Yes, and probably have to make sure "parport_pc" module is loaded for parallel port scanner -- it is for me as I have a parallel port printer and the Printer Wizard causes the parport module to get loaded at bootup.

Okay, I gotta finish the Scanner Wizard!
...this should be done by Pup 1.0.4!

Umm, there are such things as SCSI scanners aren't there?
...are these rare enough to pretend there aren't any?

I've heard of them, but have never seen one. I'd say to forget about them unless people request the feature. I'd have no to test and see if it worked either.

Just a thought... Do we really need a scanner wizard since xsane detects the presence and type of scanner automatically (once the module is loaded). Could we just have a script that the xsane start menu points to instead of actually pointing to xsane? The script could then load the module and start xsane.

Yeah that's true, like a simple question, that only has to be asked once "Do you have a usb or parallel-port scanner, or both?" -- or maybe that can be autodetected ...hmm, yes, could be -- the "find scanner" program only works for usb scanners, so if that fails then it either isn't supported or it's a parallel-port scanner ...yeah, no need for a Wizard!

Found a solution that works for me. I just put the line "modprobe scanner" into /etc/rc.d/rc.local. Now xsane works as expected even after a reboot.

PostPosted: Wed 13 Jul 2005, 05:44    Post_subject: Epson 1200  

Hello Ive tried the correction for my epson 1200 scanner, the strange thing is
sane-find-scanner works,it recognized the epson 1200,but when i do the follow
up scanimage(Xsane) it doesn't recogonize the Epson. Stranger still is works with Mepis.
The diff between the distro's is the dir structure and the Epson libs are more
current in Mepis. One could change the libs in Puppy,don't know if this is the
right approach.Being new at Unix would I have to recompile the Kernel,or
use the Util depmod,insmod to include the updated libs. Right now I am
guessing as to how to fix this problem,any help would be appreciated

Maybe this a dumb question,but it would be dumb if one didn't ask

Those are the same symptoms I was having. Did you download and install the scanner.o.gz file that Barry posted? After that you then need to load the module. Also, what version of Puppy are you using?

cp scanner.o.gz to /lib/modules/2.4.27/usb/
# depmod
#modprobe scanner

Well it looks like it loaded. You could be right about the scanner library. Barry has upgraded the sane library to 1.0.15 (the latest version) for Puppy 1.0.4. My Epson 1250 works with the current library, so I would be interested to know if the Epson 1200 requires the newest library.

Hi thanks for responding , if I change the epsons libs to a latter version, do
I have to recompile the kernel ,that was my orignal question? or can I just
use the Utils depmod ect. Anyway I tried PcLinux os-81 a new distro and you guessed it ,the Epson 1200 worked. What the difference are don't know,well
keep you posted.


Thanks

I don't know if a kernel recompile would be needed or not. Sorry Sad Hopefully 1.0.4 will be out soon and you can try that.
