[sane-devel] Acer 640BU :-(
Sun, 09 Sep 2001 16:53:33 -0400
This is apparently a developers mailing list. Ummm...I'm I'm in the
wrong place, could you kindly point wher I should look?
I have an Acer 640BU scanner that doesn't appear to be working. I run
RedHat7.1 linux. My USB system is apparently working, and my scanner is
recognized at that level, since I get the following when I do a "more"
T: Bus=01 Lev=00 Prnt=00 Port=00 Cnt=00 Dev#= 1 Spd=12 MxCh= 2
B: Alloc= 0/900 us ( 0%), #Int= 0, #Iso= 0
D: Ver= 1.00 Cls=09(hub ) Sub=00 Prot=00 MxPS= 8 #Cfgs= 1
P: Vendor=0000 ProdID=0000 Rev= 0.00
S: Product=USB UHCI Root Hub
C:* #Ifs= 1 Cfg#= 1 Atr=40 MxPwr= 0mA
I: If#= 0 Alt= 0 #EPs= 1 Cls=09(hub ) Sub=00 Prot=00 Driver=hub
E: Ad=81(I) Atr=03(Int.) MxPS= 8 Ivl=255ms
T: Bus=01 Lev=01 Prnt=01 Port=01 Cnt=01 Dev#= 2 Spd=12 MxCh= 0
D: Ver= 1.00 Cls=ff(vend.) Sub=ff Prot=ff MxPS= 8 #Cfgs= 1
P: Vendor=04a5 ProdID=207e Rev= 1.00
S: Product= FlatbedScanner 13
C:* #Ifs= 1 Cfg#= 1 Atr=40 MxPwr=100mA
I: If#= 0 Alt= 0 #EPs= 3 Cls=ff(vend.) Sub=ff Prot=ff Driver=(none)
E: Ad=81(I) Atr=02(Bulk) MxPS= 64 Ivl= 0ms
E: Ad=02(O) Atr=02(Bulk) MxPS= 8 Ivl= 0ms
E: Ad=83(I) Atr=03(Int.) MxPS= 8 Ivl= 16ms
As you can see, I have a device listed as "Vendor=04a5 ProdID=207e Rev=
1.00". I checked and this is indeed the code for my scanner. The
"Product= FlatbedScanner 13" part is also a clue :-)
So far so good. I also checked my /dev directory and found all sorts of
scanner files (though I don't know exactly what these are used for).
Specifically, I found :
I did *NOT* find any /dev/usbscanner or /dev/scanner files. Are these
necessary? How do I make them?
Now I checked my /etc/sane.d directory and found a whole bunch of */conf
files. I assume the one I have to modify is snapscan.conf, correct? So I
modify that file to have only one line:
Now I'm thinking I've done everything I need to. However, when I run
xsane, it complains that no devices are available. Running scanimage
--list-devices also produces no output at all.
Soooo...does anyone have any ideas as to what's going on, now that I
have rambled a bit. Any help is truly appreciated!
Thanks in advance...
