Hi all,

I know this isn't exactly Gimp stuff - but I am trying to access my new
USB scanner through the Gimp:
File -> Acquire -> Xsane: Device dialog
and I figured that lots of you guys must have already set up a USB scanner
Anyway, I've done a lot of google-ing but so far have been unable to find
out how
to set it up.
When I re-booted the system (I installed a new sound card - SBLive [which
I'm still trying to get working]) the usb modules loaded ok and I have an
entry /dev/usb/scanner0 (-rw-rw-rw-). However, when I try to access it
from within the Gimp (or thru Xsane), I get an error message that no
devices are available.

I did do a 'sane-find-scanner -v' and got the following:
sane-find-scanner: checking /dev/usb/scanner0... open ok, vendor and
product ids were identified
sane-find-scanner: found USB scanner (vendor = 0x04a5, product = 0x20b0)
at device /dev/usb/scanner0

Do I have to mount the scanner first- if so what do I put in /etc/fstab?
Or is it that I have to make the system think that it is a scsi device?

Any pointers welcome :-)
