Re: USB SCanners

Thanks for the tip and suggestion(s)..

Here is what I see when I run 'same-find-scanner'  as root:

"found USB scanner (vendor=0x03f0, product=0x2005) at libusb:001:002
  # Your USB scanner was (probably) detected. It may or may not be
supported by
  # SANE. Try scanimage -L and read the backend's manpage."

However, I don't get much when I run 'scanimage -L'.

But I do have an indication that a scanner exists at -

Don't know if any of this is good or bad news..
