Does 150 dpi scan always fail, even after doing a preview ?
For the problem you have at 1200 dpi, what do you mean by second half is
black ? Height or width ? Does it work if you scan a small area (ie at least
smaller than half of the scan area) ?
In order to fix the problems you have, I need rts8891 backend debug logs. You
can generate by running scanimage like this in a command shell:
scanimage -d -r 150 rts8891 2>rts8891-150dpi.log >rts8891-150dpi.pnm
for 1200 dpi, in order to minimize log, add -h option:
scanimage -d -r 1200 -h 10 rts8891 2>rts8891-1200dpi.log >rts8891-1200dpi.pnm
It would be great if you could do the tests with latest source code. Then
send the log files compressed to the list or directly to me if the mail
is too big.
I can't tell for sure now since I don't have the logs, but fixing these
problems will surely involve recording USB activity of your scanner when doing
the same scans under windows with the driver provided by HP.
