Sat, 16 Aug 2003 17:28:57 +0200
Your scanner needs its firmware to be loaded before you can scan. If you
had a Windows session before your Linux session this had be done
already, but if you start with Linux, Linux must do it. See the comments
in the file /etc/sane.d/snapscan.conf or enter the command
for more information.
