You can't imagine how I hate this sentence ;-)

Yes, I can imagine...

You can also try and make the backend a kernel module - download the latest
CVS snapshot, unpack the sources and go to 
call as root usere MakeModule.sh script to compile install and load the ptdrv
module - then after successful loading, you should change the plustek_pp.conf
Building the kernel module needs the kernel-sources proberly installed and
configured on your box...
I'm just curious, if the module get's loaded - as it's the same code, maybe I 
made a mistake when putting something to user space....
