I am trying to get my scanner working on FreeBSD 5-STABLE. It is a canon 640P
and should work with sane-backends/canon_pp driver (with libieee1284)
It appears there is some problem with detecting the scanner. I don't know
the exact source of this, I'm hoping someone can help with this (this
relates to ports
because perhaps the config files/build need to be modified in order
for stuff to work).
I posted to the sane-devel mailing list, which has helped to some
it appears there are some FreeBSD-specific issues (see
Essentially, sane never sees the scanner and there are a bunch of
timeouts. (see link)
Is there anyone with experience in porting stuff that uses libiee1284
that can help??
Is there anyone working on the sane-backends port that can help???
Thanks in advance,
