[sane-devel] Prob with an optislim1200 (driver gt68xx)

Trying to get the above USB scanner to work.

sane-find-scanner tells me:

found USB scanner (vendor=0x07b3, product=0x0413 [600dpi USB Scanner], 
chip=GT-6816) at libusb:002:002

scanimage -L tells me:
 device `gt68xx:libusb:002:002' is a Plustek OpticSlim 1200 flatbed scanner

but when I try xsane I get:
(xsane:12066): Gtk-WARNING **: Unable to locate theme engine in 
module_path: "clearlooks",
[gt68xx] sane_open: power control failure: check power plug!
while an error window opens with:
"Failure to open device... Error during device I/O"

Yet the scanner is plugged in, the little green light is on, and the scanner 
used to work perfectly until I upgraded from Mandriva 2007.1 to 2008.1.

Any idea where to dig ?
