I want a scanner. I found one I like. I then checked the SANE 'Supported Scanners' list. My scanner is there:
"Perfection V300 Photo USB 0x04b8/0x0131 good requires DFSG non-free esci-interpreter-gt-f720<br>overseas version of the GT-F620" I'm not sure what the 'requires DFSG...' business is about, but lets get it working on FreeBSD. I followed the handbook section on scanners. After installing a few ports and tweaking a config file let's see if 'scanimage' knows about it: scanimage -L device `epson:libusb:/dev/usb3:/dev/ugen0' is a Epson flatbed scanner Yay! Let's scan something: scanimage -d epson:libusb:/dev/usb3:/dev/ugen0 > foo.pnm scanimage: rounded value of br-x from -32768 to 0 scanimage: rounded value of br-y from -32768 to 0 scanimage: sane_start: Invalid argument Maybe the backend just doesn't set a reasonable defaults for the image width/height? Let's try it manually! scanimage -x 640 -y 480 -d epson:libusb:/dev/usb3:/dev/ugen0 > foo.pnm scanimage: rounded value of br-x from 640 to -32768 scanimage: rounded value of br-y from 480 to -32768 scanimage: sane_start: Invalid argument Somewhere, something is horribly wrong. Maybe it has to do with that 'requires DFSG non-free esci-interpreter-gt-f720' business. What is that? Where do I get it and how do I use it? ... and more importantly, how do I go about getting this scanner to work? I'm willing to read and tweak, but I'm not sure what I'm supposed to tweak anymore.
