Hi Louis,

The latest backend available in *buntu (I'm using Kubuntu 15.10 on my laptop) and the latest source in GIT do not support it - at least not just yet.  However, I received a patch to test against the backend (proper), and so I used that patch on the latest GIT source and compiled it.  I have been debugging it slowly in my spare time all week and have sent feedback as well as some debug messages from earlier today.

With the patched backend, everything works as it should except if trying to scan to the computer from the scanner (both USB and LAN modes).

Just to be sure - should I have cc'd the mailing list?

Kind Regards,
