When I upgraded from SuSE 8.2 to SuSE 9.1 I lost the ability to use my HP scanjet 3300C scanner.  It was recommended that I use sane-backends-1.0.14.tar.gz.  I successfully downloaded the file and did these steps as per the README:



make install

The first time I ran the YAST scanner config tool, it didn't seem to pick up any new devices so I did this:

rpm -e sane xsane kdegraphics3-scan

to remove the existing sane install

and then did

make install to install the sane files from the compiled source.

Now, when I run YAST to configure my scanner it says that SANE is not installed.  Can someone tell me where I'm going wrong?
