I downloaded sane-backends-1.0.18.tar.gz, and from


I downloaded plustek-usb-0.51.14.tar.gz, then followed the steps described in
the plustek documentation: 

Change to your home directory and create a sane directory
cd ~
mkdir sane

unpack your sane tar-ball (here "sane-backends-1.0.9.tar.gz")
to this "sane" directory

cd sane
tar xvzf /tmp/sane-backends-1.0.9.tar.gz

Now unpack your plustek-sane tarball (here "plustek-sane-0.45-1.tar.gz")
to the backends directory:

cd sane-backends-1.0.9
tar xvzf /tmp/plustek-sane-0.45-1.tar.gz

Now do the ./configure step...
Especially for SuSE with a preinstalled SANE-RPM:
./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --mandir=/usr/share/man --infodir=/usr/share/info

Then do the make step and after that as root user perform the make install

That's all!

. Then I did `# sane-find-scanner' and got the output:

 found USB scanner (vendor=0x04a9 [Canon], product=0x2220 [CanoScan], chip=LM9832/3) at libusb:001:002

. Then I added to plustek.conf the following lines:

 [usb] 0x04a9 0x2220
 device libusb:001:002

, but still `# scanimage -h' gives the following:

 scanimage: no SANE devices found

. I'm lost here, please a help...
