Canoscan LiDE 50 - future support?
I know this is unsupported at the moment, however, I've found this kernel patch:
edit: won't let me post the url, so please unbreak it
I understand the LiDE 50 unsupported so far by SANE and with no third party support, and unlikely to be included in a genesys chipset project. It's the first Canon product I've ever bought (although I bought a Canon printer the same week), and they'll both be the last. That'll teach me to buy branded products.
Very, very happy with linux (Mandrake 10.1 Community after disappointment with SuSE and failure with Red Hat 5 years ago), prepared to wait for a bit and keep a dual boot until the lide 50 gets supported (or I get rid of it if necessary, but it's only a few months old.) However, it'd be good to know if this patch actually provides some support for the device, or if it just makes it show up on a list or something.
First question I've actually had to ask on this forum, usually searches bring up the answer within a few seconds. Thanks for any help.
