[sane-devel] Removed hpusbscsi and usbdevfs. xsane & scanimage
Fri, 27 Feb 2004 12:37:55 -0800
I finally figured out how to get rid of hpusbscsi and usbdevfs on Redhat
Fedora Core 1.
Renaming /hpusbscsi.o to hpusbscsi.obk did not work. It still loaded
got rid of the module.
I changed usbdevfs to usbfs in 2 places in /etc/rc.sysinit and rebooted
to remove the obsolete reference to usbdevfs.
I added /usr/local/lib to /etc/ld.so.conf and executed
ldconfig to enable xsane to find libsane.so.1
scanimage -L now gives:
device `avision:libusb:001:005' is a Hewlett-Packard ScanJet 7400c
scanimage >image.pnm scans a document, but the colors are wrong.
xsane 0.91 acquire preview fails: Failed to start scanner. Invalid
I am currently reviewing man scanimage to see what to do about the
colors. Is there a better place to find this information?
I was unable to find the cause of the xsane message in the xsane
documentation (where I also couldn't figure out how to get started) and
a Google search. What should I try next?
