Just bought the Epson 2400 Photo scanner and it works great with xsane. Even 
the transparency/negative part works. However I am having a problem with 
negatives. I have tried all the available modes such as , standard, kodak and 
the rest but the results do not turn out right.

I have fiddled with the gamma's, brightness, contrast etc but they either 
(depending on the negative type) come out with a yellow tint, red tint and 
some others that are not quite right and no amount of adjusting gets them 
near to being correct.

Is it me, the scanner or sane?

This is on Mandrake 9.1 (latest updates), sane-backends-1.0.11-5mdk and

"Trying"? My contribution was much closer to a "feeble wave in the general 
direction of something that might lead you one step closer to a solution 
if you squint really hard and do all of the work."
