do it. being in 'group's makes for better association.

i have not gotten into pleasure of 64 bit yet, so i can not comment
on how and why of work/not work.
check: http://www.sane-project.org/ to search for backend drivers.
i copied all my scanner files that i still had and will check back thru
them to see where i found what i need for xsane and gimp.
can not help with iscan, do not believe it was released when i set up
scanner. which i have not done again as it was on loan and now returned.

your i386 drivers may not work due to a changes in code from time of
i386 and now x86_64.

welcome. do use google-linux advanced address. does work much better.

in some cases, cpu may be needed, but in most all, device model is best
going offline to take care of my mom. back in an hour or so.
in a free world without fences, who needs gates.
