Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 97408
xsane hangs about 1" into scan preview on hp scanjet 5300c usb
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:54:50 EDT
Description of problem:
When I do a scan to preview the contents of the scan area using xsane, the
program *always* freezes at approximately 1" from the top of the scan preview
area. My scanner is an hp scanjet 5300c with a usb connection.
I have noticed inconsistencies with the 'readiness' of the scanner as well.
Doing a hard reboot seems to reset the scanner into a working state again in
this case. As a result I suspect a problem in the scanner kernel module rather
than in xsane. However, this may be related to the fact that I have to kill the
program and it cannot reset the scanner to a proper state as a result.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
This doesn't seem to be a particularly well-supported scanner, from a quick search.
