There seems to be a consensus that I must upgrade to
libsane 1.0.24. So I have downloaded
and run dpkg -i libsane_1.0.24-8_i386.deb.
But this gives me error messages, letting me know that
the install was not successful.
So, alas, I need further assistance. Is there a way
of removing _all_ sane stuff from my computer and
then downloading from sane-project.org a bunch of the
latest packages? This seems cumbersome, but what I
am doing is not successful.

I am guessing that SANE Standard Version 2.0(development)
is what is being referred to here. But when I click on this
I am told that this is currently under development.
I apologize for what must seem like stupidity. But sinee
there are front-ends, back-ends, tools, etc for a person
to cope with, perhaps I may be pardoned, and helped
