Thanks for the pointer! There are lots of statements around, including one
at the SANE website, that the 3200C isn't supported -- but the man page for
sane-umax_pp specifically indicates that it is.
However, I still can't get it going. I think I need to know the correct
call on scanimage. Here's one thing I tried, with results:
pwa@suillus:~> scanimage -d umax_pp:/dev/scanner
[umax_pp_low] Found 0x18 expected 0x00 (umax_pp_low.c:4007)
[umax_pp_low] Unexpected value for for register 0x0D, expected 0x00 or 0x40,
got 0x18 ! (umax_pp_low.c:4078)
[umax_pp_low] EPPRegisterRead, found 0xFF expected 0x0 (umax_pp_low.c:4164)
scanimage: open of device umax_pp:/dev/scanner failed: Invalid argument
I tried the same thing with /dev/null, /dev/lp0, and also with umax_pp:0X3BC
(following the information in the "DEVICE NAMES" section of the manpage) with
the same result in each case. I know the scanner is working because I can
use it under Win4Lin. I tried calling scanimage both as a normal user and as
root; that made no difference either.
I looked in /proc for something that looked like IEEE 1284 probe information,
but found nothing.
And of course,
tells me that that no scanners were identified.
I expect I'm just missing the magic incantation.
Many thanks -
