Ok. But the timeout problem remains.

It really worked.

device `plustek:/dev/uscanner0' is a Epson Perfection 1260/Photo USB flatbed scanner

I'm doing my first scans now. All images are to dark and have a very low
contrast. Tuning the Brightnes-, Contrast- and Gamma-Parameters in Xsane
doesn't really help very much. I've merged my changes in plustek.conf back
into the one from the distfile, just to make sure it doesn't depend on
this, but that didn't help very much.

Anyone here with satisfying results from this scanner?
