| Hi,
| I'm trying to wade through the process of getting USB working so I can use
| a hand me down Epson 1250 Photo USB scanner on woody system, with kernel
| 2.4.18 that I've configured and compiled myself.
| I've been to backports.org for the latest versions of libusb, sane-utils,
| and assorted dependences.
| I can get sane-find-scanner to find the beast (vendorID 04b8, productID
| 010f at /dev/usb/scanner0, or libusb:001:002) but can't get any of xsane,
| xscanimage, scanimage, or the gimp (using xsane) to find the scanner.
| If I try
|  $ xsane
| by itself, an info box pops up telling me "scanning for devices".  After a
| couple of minutes I get "xsane: no device available"
