[sane-devel] Avision: Scanner Light Does Not Move--Garbage in Preview Window
Mon, 07 Mar 2005 06:04:16 -0600
I did all of this on 20050306. I have a HP Scanjet 5370C (Avision).
Compiled and installed libusb-0.1.10a, sane-backends-1.0.15 and
sane-frontends-1.0.13. All were release versions. For sane-backends I
used avision.c, avision.h, avision.conf, sanei_usb.c and sanei_usb.h
from http://svn.exactcode.de/sane-avision/trunk/. In everything I used
<./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc. (Except maybe I didn't
set sysconfdir for libusb--could this be the problem?)
In xscanimage and xsane, I get "garbage" in the preview window when I
select "Acquire Preview." I also noticed that in all cases the scanner
light comes on, travels a very small distance and then turns off. The
scanner sounds normal.
I sure would appreciate any ideas on this.
By the way, I also am having problems with permissions. The scanner is
not recognized unless I am "root." I have
/etc/hotplug/usb/libusbscanner with "ugo=x". I noticed that the
arguments are commented:
Aditionally, these lines are also commented:
# if [ "$ACTION" = "add" -a "$TYPE" = "usb" ]; then
# chown root:scanner "$DEVICE"
# chmod 0660 "$DEVICE"
I'm running a Mandrake version of the 22.214.171.124 kernel. Do I need to
uncomment these lines. Before I installed the new sane and libusb I
didn't have a permission problem--I had others <BG>
Once again I will appreciate any and all help.
