First of all, if any replies, please send me a cc as i am not a member
of this list.
Secondly, I had Sane working brilliantly under ubuntu 10.04 with the
backend version 1.0.16
now, after doing a completely fresh install of 12.04 i really cannot get
Sane to work.
here are some proofs.
scanimage (sane-backends) 1.0.24git; backend version 1.0.24
# 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
# you have loaded a kernel SCSI driver for your SCSI adapter.
found USB scanner (vendor=0x04a9 [Canon], product=0x1746 [MP280 series])
# Your USB scanner was (probably) detected. It may or may not be
# SANE. Try scanimage -L and read the backend's manpage.
sudo scanimage -L
No scanners were identified. If you were expecting something different,
check that the scanner is plugged in, turned on and detected by the
sane-find-scanner tool (if appropriate). Please read the documentation
which came with this software (README, FAQ, manpages).
Advices from http://www.sane-project.org/README.linux:
only contains the line
locate libsane.so.1 after sudo updatedb
Yesterday, I had for one moment the scanner working, then I installed
Xsane through the command line, which give me a lot options of which I
didnot know which one to choose. Since then, no success at all. Anyway,
now installing xsane will mean it will downgrade to 1.0.22.
If, one day, I will have SANE running, is there a way to install XSane
and a last question, quoting from the README.linux
"It may help to set a symbolic link /dev/scanner to the respective device if
automatic detection does not work."
how do I do that?
Thanks in advance.
