[sane-devel] My iscan gui problems
Thu, 25 Dec 2003 17:36:27 -0500
Some of you may recall that I've made the statement about never having
seen the iscan gui because the compiler bails out while making it.
I've been playing the the beta 2.6 kernel releases and yesterday I
built and installed the 2.6.0-mm1 version.
Something in a message from Olaf at epkowa triggered me into trying to
compile it again, and the compile *didn't* bail out. I'd also tried
to install the rpm, but rpm ignored the --prefix= and put it all in
the wrong place, so I pulled it back out and did a make install in
the tarball tree.
Then I re-enabled it in dll.conf and typed iscan in a cli. Instead of
a can't talk to scanner message, it brought up a requester showing
the plustek backend. Clicking on that got me the usual can't talk
message, so a repeat, but clicking on the plustek also showed me the
epkowa backend as a choice, so I selected that and clicked ok.
Voila! Iscan works. I cannot print thru cups at scale with it yet,
as it tiles a magazine cover over 9 sheets of paper, and the lack of
the histogram displays makes it more difficult to get a proper
balance, but it works. That in itself is a major step forward here.
