I recently got an epson scanner, and I'm trying to get a sane frontend
to work with it.  I'm running Mandrake 9.0, gcc3.2, and
I've installed sane-backends-1.0.12 from the tarball. I had some trouble 
installing gtk, but I eventually was able to get it to install from the 
tar file. I've tried both sane-frontends-1.0.11 and iscan-1.5.2 and am getting
stuck with both. Any help would be greatly appreciated. 

When I try to configure sane-frontends-1.0.11 I get the error 
WARNING: GTK-0.99.13 or newer is needed for compiling the GUI
frontends. If you installed gtk as rpm make sure
you also installed gtk-devel.
===> GUIs will be deactivated
However, I know I have gtk+-2.2.4 because I compiled it from the

When I try iscan-1.5.2, I get errors trying to make the frontends
directory. My guess is that these errors have something to do with not 
finding the esmodule directory. An excerpt of the errors is below.

undefined reference to `Focus::operator new(unsigned)'
undefined reference to `Focus::Focus[in-charge](tagIMAGE_SETTING*, tagFILTER_SETTING*,unsigned char)'
undefined reference to `Focus::ReviseUSM(tagUSM_INFO*)'

Does anyone have any suggestions? If you need more information, let me
know. Thanks, Andy
