You can also try to get around the USB-scanner module and work directly
with libusb. This sometimes works better. Make sure that the module
scanner is not loaded. Rename the object
/lib/modules/2.4*/kernel/drivers/usb/scanner.o to scanner.o_save
Then connect the scanner with your machine. It should be recognized. Try
