Hi to the ex-sane.

I am finding the ammount of time I am spending trying to fix the canoscan  
FB630U backend is more than scanner functions are worth to me.

I am looking at buying a newer scanner with negative scan capability. (To  
replace my zero scan capability!)

Having been let down by canon's attitude towards linux, I was thinking of  
buying an Epson.

The Perfection 1670 and the 2400 look interesting. It appears that the  
former is not supported by sane and runs on a different chip set to other  
Perfection scanners so I'll stike that from the list.

Does anyone know if the 2400's neg scanning facility is supported under  
linux, it is about twice the price of a entry level scanner and I want it  
to work fully under linux if I am going to pay more for the device.

Thanks for any comments, one way or the other.

Regards, Peter.
