Add SANE scanner support for OS X 10.2, 10.3
Authored by: ssevenup on Dec 16, '03 12:26:42PM

If you read the sane mailing list, you will see how beta this is. I couldn't get my Epson 636U working either. The find utility sees it, but scanimage -L does not. I played with debug levels because many on the list say that tweaking those affects timings and sometimes allows it to work. It didn't help me. Hopefully this will be solved some time soon. The configuration files are apparently important, and since OSX has no scanner devices in /dev it uses the libusb (for USB scanners anyway). I suspect my main problem may be with the config file, but the documentation is sparse and I don't know where to go. I posted to the list, but it seems mostly Linux folks read it.
