Use an unsupported Epson scanner with Image Capture

The Mac OS X port of the TWAIN SANE project fully supports the CanoScan N1240U, including with Image Capture. This is a new, to me, feature, as the last time I updated it on my PowerBook several months ago, it didn't work with Image Capture.

Thanks for the TWAIN SANE suggestion. I'm pretty sure none of the lower-end Canon scanners include TWAIN support so it still doesn't make sense to me how HairyPotter can use Image Capture with his N1240U unless it's with TWAIN SANE. Image Capture is most certainly blind to my LiDE 50.

I just have dl and installed the packages. In the Terminal everythings fine with my N1240U. However, I cannot get Image Capture to work with it. http://www.ellert.se/twain-sane/faq.html just links to http://developer.apple.com/technotes/tn2002/tn2088.html and I don't understand anything of it.

Did Twain Sane worked out of the box for you or did you make any changes?
