Hi all,

This is to let you know that I managed to install and properly scan a
color image with a UMAX Astra 2000U USB scanner, using the umax1220u
backend driver, on my Gentoo linux machine (kernel 2.6.16-suspend2-r8).
As far as I can tell, the image was properly scanned using the
xscanimage frontend GUI application, including preview and preview-based
boundary definition.

I would suggest that (unless contradicting evidence is known) the
support level for this device can be raised above "minimal". Or, I'd be
happy to conduct further tests to make sure it really works as expected.

(Note that I'm not subscribed to the list, please reply to my e-mail
address as well.)
