#67 Problem with Snapscan 1212u_2 and libusb


I have been using the Snapscan backend on a Linux ix86 system
with the usb scanner module for a long time with no problems. I
recently switched to kernel 2.6.3 and due to the fact that the
scanner module no longer exist I have to use libusb. I found out
that the 1212u_2 will work only if "Quality Calibration" is turned off.
When it is turned on, it produces an I/O error. Attached is a
verbrose log from SANE and part of my kernel log.

Thank you for your attention.

    Did you get it working by disabling Quality Calibration?
    Must this be changed in the source files or can it be passed as a
    command line option?

    Please retry your test with sane-backends-1.0.14. It's
    supposed to have a workaround for buggy USB chipsets that
    have some negative side effects on 2.6 kernels with libusb.
    Also check that you have upgraded your hotplug package to a
    version that works correctly on 2.6.

    sane-backends-1.0.14 introduces some other problems for the
    1212u_2. They should be fixed in SANE CVS.
