Thanks very much - that is encouraging and exactly what I wanted to
know. Debian Sid has the 1.0.22 version of genesys, which is the
relevant driver, and /etc/sane.d/genesys.conf lists the Lide 110 among
the supported printers. So it _ought_to work. I was worried because I
found some people on Ubuntu who had had problems, probably on the
previous version of genesys.
I'm not bothered about the buttons - they don't work on the Epson
Perfection 1650 either, but that never worried me. How have you found
the performance of scanner itself?
