When you compiled did you do a "./configure", "make" and a "make
install". The "make install" will probably have to be done as root as by
default it installs in /usr/local/lib/sane, which usually isn't
writeable by users.
If you did this and scanimage isn't finding your scanner, it's probably
because it's looking for the sane backend libraries in a different
place. On my machine (Fedora Core 4) the frontends expect the libraries
to be in /usr/lib/sane. You can get the libraries to install there by
redoing your compilation, but adding "--prefix=/usr" to configure. For
example, the new compilation commands would be:
Another thing that can happen, is that the usb interface gets confused.
Simply unplugging and plugging in the usb cable fixes this.
Hope this helps...
