[sane-devel] Fwd: xane timeout if do scan after preview
Mon, 27 Jan 2003 22:41:46 +0000
I've been experimenting some more. The problem is not when I scan after =
preview, it is if I scan after changing the scan area. My earlier experim=
had a small image on the flatbed, and so the scan area was being amended=20
automatically. I can scan as much as I want, but only if I avoid changing=
scan area. Not great.. Any clues?
(If this is a known problem in xsane 0.84, then I will do the upgrade, I =
don't want to do it only to find it makes no difference.)

I have previously had xsane etc working on my scanner, but had an acciden=
and have to do some reinstalling. (No backups - accident happened while
trying to get a cd writer working .... ironic really...) Now I cannot ge=
scanner working properly again.
It seems like a very precise problem, so I hope someone can easily pinpoi=
I do a scan preview, and this works well. Then I do an actual scan, and t=
fails. By "fails", I mean: the scanner jolts a bit and after a while I ge=
"usb_control/bulk_msg: timeout" in my console output. I have to restart l=
to get the scanner available again.
So I did some experiments:
(a) I can do as many scan previews, one after the other, as I like - they=
(b) I can do as many actual scans as I like, one after the other - they a=
(c) I can do an actual scan followed by a preview - they both work.
So it *only* when I do a preview followed by an actual.
I have said this is a new problem since I reinstalled things. That is not
quite true. It now happens 100% of the time; before it was a very occasio=
When I do sane-find-scanner, it sees my scanner, which is at /dev/usbscan=
(Oddly, if I do that as root, it finds my scanner twice: once as
/dev/usbscanner and once as /dev/usb/scanner0.)
The scanner is HP 2100C Scanjet
My kernel is 2.4.10-4GB
sane backends 1.0.8-5
xsane 0.84-8 (after this version there are a lot of dependencies that I d=
not have, and some are quite large to download, so I do not want to use =
if I can avoid it)
Any clues, please?
