to be honest, i am not sure at all that the pfu stuff is going to look=20
like fujitsu, and i cant compile anything for you for osx. all my little=20
diagnostic programs are linux sg based. so, we either need to get someone=
else to modify and compile for us, or maybe give you directions on how to=
do the compile.
the modifications are pretty easy.
1. get the latest sane backend cvs source code from cvs
2. using a text editor, change the FUJITSU to PFU on line 3984
3. build and install sane
4. in the fujitsu.conf file, add a line that says:
SANE_DEBUG_FUJITSU=3D128 scanimage -L 2>pfu.log
and then mail the log to me.
sorry i cant be more helpful, but i need to get my hands on the scanner,=20
or you need to brush up on your compilation skills :)
