[sane-devel] Basic support for LiDE80 in genesys backend - works!

Hello everyone,

thanks to the work of Stef and others, LiDE80 scanner now works fine 
with my Ubuntu 12.04 system.

I added the ppa:rolfbensch/sane-git to my Synaptic sources list and 
installed or updated (to the 1.0.25-git20131217-precise0 version):


xsane gives full function (not all resolutions tested yet).

Only the colour profile seems to differ quite a lot from the one used by 
the Windows / original Canon software. Scanned pictures are shifted to 
green and dark.

In Xsane configuration (colour management), there is no scanner ICM 
profile loaded.

Somebody who can help with this (last?) issue ...?

Thanks again,
