Hey no hurries its a work scanner that still work in the win machine so no probs, just want to know how to make it work
just in case somebody is interested in this topic, I'm using the FB620 model from CanonScan with no problems in BLAG 9, it's fully supported by sane:
http://www.sane-project.org/lists/sane- ... ml#Z-CANON
Also I have to modify the BIOS configuration to set the I/O mode to EPP, because in the ECP mode the scanner freezes just before starting
here's my mini-howto:
1) Install xsane
2) uncomment (or create) 'canon_pp' in /etc/sane.d/dll.conf
3) uncomment 'init_mode FB620P parport0' in '/etc/sane.d/canon_pp.conf'
4) add my user to 'lp' group and give it execution/write/read permissions in /dev/parport0 ( #chmod g+wrx /dev/parport0 )
5) unplug the scanner power cord for 20secs and plug it again
6) run xsane and enjoy!
