4.17, which is what I'm
You'll also need to diddle permissions on /dev/usb/scanner0, else
root is the only one that can run it. 0666 seems to be ok.
If you can program a bit, welcome to the group. Gerhard Jaeger
is the co-ordinator for this particular branch/patch. I'm just a
twiddler and tester who once thought he could program back when
computers still had 8 bit busses. :-)
