It would really help if you wrote what you are actually trying to
achieve, which source code you use and what the errors are. And please
stay in the same thread (same subject) all the time you talk about the
same problem. That way it's easier to follow the discussions.

It's "sanei_usb_open()" (no captial letter).

If you include internal SANE header files, you should

If they were that buggy, they wouldn't work in SANE.

Anyway you are partially right: sanei_usb.h should include a header
that defines size_t.

This compile for me (in the backend directory, file called "hubba.c"):

#include "../include/sane/config.h"
#include <unistd.h>
#include "../include/sane/sanei_usb.h"

main ()

Try "gcc -I. hubba.c". And add some code actually :-)

Does anyone know which standard header file to include for size_t?
Shouldn't that be included in sanei_usb.h evene if a backend includes
it anyway?
