  Hi everyone,

I've got a problem with my canoscan 300 scsi scanner.
though it appears in sane-find-scanner output :
found SCSI scanner "CANON IX-03035B 1.01" at /dev/sg3
   # Your SCSI scanner was detected. It may or may not be supported by 
   # scanimage -L and read the backend's manpage.
whatever GUI I use (xsane, kooka, simple-scan...), these softwares don't 
detect it, the only scanner they detect is my webcam.
To solve the problem, I have to do by hand "ln -s /dev/scanner /dev/sg3" 
each time I plug my scanner in.
But that does not seem to be a very clean solution. Is that normal ?
