Description of problem:
I used sane-1.0.6-3.rpm My Mustek 1200CU worked very fine.
Now, after I ugraded to skipjack with sane-1.0.7.x.rpm my scanner isn't
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Rebuild the kernel with usb-scanner-support. (Not as module.)
2.I downgraded to sane-1.0.6-3.rpm
Actual Results: sane-1.0.7 still doesn't work.
sane-1.0.6-3 works fine again.
This problem seems to be present with EPSON PERFECTION 1640SU connected via USB
If you back off to the last known working kernel, does the problem still happen?
In other words, is this a kernel problem or a sane problem?
Never mind, I missed that 1.0.6-3 works for you. Okay, SANE problem.
Which front ends are you both using? scanimage? xscanimage? xsane?
Does 'sane-find-scanner' show your scanners?
firstname.lastname@example.org: Please attach the output of:
SANE_DEBUG_MUSTEK_USB=7 scanimage -L
email@example.com: Please attach the output of:
SANE_DEBUG_EPSON=128 scanimage -L
I am using xsane but xscanimage and scanimage all fails
sane-find-scanner finds the scanner
sane-find-scanner: found USB scanner (vendor = 0x04b8, product = 0x010a) at
[root@knut2 knut]# SANE_DEBUG_EPSON=128 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).
firstname.lastname@example.org: Please edit /etc/sane.d/epson.conf to put a line in like this:
Does that fix the problem with the Epson scanner? (It can't be enabled like that
by default, unfortunately--see the comment in the configuration file about it.)
This was already done before my atempts
[knut@knut2 normal]$ cat /etc/sane.d/epson.conf
# here are some examples for how to configure the EPSON backend
# SCSI scanner:
# Parallel port scanner:
# USB scanner - only enable this if you have an EPSON scanner. It could
# otherwise block your non-EPSON scanner from being
The problem is still present in beta2
Do you have 'epson' listed in /etc/sane.d/dll.conf? I can't understand why
you wouldn't get any output from 'SANE_DEBUG_EPSON=128 scanimage -L'. Can you
try it again for me?
The bug went away after a complete upgrade using
RedHat Update Agent. (Including kernel upgrade).
One small buglet in the new epson.conf still exists.
I had to change the line
in /etc/sane.d/epson.conf after the upgrade.
Okay. The filename issue is already elsewhere in bugzilla.
