I've got a problem with the 1.0.24 genesys backend. I need to use 1.0.24 
since the 5 front panel buttons of my CanScan LidE 210 are not fully 
supported in earlier versions.

When I try to scan in tiff format, this it what happens:

| tm at dungeonmaster:~ $ scanimage --format=tiff > /tmp/test.tiff
| scanimage: unrecognized option '--format=tiff'

It works with earlier versions of sane (tested with 1.0.22 and 1.0.23).

I use Kubuntu Linux 12.04 Precise Pangolin x86_64 and the 1.0.24git 
packages from this ppa:

scanimage --format=tiff works with the oroginal packages from the distro 
(Version 1.0.22-7ubuntu1) and from this ppa:
http://ppa.launchpad.net/nathan-renniewaldock/sane/ubuntu/ (Version 

I tried building from the daily 1.0.24 snapshot sources myself, it gives 
the same results:

| tm at dungeonmaster:~ $ scanimage --format=tiff > /tmp/test.tiff
| scanimage: unrecognized option '--format=tiff'

Perhaps someone can shed some light on this. And BTW, there are some 
more long options that don't work any longer:
--icc-profile, --batch-* 

TIA for any help
