I'm leaving this in for now, I am not sure there is a point 
to it since xsane doesn't seem to work with it and I have 
no need to scan from the tv tuner :-).

Thanks, that works now :-).  I was taking the -d info 
literally and specifying:

xsaneAGFA:SNAPSCAN1212U__2 (less .drc) from the 
~/.sane/xsane directory.

Just snapscan works fine :-).

Thanks very much and take care, V.
