Problem setting up scanner - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

According to Hardware Browser, the system has detected my scanner, however I can't do anything with it. The Graphics -> Scanning menu option reports "no devices available". I have a CanoScan 1240 on a USB port. Any suggestions how to fix this? (I've tried as superuser, root and user)...

    I have a standard reply to this query:

    The fact that a scanner is identified doesn't mean it is supported. For
    each new scanner, a new driver needs to be written. I have a Canon D646U,
    and the same thing happens. Updated SANE backends are available, but mine
    still isn't supported. there is a list of supported scanners on the SANE
    Web site.

    HTH,

    Doug.

    Which version of SANE do you use? scanimage --version

    I think you need at least 1.0.10.

    If you have 1.0.10, you may need to edit /etc/sane.d/plustek.conf.
    Change "/dev/usbscanner" to "/dev/usb/scanner0" at the end of the
    file.

    Is the scanner found by sane-find-scanner?

    If yes, what does "SANE_DEBUG_PLUSTEK=255 scanimage -L" show?


    Bye,
    Henning

    A good source for scanner info is sourceforge.net

    Hope you find what you're looking for ;-)

    I got my Canon FB630U scanner since mdk9.0 or 9.1 (not sure about the
    version) ;-)
