I have an HP 5200C scanner, attached over USB.
OS is FreeBSD 4-Stable.
In the kernel configuration file, I have this for usb support:
device scbus # SCSI bus (required)
device da # Direct Access (disks)
device uhci # UHCI PCI->USB interface
device usb # USB Bus (required)
device umass # Disks/Mass storage - Requires scbus and da
device uscanner # Scanners
Recompiled everything etc. etc.
Now I'm trying to get through the information on this scanner & FreeBSD.
I'm quite familiar with managing FreeBSD, but here I'm totally lost.
I get this:
found USB scanner (UNKNOWN vendor and product) at device /dev/uscanner0
# xscanimage /dev/uscanner0
pops up a dialog that says
"Failed to open device '/dev/uscanner0'. Invalid argument".
[xscanimage] No scanners were identified. If you were expecting something
different, check that the scanner is plugged in, turned on and
detected by sane-find-scanner (if appropriate). Please read
the documentation which came with this software (README, FAQ,
In various manuals (too many talk about linux only) I learn that
"I should configure/tell the kernel about the vendor and product".
I know how to (re)compile the kernel etc. but how do I tell the
kernel that I have an HP 5200C scanner?
Help is very much appreciated.
