Description Diederik van der Boor 2003-12-28 16:51:32 UTC
The hotplug system wasn't able to detect my scanner correctly before the following line was added:

  scanner              0x0003 0x05d8   0x4002  (all other fields are zero)

I hope this line could be added to the core-system configuration files.

The scanner is an 'Mustek ScanExpress 1200 UB Plus flatbed scanner'. It doesn't have a power cord, but uses the USB interface instead.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:

My /etc/sane.d/gt68xx.conf also required a few modifications to work with the
scanner, but perhaps this should be submitted in a different bug-report (?)

  usb 0x05d8 0x4002
  override "mustek-scanexpress-1200-ub-plus"
  firmware "/usr/share/sane/gt68xx/SBfw.usb"
  afe 0x20 0x02 0x22 0x03 0x1f 0x04
  device /dev/usb/scanner0

The SBfw.usb file was found on my Windows XP partition, even though Windows XP
isn't able to interact with the scanner at all. ;-) (Windows 98 worked fine)

There is no more USB scanner driver, so you don't need it loaded :)

Just use the lastes sane code, which uses usbfs to talk to the device.
