Betreff: Re: [sane-devel] Canon 9000F

I don't know what I could do wrong. The problem exists with Opensuse
and (X)Ubuntu.

After compilation _nothing_ works as root.

A few hours later

found USB scanner (vendor=0x04a9 [Canon], product=0x1908 [CanoScan]) at

2 days later with my last compilation:

/usr/local/bin/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)."

There have been times, when scanimage -L worked after a few hours and
after 3 days. And I did nothing except waiting.
