Thanks for your advice - I have managed to get there - almost..
I have modified the backend file, run the script and make.
However I have been stumped with your instructions..
2. copy the file backend/.libs/libsane-genesys.so.1.0.23 over top of
the copy provided by your distro, not sure where it is on a Mac.
Probably in /usr/local/lib?
Note that the file name will change- your current file might end in
.21 or .22, that's fine. We want the new one to have the same name. We
are replacing the old file. You can save the old one before you
overwrite it if you want.
In the newly modified SANE backends folder, under the same directory
downloads/sane-backends-git20110221/backend/.libs/... i have the
libdll.a libgenesys_la-genesys_gl841.o libsane-dll.so libsane.dylib
libdll.la libgenesys_la-genesys_gl843.o libsane-genesys.1.so
libdll_la-dll.o libgenesys_la-genesys_gl847.o libsane-genesys.
libgenesys.a libgenesys_la-genesys_low.o libsane-genesys.la
libgenesys.la libsane-dll.1.so libsane-genesys.lai
libgenesys_la-genesys.o libsane-dll.1.so.dSYM libsane-genesys.so
libgenesys_la-genesys_gl124.o libsane-dll.la libsane.1.dylib
libgenesys_la-genesys_gl646.o libsane-dll.lai libsane.1.dylib.dSYM
is the file here - named differently? - or am i on the wrong page? or
has something not worked?
in the system folder where I need to copy over the file..
/usr/local/lib/sane i have the file" libsane-genesys.1.0.21.so"
this IS(?) the file i need to replace - correct?
and i need to re-name the new file to match this file? or i can just
leave the file name that copies across?
Thanks for your help..
