Hello everyone, (sorry I already posted on sane-standard but it was a wrong 

thank you to have this mailing list for sane which is a great software. My 
problem is following :

I just bought this scanner : Canon CanoScane n1240u, which is supported as far I 
know by sane, with the plustek backend.


When I do sane-find-scanner, I got the following output :

  # sane-find-scanner will now attempt to detect your scanner. If the
  # result is different from what you expected, first make sure your
  # scanner is powered up and properly connected to your computer.

  # No SCSI scanners found. If you expected something different, make sure that
  # you have loaded a kernel SCSI driver for your SCSI adapter.

found USB scanner (vendor=0x04a9, product=0x220e, chip=LM983x?) at 
  # Your USB scanner was (probably) detected. It may or may not be supported by
  # SANE. Try scanimage -L and read the backend's manpage.

  # Not checking for parallel port scanners.

  # Most Scanners connected to the parallel port or other proprietary ports
  # can't be detected by this program.
  # You may want to run this program as root to find all devices. Once you                                                                                                          
  # found the scanner devices, be sure to adjust access permissions as                                                                                                              
  # necessary.         

Unfortunately, scanimage doesn't work for this backend. Even the rotors are not 
doing a little noise, neither the light is powered. So, I would like to take 
advidce, cause I would really like make this scanner working.

Thank you very much, and thank you overall for sane.

See you later,
