I need to configure gt68xx.conf
got sbfw.usb in /usr/share/sane/gt68xx off of Scanner CD
Is there a way of testing if udev has picked up scanner?
# No SCSI scanners found. If you expected something different, make sure that # you have loaded a kernel SCSI driver for your SCSI adapter. # Also you need support for SCSI Generic (sg) in your operating system. # If using Linux, try "modprobe sg". found USB scanner (vendor=0x05d8, product=0x4002, chip=GT-6801) at libusb:002:002 # Your USB scanner was (probably) detected. It may or may not be supported by # SANE. Try scanimage -L and read the backend's manpage.
scanimage -L No scanners were identified. If you were expecting something different, check that the scanner is plugged in, turned on and detected by the sane-find-scanner tool (if appropriate). Please read the documentation which came with this software (README, FAQ, manpages).
Boing thought it was better than bump !
Do you run "sane-find-scanner" and "scanimage -L" as root?
Have you added yourself to the "scanner" group?
I know, naive questions...
Microshaft delenda est
Got it now....
put SBfw.usb in /usr/share/sane/gt68xx
edit /etc/sane.d/gt68xx.conf remove '#' from line....
errr does state you should not need to do that but it works now
