[sane-devel] Help :-)! 2.6.5 kernel/ Agfa SnapScan 1212u USB - I'm lost :-(.

Hi All and Thanks in advance!
I've been trying to resolve this for the past two days and
am turning to this list out of desperation, I'm completely
The scanner is fully supported according to the lists of
suppored devices on the sane site.
I'm not sure if the following is all the info needed, but as
noted I am thoroughly confused at this point.
The scanner is seen is /proc/bus/usb/devices:
T: Bus=03 Lev=01 Prnt=01 Port=01 Cnt=02 Dev#= 3 Spd=12
D: Ver= 1.00 Cls=ff(vend.) Sub=ff Prot=ff MxPS= 8 #Cfgs= 1
P: Vendor=06bd ProdID=2061 Rev= 1.1e
S: Product= Snapscan1212u_2
C:* #Ifs= 1 Cfg#= 1 Atr=40 MxPwr=100mA
I: If#= 0 Alt= 0 #EPs= 3 Cls=ff(vend.) Sub=ff Prot=ff
E: Ad=81(I) Atr=02(Bulk) MxPS= 64 Ivl=0ms
E: Ad=02(O) Atr=02(Bulk) MxPS= 8 Ivl=0ms
E: Ad=83(I) Atr=03(Int.) MxPS= 8 Ivl=16ms
The docs make reference to a needed kernel driver, but if
one exists in the kernel config I do not recognize it (per
above: I: [ ... ] Driver=(none).
I have emerged the sane back ends and xsane. I thought
perhaps I needed the following in /etc/sane.d/snapscan.conf
# Change to the fully qualified filename of your firmware
# firmware upload is needed by the scanner
[ ... ]
I'm still not sure if it is necessary or not.
Whatever is going on here, nothing in /dev gets created in
any form I would recognize as to having to do with a
All other USB devices are working fine (Joystick, usb
filesystem camera and A Palm Pilot USB cradle) and the
appropriate /dev entries exist.
I've read until my eyes ache :-) and googled on everything I
could think of that would help me resolve this issue. I'm
embarrased to admit that I came up with nothing that seems
to have been helpful, I have to have missed something there
somewhere, maybe multiple times :-(.
The only "progress" I get is that sane seems to pickup my tv
tuner card which xsane won't work with anyhow and it is
rather useless for scanning stuff this way :-).
Any help, suggestions or pointers *greatly* appreciated.
Thanks & take care, V.
