Hi everybody,

I am running an office with heavy paperwork on Linux Mint 13 and 
encounter a problem with my two scanners.

Since gscan2pdf does not work properly (the Epson is not recognized 
correctly) I have discussed this with Jeffrey Ratcliffe.

Astonishing is the fact that both scanners (the other is a Brother) run 
perfectly with Xsane.

Jeff proposed to pst the last message here, as he thinks there is a 
libsane problem.

Here is the message:

Sorry the delay in replying.

This looks to me like a libsane problem, and I don't understand why
things work with xsane.

Please report the above to the sane mailing list

Someone with more insight than me might have an idea what is going on.
