Using a live CD of the 20090409 daily build of Ubuntu 9.04 I used the xsane 0.996 application to run my Hewlett-Packard ScanJet 8250 scanner.
Scanning seemed to work okay except for the ADF.
When trying to use the ADF, the ADF begins to whir without drawing paper from the ADF tray and then an error message is generated by xsane that states 'Error during read: Scanner cover is open.'
The ADF hardware on my Hewlett-Packard ScanJet 8250 scanner sometimes functions inconsistently, but this xsane error occurs every time I have tried using the ADF.
I noticed some previous messages about a similar problem.
Is the ADF issue going to be addressed by some future version of SANE?
