[sane-devel] RX500 MFP scanner
Sun, 11 Jan 2004 00:08:46 +0100
Could someone help me to get the scanner part of this device working?
I haven't got it working although I've got it recognised as a RX500.
The problem is that it somehow cannot switch the device on.
output of command "lsusb" is:
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 04b8:0807 Seiko Epson Corp.
output of "sane-find-scanner" is:
# No SCSI scanners found. If you expected something different, make
# you have loaded a SCSI driver for your SCSI adapter.
found USB scanner (vendor=0x04b8 [EPSON], product=0x0807 [USB2.0 MFP])
# Your USB scanner was (probably) detected. It may or may not be
# SANE. Try scanimage -L and read the backend's manpage.
# Scanners connected to the parallel port or other proprietary ports
# detected by this program.
output of scanimage -L
[epson] Unknown type R or level d, using B3
device `v4l:/dev/video0' is a Noname Terratec Cinergy 400 TV virtual
device `epson:libusb:001:002' is a Epson RX500 flatbed scanner
If I start xsane as a user I don't get to see the device, but as root it
gives me the option of using my TV-card or the RX500 device.
After selecting the RX500 xsane starts well. Now if I want to make a
scan or a prescan it generates a message that it cant switch on the
device. "wrong/false argument".
Seems I close but I haven't got enough administrator experience with
these type of devices.
Am I missing something simple here?
