    Post Howto: Mustek 1200 UB Plus USB Scanner Install / Setup

    An easy, cut and paste way to get The Mustek 1200 UB Plus USB Scanner or one of it's clones working in Ubuntu Breezy through Ubuntu Maverick and beyond.

    Open the Terminal(Applications>Accessories>Terminal), copy and paste the following one at a time.

    To get to the proper directory:
    Code:
    cd /usr/share/sane/gt68xx
    To download the driver firmware file sbfw.usb from the SANE gt68xx-backend site:
    Code:
    sudo wget http://www.meier-geinitz.de/sane/gt68xx-backend/firmware/sbfw.usb
    Then open the gt68xx.conf file for editing:
    Code:
    sudo gedit /etc/sane.d/gt68xx.conf
    Replace / Uncomment: hint: use ctrl+f to find
    Code:
    #override "mustek-scanexpress-1200-ub-plus"
    With:
    Code:
    override "mustek-scanexpress-1200-ub-plus"
    That's all there is to it, now you can go to Applications>Graphics>XSane Image Scanner(or SimpleScan) to scan your images.
    Enjoy!!

    The only thing better would be a script to do it for you
    Edit: A mirror location just in case the sbfw.usb host goes down. http://www.multiupload.com/4LNXQQKTC6
