[sane-devel] help with Microtek 9800XL
Wed, 05 Nov 2003 19:01:02 +0000
Hi! I'm a newbie working with SANE, so please be patient.
I have a Microtek ScanMaker 9800XL scanner. I'm trying to make it work with
Linux. I have RedHat9, sane-backends-1.0.12-4, sane-frontends-1.0.11-3, and
xsane-0.91-1 installed. lsmod shows that the generic SCSI support is
sg 36524 0 (autoclean)
sr_mod 18136 0 (autoclean)
ide-scsi 12208 0
scsi_mod 107544 3 [sg sr_mod ide-scsi]
I know ScanMaker 9800XL is not on the list of SANE supported scanners, but
when I type "sane-find-scanner" I get:
# No SCSI scanners found. If you expected something different, make sure
# you have loaded a SCSI driver for your SCSI adapter.
found USB scanner (vendor=0x05da, product=0x20de) at libusb:002:002
# Your USB scanner was (probably) detected. It may or may not be supported
# SANE. Try scanimage -L and read the backend's manpage.
The scanner is connected to the USB port. I don't have a SCSI card.
However, when I try "scanimage -L" I get:
No scanners were identified. If you were expecting something different,
check that the scanner is plugged in, turned on and detected by the
sane-find-scanner tool (if appropriate). Please read the documentation
which came with this software (README, FAQ, manpages).
I searched the sane-devel list and Google for any information related to
this scanner working in Linux and I couldn't find anything relevant.
Is it possible to get this scanner working with Linux? If so, any help,
pointers, etc. would be greatly appreciated.
