Ouhm - ok. Then make sure hpusbscsi is not loaded. Maybe just "rm" it
from your system. The module is rather unstable and I have not even
tested if recent backends work with it one bit.

You _want_ to access your scanner from user-space using
libusb. Neither hpusbscsi nor scanner must be loaded in order to do

Yep. The unstable hpusbscsi driver got stuck. Do not use it.

Hm - I wonder how 1.0.13 and 1.0.1 get mixed here. I guess you have
two version installed in parallel, where the binary is from
e.g. /usr/local/bin and the library from /usr/lib ?!? (Henning?)

Make sure you get 1.0.13 for both. Best by uninstalling both version
and just installed the new one (e.g. from source). I usually recommend
to use ./configure --prefix=3D/usr in order to install them into the
location whre your distribution already placed the files.
