[sane-devel] epson 2450 firewire configuration
23 Sep 2002 23:08:52 +0100
I'm using cvs as of a few minutes ago. But nothing. :(
This is on debian unstable. With 2.4.17 with the low latency patch. The
firewire card is OHCI compatible with via chipset.
The scanner turns up fine in /proc/scsi/scsi and is found by
The only other scsi device I have isn't really scsi it's a ide cdwriter
which uses id-scsi so it's possible something isn't right in the kernel

device `v4l:/dev/video0' is a Noname mgacap-0 virtual device
which I can scan from fine
trying to specify the deivce gives the following error:
scanimage -d epson:/dev/sg0 --preview yes
scanimage: open of device epson:/dev/sg0 failed: Invalid argument
The only line in my epson.conf is
I have no idea what to try
The logs all look fine to my inexpert eye.(I even tried rebooting :( )
Any help is greatly appreciated.
