Just me being stupid you are quite right modprobe aha152* works just fine 
with no errors

The following information doesn't change.

# Note that sane-find-scanner will find any scanner that is connected
# to a SCSI bus.  It will even find scanners that are not supported
# at all by SANE. It won't find a scanner that is connected to a
# parallel, USB or other non-SCSI port.

sane-find-scanner: found scanner "AGFA SNAPSCAN 1236 1.50" at device /dev/sg1

Makes no difference to the find scanner routine.

SANE_DEBUG_SNAPSCAN=255 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).

I have read the documentation and really don't know where to go from here.


There is hardly anything that some man cannot make a little worse and sell a 
little cheaper.  Ruskin
