I tried all from Benq section. I also tried all from Agfa, as I read on
the net that Acer S2W 3300U is a derivate from an Agfa model (still I
don't know from which one).

So I started with that article from knowledge database:

Step 1.: sane-find-scanner


# No SCSI scanners found. If you expected something different, make
sure that
# you have loaded a SCSI driver for your SCSI adapter.

found USB scanner (vendor=0x04a5, product=0x20b0) at /dev/usb/scanner0
found USB scanner (vendor=0x04a5, product=0x20b0) at /dev/usbscanner
found USB scanner (vendor=0x05a9, product=0xa511) at libusb:001:002
found USB scanner (vendor=0x04a5, product=0x20b0) at libusb:001:003
# A USB device was detected. This program can't be sure if it's really
# a scanner. If it is your scanner, it may or may not be supported by
# SANE. Try scanimage -L and read the backend's manpage.

# Scanners connected to the parallel port or other proprietary ports
can't be
# detected by this program.

# You may want to run this program as root to find all devices. Once
# found the scanner devices, be sure to adjust access permissions as
# necessary.

Step 2.: scanimage -L

scanimage -L
device `snapscan:/dev/usb/scanner0' is a Acer FlatbedScanner22 flatbed
device `snapscan:/dev/usbscanner' is a Acer FlatbedScanner22 flatbed

Step 3: xscanimage

I get a popup windows: Failed to open device
`snapscan:/dev/usb/scanner0: Invalid argument.

I tried to restart the USB service /sbin/rchotplug restart, it restarts
fine, but scanner still not working.

Any suggestions?

Thank you.
