Do I need to have the device for USB 2.0 perhaps??
That is the only thing that is still commented. I'll
try that later on today. As root, yes, I am able to
have sane test, not as a user. The scanner I am testing
is recognized--HP ScanJet 4100C. But it was sold AS-IS
and may well be broken. My friend got a *second* 4100C
for $1.00 [no, not kidding]; it works on his Windows
box. ((I'll gladly let him scan things if he is willing.))

I'll check your PR, thnks. I've got some other question
for you or the list---anyone who has successfully scanned
books and OCR'd them into ASCII|iso_8859-1.
Which USB model scanner Just-Works? Any? None? More to the
point, is there any scanner that works with books using
xsane to do OCR?
thanks for any insights,
