For "normal" use, Gernot's driver works fine for me. I didn't test
negative scans.

For instructions see my mail to this list:

[sane-devel] CanoScan 9000F code compilation

There is only 1 strange thing with my Suse and Ubuntu machines, 32bit
and 64bit. Wait a few hours with Ubuntu and wait 1 day with Suse to test
if the scanner is recognized.

After the compilation the scanner was not recognized and after a while
it was. Maybe there is a cronjob, which does the "rest".

To use the scanner as a user, you have to add


#in 1 line
ATTRS{idVendor}=="04a9", ATTRS{idProduct}=="1908",

Thanks Gernot for your great work and I hope one day, there will be an
option for line-art, as discussed privately.
