I can't resolve a usb-scanner problem. I have checked all the sane, xsane sane-backend man pages but still I get an error message when I start xsane or xscanimage or scanimage like: device busy.
I run a debian like system KNOPPIX 3.

There is an interesting thread but they came to no result.
Here you mey find some output they show that the scanner is recognized by the OS.
# sane-find-scanner will now attempt to detect your scanner. If the
# result is different from what you expected, first make sure your
# scanner is powered up and properly connected to your computer.
# No SCSI scanners found. If you expected something different, make sure that
# you have loaded a SCSI driver for your SCSI adapter.

device `plustek:libusb:002:004' is a Epson Perfection 1250/Photo USB flatbed scanner
The device files are like:
crw-rw-rw- 1 root scanner 180, 48 2002-07-14 07:55 /dev/usb/scanner0
crw-rw-rw- 1 root scanner 180, 49 2002-07-14 07:55 /dev/usb/scanner1
while user geo is a member of group scanner!
There is no link from /dev/usbscanner to /dev/usb/scanner0, because that can create trouble.
/etc/sane.d/#Epson 1250 plustek.conf has been updated in regard to the vendor and device id:
[usb] 0x4b8 0x110
In /etc/fstab one can find:
usbfs /proc/bus/usb usbfs devmode=0666 0 0
none /proc/bus/usb usbfs defaults 0 0
There is no kernel module "scanner" on the system.
I hope I gathered all neccessary information in order to aks for help.
Thanks in advance
