Hi Andrew!

THX for fast reply!

As I mentioned, but the idea was to use that 1220u-driver from
P. Mackerras, if I'd be able to adapt it.

In the kernel-ring buffer shows the scanner with following lines:

hub.c: USB new divice connect on bus1/1/3, assigned device number 5
usb.c: USB device 5 (vend/prod 0x1606/0x130) is not claimed by any
active driver 
usb.c: registered new driver usbscanner
scanner.c: 0.4.6:USB Scanner Driver

Whereas the 0x1606/0x130 could be found in scanner.h in
kernel/drivers/usb for the UMAX 2100U in a "static struct
usb_device_id scanner_device_ids"-definition.
So it seems to me, as this device is recognized as scanner, isn't it?

If so, the question is, where I have to have that _active_ driver? (at
that time?).

For shure as is Jonathan Buzzards page at http://www.buzzard.org.uk/jonathan/
 and I did that until 2:30am this morning ;-)

For shure I do so, but allow me one more question as you tried this, I

If I want to try that driver I have to recompile sane-1.0.6 or
probably *.5, but as I mentioned in my second mail, I couldn't find
them (just looked for binaries) in ppc as they should be in woody or 
sid (only x86? : -(( ) at least.

Or do I have to compile that 1220u-backend against the sources of
libsane, as this seems to contain what you find in the sane-backend on
http://www.mostang.com/sane/ ? 

To finish: Has anybody here experiences with that he would share?

TIA for all replies
