I'm trying to get to work scanner DocketPORT 468.
I already know it is not supported and I have found no discussions related,
however I'm giving it a try as the  genesys  backend  provides  support for
scanners based on the Genesys Logic GL646 and GL841 chips and I have read in
a discussion that GL842 is essentially the same as the GL841.

My OS is: Linux version 2.6.35-28-generic (buildd at rothera) (gcc version
4.4.5 (Ubuntu/Linaro 4.4.4-14ubuntu5) )

I have (sane-backends) 1.0.21; backend version 1.0.21.

When connecting the scanner I get:

[ 3960.456090] usb 2-5: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address

:sane-find-scanner -v
found USB scanner (vendor=0x1dcc [Document Capture Technologies Inc.],
product=0x4817 [SimpleScan], chip=GL842) at libusb:002:008

:scanimage -V
scanimage (sane-backends) 1.0.21; backend version 1.0.21


scanimage -L
No scanners were identified.

Any suggestions? Should I just forget about it and look for another scanner?

Thanks and regards
Enma :)
