Hi sane-devel at lists.alioth.debian.org

I have a USB scanner Epson Perfection 1260 (not a printer combo)
half working, using FreeBSD current (3 week old src/ & current
ports/packages) fresh installed sane back end, front end & xsane.

Example scans here from xsane & scanimage & xscanimage:
all with 2 background colours: yellow on left half of page, red on right.

shows a choice of 2/3 drivers:J epson2 & sane-plustek [& epkowa?]
I wasn't sure how to specify driver,
Couldn't select driver from interactive xsane, nor from 
/usr/local/etc/sane.d/saned.conf (net inter host stuff), so I tried:

xscanimage plustek:/dev/ugen1.5 # fails to open
xscanimage plustek:/dev/usb/1.5.0 # fails to open
setenv SANE_DEFAULT_DEVICE "plustek:/dev/ugen1.5" ; xsane	# striped
setenv SANE_DEFAULT_DEVICE "epson2:/dev/ugen1.5" ; xsane	# striped
setenv SANE_DEFAULT_DEVICE "epkowa:/dev/ugen1.5" ; xsane	# striped

I've done mv ~/.[a-zA-Z]* X/ ; cd X 
mv .[xX]* ~/	# for xauth
# so its nothing in old inherited .sane/ or similar dor file

Have I missed something ? Or is my scanner defective ?
