Add SANE scanner support for OS X 10.2, 10.3
Authored by: jedik on Dec 15, '03 11:22:23PM

Same here. I have a Canon N670U, listed as supported using the plustek backend. The command "sane-find-scanner" finds the scanner, but the "scanimage -L" command gives an error. I tried editing the backend configuration file (plustek.conf), but it didn't help. I have the original Canon driver installed. Maybe there's a conflict between the manufacturer's driver and sane. :\

At least, it's great to know that someone is porting sane to OS X. Keep up the good work. ;)

Add SANE scanner support for OS X 10.2, 10.3
Authored by: ahaig on Dec 16, '03 08:50:33AM

I have SANE running on a Gentoo Linux box with the actual scanner (AGFA snapscan e50) attached to it via USB. I have the SANE backends installed on my mac (they were actually relatively easy to compile - I'm surprised there wasn't a package already...) and am able to use the SANE scanner as a network scanner - pretty sweet.

Now just need a release of Kooka (KDE scanner software) that will link properly...

I got much further after installing libusb from source from http://libusb.sf.net. I can scan on UMAX 1220U from the commandline, not yet from TWAIN, then the console complains: /tmp/TWAIN-SANE-Interface.build/MakeControls.cpp:35: failed assertion `oserr == noErr'
