Hi Abel,

thanks for your help.

Now I tested the scanner with the original driver under Windows. ADF 
doesn't work neither in Windows nor in Linux. In Windows the error 
message suggest to check if ADF is empty or if the ADF cover is open, 
even if ADF is filled and ADF cover closed. Scanning via ADF produces 
this error message in Linux: "ADF is empty".
I also moved to another flat recently :-), maybe the HW was damaged 
during transport. As you know the scanner is very old. I will take a 
thorough look at the HW this weekend, maybe I'm able to fix it.
Anyway the original driver scans without complains if flatbed is chosen 
as source.

I shortened and attached it.
