[sane-devel] Mustek ScanExpress A3 USB 1200 Pro

I have the same scanner, and I am using it under Xsane-Ubuntu since 3
years. The developer Mustek it has a closed driver for linux:

Unfortunately this is very old, so it is not compatible with the latest
sane library.

I tried before to ask any programmer to help integrate it in official
libsane, bot without success.
I even tried to ask the developer to help us write an open driver, but I
got no answer from Mustek for it.

On 32 bit linux it is also possible to copy the upper
libsane_1.0.19-1_i386.deb package backend element in the configuration
folder of xsane. On 64 bit there is no solution found by me. But I am
interested, if exist one.

I have just one single problem: after install it does not recognize the
scanner, just in sudo mode. You must change the usb:001:011 folder
privileges to let you free acces.
I attached a screenshot with the scanning window of xsane with Mustek
ScanExpress A3 USB 1200 Pro.

So I am very interested about news on this theme. I wish this scanner to be
recognized and usable automatically in linux!
