 Hi I have a genius colorpage vivid 4xe scanner which used to work well with 
suse 10, since installing suse 11.0 I have not been able to install the 
scanner using yast , the scanner is recognised but will not work, if I try to 
edit it just hangs. Some messages below.
scanimage: open of device gt68xx:libusb:004:055 failed: Invalid argument

  # No SCSI scanners found. If you expected something different, make sure 
  # you have loaded a kernel SCSI driver for your SCSI adapter.
found USB scanner (vendor=0x0458, product=0x201a [600DPI USB Scanner], 
chip=GT-6816) at libusb:004:055
  # Your USB scanner was (probably) detected. It may or may not be supported 
  # SANE. Try scanimage -L and read the backend's manpage.

scanimage -L
device `gt68xx:libusb:004:117' is a Genius Colorpage Vivid4xe flatbed scanner

Tell me what to do next!!

  Thanks Peter.
