[sane-devel] My iscan gui problems

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.

Cheers, Gene
