did you set the dll.conf file in sane.d?
comment out everything except net,plustek ,v41
also because it's on the para port an ordinary user does NOT have the right
permissions to use it so you will have to use the "net" device to ascess it.
read doc for saned and sane,net
just to check try running xsane as root to see if it works. however DO NOT
NORMALLY USE AS ROOT!!!!!!!!!!!
hope this helps
