Results of troubleshooting so far:
1. backends-1.0.15 as released--vertical color bars in preview and
image rotated 45 degrees on scan
2. backends-1.0.15 with latest posted build of avision--scanner bar
does not move
3. backends-1.0.14 will not find scanner (libusb vs hpusbscsi?)
4. scanner works with vuescan
I've researched the documentation, mailing lists and forums and have
tried every trouble shooting technique that I think applies. The
results are the same. I've gone as far as I can with my current
knowlege level. I am in need of help.
I would be more than happy to post a "debug" log, or sections of it, if
anyone would ask for it.
