	you can get a source archive patched with an experimental version of the 
lexmark backend at http://stef.dev.free.fr/sane/lexmark . It should be able 
to detect your scanner and do 75 dpi color scans.

	BTW, Fred, if it happens you have the time needed to record the usbsnoop 
windows log of a preview right after plug-in your scanner. I'd be very 
grateful if you send me this log. The X1185/X1190 have the same usb id than 
your model but work slightly differently. I have to find how to differentiate 
them from your model.
