Re: UMAX Astra 1220P Scanner not working using Sane
Tried ECP, EPP and ECP+EPP modes for the parallel port (from the BIOS), nuthin. I reinstalled Windows on a spare hard drive and I'm scanning from there and then fetching the files in Lubuntu. It's annoying, but it works.
I always called this PC a dinosaur (specs in my signature), but I guess parallel ports are from the time the Earth cooled. If anybody ever figures this out in a simpler way than (in)sane, PM me.
