If there are any contributors to the project here, firstly I would like to say thanks! 

I hope someone can help with my problem…

When I setup scanbd to run a script with the following command, the scanner isn’t found:

sh /home/pi/scripts/scanconvert.sh &

When I run SCAN.SH myself – no problem.  

If I put the commands from scanconvert.sh into scan.sh – no problem

As soon as I pass the job of scanning to the background task using &, the scanimage command can’t see the scanner.  

Thank you,
