Hi, I have a cansocan lide35. I use it with a test program written by Pierre 
Willenbrock but it seems it is now supported in cvs. So I installed today's 

- lsusb sees my scanner: "Bus 001 Device 004: ID 04a9:2213 Canon, Inc. LiDE 
50/LiDE 35"

- sane-find-scanner sees it too "found USB scanner (vendor=0x04a9 [Canon], 
product=0x2213 [CanoScan], chip=GL841) at libusb:001:004"

- but scanimage --list-devices only show my tv card and my webcam:
"device `v4l:/dev/video1' is a Noname Logitech QuickCam Pro 4000 virtual 
device `v4l:/dev/video0' is a Noname BT878 video (Hauppauge (bt878)) virtual 

I'm on a 2.6 kernel, slackware current. scanimage -V gives "scanimage 
(sane-backends) 1.0.16-cvs; backend version 1.0.16"

I noticed the id of my scanner (as printed by sane-dind-scanner) was not 
in /etc/sane.d/genesys.conf, so I added it but it still does not work. 
Actually I noticed sane-backends and frontends packages do notinclude 
any /etc file so I might be left with old ones here.

Also, I found a doc that suggests I should do a modprobe scanner vendor=0x04a9 
product=0x2213 (values taken from sane-find-scanner) but the scanner module 
is not found and I understood from other docs I should not use it anyway?

What am I missing here?
