Trying to do a scan by pressing a button on the scanner.
Button works in the program "Image Scan! For Linux". But I can not get 
it to work with scanbd.

root at scaner:/# scanimage -L
device `epkowa:interpreter:001:010' is a Epson Perfection V37 flatbed 

This command does not expect to press a button on the scanner, but 
begins to continuously execute the script, which is written first in the 
file scanbd.conf.:

What is wrong?
