Have a problem with xsane. On woody it's version 0.84-2. When doing any
scanning the colors look extremely weird, sort of like a color negative.
Googling got me no closer.
I am thinking of compiling the 0.92 tarball and seeing what that does.
I run the 0.91-6 version on sarge and that looks great.
Anybody been here?
I know you people have been there, but anyway...
I also have been there: http://home.planet.nl/~woerk095/epson1250.html
But... I didn't say "woody" there and I don't remember under what
circumstances and where I did that. Argument for the sysadmin db!
I installed xsane 0.92
Needs libsane-dev + libjpeg62-dev + libusb from tarball.
./configure keeps on giving a confusing message about needing
sane-dev... But you have that. So check the configure.log, that will
whisper: -lusb not found... etc.
Still looks the same: is not xsane.
Then installed the sane backend latest tarball:
still looked the same!
Reading its docs I saw a note about being root...
That works! If you run xsane 0.92 as root all the colors look normal...
Question: would that also be true of the original xsane?
We leave it as an exercize for the students... ;-)
