Scanner (here: Mustek Bearpaw 1200 CS), Scanning and file size reduction under Debian Jessie

Posted 06-05-2015 at 07:44 AM by jere21

tl;dr:
Save A1fw.usb to /usr/share/sane/gt68xx/ and start scanning with sane.

More general instructions for installing a scanner:
  1. Your user should be in group "scanner" and sane must be installed. In my case I have:
    Code:
    ii  libsane:amd64         1.0.24-13    amd64  API library for scanners
    ii  libsane-common        1.0.24-13    all    API library for scanners -- documentation and support files
    ii  libsane-extras:amd64  1.0.22.3     amd64

AGFA Snapscan e50

General:
As starting point to get your scanner working under Linux go to SANE: Supported Devices

Get the AGFA Scanwise driver package, which contains the necessary firmware "Snape50.bin" and save that somewhere.
Then modify /etc/sane.d/snapscan.conf:
Code:
firmware /path/to/ScanWise/Drivers/Snape50.bin
That's it.
