Does the scanner work ok otherwise? I'm asking because it's labeled
"untested" in our lists.

XSane and other graphical frontends provide an easy way to change
brightness and gamma settings. If you want to keep using scanimage,
check if the avision backend provides an option like "brightness" in
the mode you use: scanimage -L. If it doesn't, but has an option
called "gamma-table" you can use that one. To generate the gamma
table, the program "gamma4scanimage" may be helpful.
