If you read this list you would see that an on-going discussion exists
with the most recent post just ~20 minutes ago:

SCSI and USB are treated similarly...

Evening Patrick -

Dave here, the guy who was helping Frits. Would you kindly expand on your comment regarding SCSI & USB as this is news (perhaps very good news) to me. I'd really appreciate your elaborating on this topic if you wouldn't mind.

Mucho thanks,


The OP also has a different problem - mine is that YaST sees the scanner, apparently identifies it correctly, and says it's set it up, but xsane claims it doesn't exist. I'm also trying to

You do not say *which* scanner you have, but
perhaps you should look under /etc/sane.d/ ie:

# epson.conf
# here are some examples for how to configure the EPSON backend
# SCSI scanner:
scsi EPSON
# Parallel port scanner:
#pio 0x278
#pio 0x378
#pio 0x3BC
# USB scanner - only enable this if you have an EPSON scanner. It could
# otherwise block your non-EPSON scanner from being # recognized.
# Depending on your distribution, you may need either the
# first or the second entry.
#usb /dev/usbscanner0
#usb /dev/usb/scanner0
