Ubuntu 12.10 64-bit (fresh install)
HP Scanjet 8390
This scanner is SUPPOSED to be supported by the avision backend.
Scanner is detected by:
found USB scanner (vendor=0x07d1, product=0x3c11) at libusb:001:004

When I ran XSANE, it warned about multiple versions installed. SO, I uninstalled everything I could find labeled SANE and attempted to reinstall. I got an error message:
root@jg-GA:~# scanimage -L
No scanners were identified.
SO, I deleted this file and tried again. I got another error message about another file in /etc/sane.d/. There were A LOT of foobar.conf files in /etc/sane.d/ SO I "just" deleted /etc/sane.d/ and the reinstall seemed to go O.K. but scanimage still could not find my scanner.
E: /var/cache/apt/archives/libsane_1.0.23-0ubuntu1_amd64.deb: trying to overwrite shared '/etc/sane.d/fujitsu.conf', which is different from other instances of package libsane:amd64
Hmmmm... Check /etc/sane.d/, now the only files present are:
│ └── libsane-extras
Now all the foobar.conf files are in: /usr/local/etc/sane.d/, does this matter?
I also installed the latest backends from git:
This site gives these instructions:
jg@jg-GA:~$ scanimage -V
scanimage (sane-backends) 1.0.24git; backend version 1.0.24
(I DID NOT compile from source but if I have to I will.)
To make sure that the newest version of sane (in /usr/local/lib/sane) is used
To use the old version it should read
gksu gedit /etc/ld.so.conf
To use the new version, change it to
and you should be running the latest sane. NO HELP.
I first added
and then tried
to avision.conf - no help.
A group named "scanner" exists and I am a member.
I have exhausted my limited Linux skills. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
P.S. Now I have another problem! Running
kills my USB wireless modem!
I will make a separate post for this.
