The Os installed on the above server is "RHEL 4 (Nahant). Kernel version : 2.6.9-5.Elsmp on i686.
I want to install the scanner. What should i hv. to do ?
I hv. changed the files as follows and tried but failed.
changed the file /etc/sane.d/epson.conf. In this file the statement "SCSI Epson" is commented by me and the second change is appeded this file with the statement "usb /dev/usb/scanner0"
After this rebooted the machine and after logging as "root" I tried the iscan. But the iscan is giving me error as :
