Hi Gerald,

Abel forwarded your logfiles to me, thanks. I think you should try the=20
no-backtracking option: Please remove the "#" from the line=20
 # option no-backtrack-option on
in your microtek2.conf file. This file usually resides in=20
/usr/local/etc/sane.d or /etc/sane.d depending on your distribution. You =
to be root to edit this file.

now please try scanimage with the option --no-backtracking=3Dyes, for exa=
scanimage --no-backtracking=3Dyes --resolution 300 -l 10 -t 10 -x 200 -y =

If you like to use xscanimage or xsane then you find the appropriate opti=
on in=20
the special options menu.

Have luck!=20
