Xsane Can't Recognize Scanner
Last modified: 2013-11-14 06:04:04 EST
Description of problem: A hardware check of the system shows the SCSI card now, and sees the unclaimed Umax scanner. However, nothing claims it and Xsane does not see it.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):latest
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot computer and turn on scanner
2.Log in with latest kernel
No scanner found
Umax scanner found
Any ideas on getting xsane fixed?
I just received an update thru yumex today, so I shutdown, turned on the scanner and rebooted.
Upon selecting xsane, it readily opened gimp with the Umax interface showing. However, when I selected to scan, the program froze.
I then tried simple scan and it could not find the scanner.
This still needs work.
Just tried with latest kernel. Still no joy.
This doesn't seem to be a bug in the xsane frontend, the backend (driver) side is dealt with in bug #1028549. Closing this one.
