I am running a Scanmaker 4800 with the sm3840 driver and I've been able
to get almost everything working correctly except the color depth. I
need to be able to do black and white scans, not merely grayscale. I
know the scanner is capable of handling 1-bit color depth which is also
supported by Kooka, but I don't even get the opportunity to select it. I
know this is not a problem in Kooka, because XSane and Quiteinsane also
have the problem.
Is there some configuration file that needs to be setup to allow this

'First they came for the Communists, but I was not a Communist, so I
said nothing. Then they came for the Social Democrats, but I was not a
Social Democrat, so I did nothing. Then came the trade unionists, but I
was not a trade unionist. And then they came for the Jews, but I was not
a Jew, so I did little. Then when they came for me, there was no one
left to stand up for me.' (Martin Niemöller)
