Getting scanner set up (Old plustek scanner)

I have an old Plustek scanner trying to hook it up on F11. Before anyone asks, YES it is listed in the HCL and YES it did work fine under SUSE 10. I have edited the file in etc/sane.d as suggested on the Sane website, but still no joy.

Any suggestions out there?

Really? No one at all? Am I doomed to keep Windows on a spare computer for this?

Take a look at the forum guidelines about thread titles. That's probably one thing that's contributed. You haven't given very much information to, as the old customer service adage goes, help us to help you.

I've edited the title a bit in the hope that people will be more inclined to look, but really something like Plustek scanner model whatever, this type connection, is much more likely to get help. (Also, a link to where you saw something on the sane website would also help.)

Hope this is of some use to you (I've only used HP scanners with Linux, so can't be of any more help than that.)

While my HP has been a PITA to get working, I found it worked in KDE but not in Gnome. XSane has always been a big pain for me, though I haven't tried it lately.

When you used openSUSE, was it running KDE?

p.s. Anybody who sees I am incorrect in technical procedures, etc., please feel free to correct me. I'm just figuring this out as I go along. :D

Check /etc/sane.d/dll.conf and make sure it's not commented out there.
