[sane-devel] Re: [linux-usb-devel] Why could not Xsane find my USB scanner? Sane-find-scanner, scanimage, xscanimage all can.

You are using two installations of sane-backends. XSane uses the one
that came with your installation, scanimage uses the new one.

Remove the sane-backends RPM that came with your distribution. There
are a few other ways but basically you shouldn't have two versions of
SANE at the same time. Search the sane-devel mailing list archive for
more details.
