[sane-devel] OS/2 device driver for HP7450C
Tue, 11 Feb 2003 00:51:00 +0100 (CET)
The Scanjet 7450 is a normal 7400 and also identifies as such.
If you connect is via SCSI to your OS/2 box it "should" work
But using USB is not that easy - I guess writing a kernel driver for
OS/2 is not that easy (we would need s.th. like the hpusbscsi) - maybe
I should "convert" my driver to do the scsi-emulation in user-space?
Via libusb or so?
Any hints (I never did any low-level usb prgramming - the hpusbscsi
luckily just appeared ;-)
