Hi Bryan,

I'm using that scanner too on Linux Ubuntu Jaunty, but having a couple of

- some color (cyan/magenta) bars over the output: if you scan things on a
gray scale it works great, but not when using color. Is this happening to
you too?

- ADF not working: the device gets blocked and need to restart it to make
it usable.

Our libsane is 1.0.19-23 version. XSane is the frontend but problems arise
on anothers too.

I suppose backend on CVS you used is not on ubuntu repo.

Any help will be appreciated.

Wow that did the trick.  That was a lot easier than I had expected.

Now that I have things working is there a battery of tests that I can  run
to maybe update the status from unsupported for others reference?

To chime in on the version control issue that was discussed in a few 
earlier messages, I personally am very fond of git.  It has a bit of a 
learning curve since conceptually it is different from most other  version
control systems, but it is also fast and powerful.  I have used  it now
for several projects and the more I use it the more powerful I  see that
it is.  Just my $0.02.

version of SANE and see if you scanner already just works (tm). Yours,
