[sane-devel] UMAX 1200S on NetBSD
10 Sep 2003 08:18:54 -0400
I have been using sane on FreeBSD for a long time.
I converted my machine to NetBSD, and was unable to find the scanner,
even when doing 'xscanimage /dev/ss0'
When I made a link from /dev/scanner to /dev/ss0, all was ok. So
while I am now functional, it seems that xscanimage cannot really cope
with being given the device name on the command line.
gory details if anyone cares:
I installed sane from NetBSD pkgsrc:
sane-backends-1.0.12 API for access to scanners, digitals camera, frame grabbers etc.
sane-frontends-1.0.11nb1 Frontends for access to scanners, digitals camera, frame grabbers etc
I have an Adaptec 2940 controller and a UMAX 1200S SCSI scanner.
ahc0 at pci0 dev 16 function 0
ahc0: interrupting at irq 10
ahc0: aic7860 Single Channel A, SCSI Id=7, 3/255 SCBs
scsibus0 at ahc0: 8 targets, 8 luns per target
ss0 at scsibus0 target 5 lun 0: <UMAX, Astra 1200S, V2.9> SCSI2 6/scanner fixed
ss0: async, 8-bit transfers
sane-find-scanner seems to work.
found SCSI scanner "UMAX Astra 1200S V2.9" at /dev/ss0
# Your SCSI scanner was detected. It may or may not be supported by SANE. Try
# scanimage -L and read the backend's manpage.
# No USB scanners found. If you expected something different, make sure that
# you have loaded a driver for your USB host controller and have installed a
# kernel scanner module.
# Scanners connected to the parallel port or other proprietary ports can't be
# detected by this program.
# You may want to run this program as root to find all devices. Once you
# found the scanner devices, be sure to adjust access permissions as
> scanimage -L
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 did try putting /dev/ss0 in /usr/pkg/etc/sane.d/pint.conf, after
