    Do you have SANE installed? Take a look at:

    I just got my scanner working - after m.u.c.h. pain. Once I found that
    /etc/sane.d "was not used" and that /usr/local/etc/sane.d was, things
    went much better.

    works fine after i put the firmware where it goes.

    Little hard to answer as I did a lot of things - downloaded the L&G
    xsane, scanimage, libsane(13) - swore a lot - then I started putting
    printf statements in sane-frontends../src/xscaninmag.c. That's when
    I got the statement "Can't open /usr/local/etc/sane.d/snapscan.conf".
    And I said "/USR/LOCAL????" %%$!&#^%#!! Once I got that strightened
    out - well things started working.

    As to how the scanning went ... mixed - the docs I'm trying to scan
    are old typewriter typed without any spaces between the chars ... on
    old yellowing paper. I've played with "gocr" which xsane uses, and
    unless I've missed something I don't see how to tell xsane how to
    pass args from xsane to gocr. But then I'm just getting started.
    This is the last thing I tried with gocr:
    gocr -s 30 -m 130 -s 7 -i out.pnm -o out.txt

    Rots-a-ruck.
