I can confirm it now works with my Genius ColorPage Vivid 3XE (USB)
using libusb 0.1.6 and sane-backends 1.0.12 (on Redhat 9, hand-rolled
RPM, current RH errata kernel)
(This is the first time I've actually got this scanner working under
Linux - the Windows scanning app supplied is horrible, sane/xsane are
streets ahead. Thanks again!)
