Ok, I did a fresh OS install and removed the existing sane packages and then
installed 1.0.19 using the example configure options you showed me. Now I do
have epjitsu.conf in my sane.d directory. However, now when I have the
scanner connected to the system and I run sane-find-scanner it doesn't find
it at all. I made sure I have libusb installed and also have copied the
firmware file to the detailed directory in the conf file. However, the
firmware file is slightly different. On my windows machine that I extracted
the file from, the file is named 300_0C00.nal rather than 300_0A00.nal. I am
going to search again to see if i can find the other file. Anything else you
can think of I may have done wrong or miss let me know.
