Hi Hy,

I have the same scanner and am also trying to make it work.  I dug around
in the source, and I think it would take a bit of modification of the
genesys driver etc... to make it work (not much).  I sent out an e-mail to
the developers who are listed as maintainers of the LiDE drivers, and
didn't hear back from them.  I'm thinking of reaching out again to try and
poke them into either helping to fix it, or pointing me in the right

Basically it seems like the definitions for each of the scanners are
hardcoded into the drivers, I'm sure, as you implied, that the LiDE 120 is
very similar to the 110 at least, or maybe even the 200.  I had a look
around and it would be copying a bunch of sections and changing the device
identifications...  I had e-mailed the developers to check that I knew
every file that would need to be changed, but like I said, never heard back
from them.

All the best,
