I have recently installed 12.04 and set up, not without difficulties, a scanner (hp scanjet 2400) that I was nicely using with xsane.
After a recent automatic update of the system, any attempt to scan pictures results in a crash of the scanning program, independently on which program I tried to use (meaning xsane, simplescan, scanner utility, gscan2pdf, skanlite, yes I have tried them all...). The result is always the same, the programs crash.
After the crash, the bug report pop up points to a problem with the third party libsane-xxx.so.1.0.24.
I have purged and installed from scratch xsane, the sane back-ends, libsane-dev several times, and the problem persists, and I couldn't find any thread that could help me solve this.
Did anyone experience anything similar or has any suggestions?
