I am trying to see if ubuntu will work with a Visioneer 7100 scanner. The SANE project lists the scanner driver backend for Visioneer 7100 as complete here http://www.sane-project.org/sane-backends.html. I am running ubuntu 10.04, kernel 2.6.32-25-generic, libusb1.0-0. I have apt-get installed xsane frontend and downloaded sane-backend-1.0.22. Following the backend README I did ./configure, make, make install, man sane. I did sane-find-scanner and got:
Which I believe to be the Visioneer scanner as 0x04a7 appears to be the Visioneer vendor number.
found USB scanner (vendor=0x04a7, product=0x0229, chip=GL646?) at libusb:003:002
I opened /etc/sane.d/genesys.conf and added
When I do scanimage -L I get
usb 0x04a7 0x0229
When I run xsane I get "no scanner found".
No scanners were identified.
Any ideas on how to configure this scanner properly?
