No problem.  It's the summer holidays anyways.

Hmm, I prefer you keep mailing to the list.  Others may have the same
problem as you and other knowledgeable people may chime in while I'm
busy with other stuff.

Are you still running scanimage via sudo?  In that case the environment
settings are likely to get cleaned out.  I forgot about that, sorry.

IIRC, on Ubuntu you need to be in the scanner group in order to use it
without sudo.  You can check which groups you are in with, surprise!, the


command.  If that does not list scanner, you can add yourself to that
group with

  sudo adduser mono scanner

assuming mono is your user name.  After that log out and back in again
to make the change take effect.

Hope this helps, and apologies back for my late reply ;-)
