View Full Version : [ubuntu] help installing scsi scanner

April 25th, 2009, 07:29 PM
I just installed Jaunty and am trying to install an old HP Scanjet5p scanner with a Kouwell scsi card. I was able to find drivers for the card which is a KW-801V10P in the zip format.
Reading the install instructions it tell me to extract the files to /usr/src/linux/drivers/scsi. The problem I have is that when I extract to that path I get a pop up telling no such folders exist and I do not have permission to create one.

Can anyone help me install these drivers so Xsane will recognize my scanner.

THe drivers for your scsi may already be installed, open a terminal and type:

lsmod | grep scsi

to see if the drivers are already installed.

I get scsi_transport_spi 30080 1 sym53c8xx.

Xsane says no devices available.

thanks for the quick reply.

Any Ideas?
