I have troubles to use my Genius Vivid-3xe scanner... sane recognizes it, 
but applications don't use it... my usb configuration is working properly 
since I took pictures with my webcam... I did chmod rwxrwxrwx 
/dev/usb/scanner* since only root had access to the devices... my usb driver 
is usb-uhcii.o (the other one uhci.o worked fine but my vmware did not work 
with it, so I changed to usb-uhci.o instead but camera and vmware continued 
working fine...


reno@voodoo:~$ sane-config --version

reno@voodoo:~$ sane-find-scanner
found USB scanner (vendor=0x0458, product=0x2017) at libusb:001:004 (3xe)
found USB scanner (vendor=0x046d, product=0x0840) at libusb:001:002 (webcam)

reno@voodoo:~$ scanimage -L
device `gt68xx:/dev/usb/scanner0' is a Genius Colorpage Vivid3xe flatbed 

but when running xsane or kooka they say scanner is not round... what could 
be the problem? I created this script to load the scanner.o module

modprobe scanner vendor=0x0458 product=0x2017

got vendor and product from KDE Info Center (USB devices)...

what could be wrong?

thanx for your help! :)
