[sane-devel] How to download files for Artec e+48u scanner?
Thu, 11 Dec 2003 19:53:37 +1300
I'm running Debian Woody and have a Artec e+ 48u scanner. I've read all the
manuals and got to the point where sane-find-scanner works and returns the
right vendor/product id's.
The help file sane-artec_eplus48u.5.html says that I need
Artec48.usb off the CD that came with the driver (it doesn't say where to
put it). I got that one and put it in /etc/sane.d/ where the sane
*.conf files seem to be. I have no idea if that's the right place.
Plus I need:
I don't seem to have any sane subdirectory in /usr/local/lib, nor
do I have a /usr/local/etc/
I do have a /etc/sane/d/ where many conf files are (but not the Artec one).
I conclude that Debian Woody probably missed out on the Artec 48u files and
needs an update. However, following the link from the Sane site
(www.sane-project.org/source.html) to Debian Woody
http://people.debian.org/~aurel32/sane.html seems not to work; following the
link to the Sid sources at
http://packages.debian.org/unstable/libs/libsane.html gets me "packages
.debian.org is down at the moment" (yes I know why).
Anyway, I don't really want to download a *huge* package from debian.org (if
and when it ever starts working again) just to get two files.
Can anyone help with the following questions:
Is there anywhere I can download just the e+48u libsane and conf files from?
Where (in a Debian system) should those files go?
Where should the Artec48.usb file off the CD go?
