Hello all,

I'm new to sane and I'm trying to get my Epson 2400 scanner
to work with my Redhat 8.0 linux.  And have been having
some problems. I've run sane-find-scanners and get the
found USB scanner (vendor=0x04b8 [EPSON], product=0x011b
[EPSON Scanner]) at libusb:001:002

however when I try and run scanimage -L with debug turned
on. I get:
[root@stitch bin]# scanimage -L
[sanei_debug] Setting debug level of epson to 255.

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).

So I'm trying to figure out how come my scanimage doesn't
seem to work..

thanks in advance.
