I have an epson perfection 1660 photo that worked beautiful under 6.0. I
recently reinstalled a my laptop with 8.0:
FreeBSD trooper.naughton.ca 8.1-STABLE FreeBSD 8.1-STABLE #0: Fri Oct 8
17:37:37 EDT 2010
root at trooper.naughton.ca:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC i386
It seems that /dev/uscanner has been dropped with the support of libusb.
Now if I run sane-find-scanner as root or as user I get:
# sane-find-scanner -q
found USB scanner (vendor=0x04b8 [EPSON], product=0x011e [EPSON Scanner])
Yet if I run
# scanimage -L
No scanners were identified. If you were expecting something different,
check that the scanner is plugged in, turned on and detected by the
sane-find-scanner tool (if appropriate). Please read the documentation
which came with this software (README, FAQ, manpages).
Though even as scanimage -L fails to find the scanner I can run the command:
# scanimage -d epson --format=tiff > foo.tiff
and it works (the resolution is pretty crappy but it works). If I attempt
to simply run:
# scanimage --format=tiff >foo2.tiff
scanimage: no SANE devices found
xsane fails to find anything so it won't start. Any suggestions? I've
been surfing the web but I haven't found anything as of yet.
