    Help! part way there ? Scanner & webcam . . .

    Hi Folks,

    8.04 Hardy

    Xsane doesn't find scanner.

    scanimage produces this:
    scanimage: open of device v4l:/dev/video0 failed: Invalid argument

    lsusb gets me this info(other stuff left out):
    Bus 002 Device 011: ID 04a9:2225 Canon, Inc. CanoScan LiDE 70<-scanner
    Bus 002 Device 008: ID 046d:08c9 Logitech, Inc. <--------------webcam

    Added this to /etc/sane.d/genesys.conf
    # Canon LiDE 70
    #(added 7.22.2008)
    usb 0x04a9 0x2225

    But STILL getting this from xsane, after "scanning for devices",
    Error: Failed to open 'v4l:/dev/video0': Invalid argument.

    Am I supposed to do anything else ?

    It would be nice to get both scanner & webcam working.

    Anyone ?

    Check out the sane-project for your scanner.

    The scanner is a Canon LiDE 70 which the sane-project lists as unsupported.
    It's been unsupported for quite a while now, but I don't have the time now to dedicate to learning how to write a backend so I'm looking for help to set up things as if it were a LiDE 60. If that provides basic functionality, I can get by for now and write the backend later.
    As to hardware, it's a usb scanner and it will be switched between several Ubuntu machines running 8.04 from the LiveCD downloaded about 4 weeks ago.

    If you want more info from other detection programs, give me the code.
    I switched it to a different usb port so the previous locations I listed are no longer the same. Just different device numbers.

    BTW Cheese works fine for the webcam, Camorama doesn't: Error, could not connect to video device: /dev/video0. So I gotta find out what Cheese is connecting to. Later on that.
