Lexmark X73 and libusb
 
Hi,
I've tried to use the scanner of my Lexmark X73 without success. As I have a kernel v2.6 installed, I must use libusb, not a kernel module. The problem is, sane-find-scanner seems to detect it quite well, according to this:
Quote:

# No SCSI scanners found. If you expected something different, make sure that
# you have loaded a SCSI driver for your SCSI adapter.

found USB scanner (vendor=0x043d, product=0x002d, chip=GT-6816) at libusb:001:007
# Your USB scanner was (probably) detected. It may or may not be supported by
# SANE. Try scanimage -L and read the backend's manpage.

# Not checking for parallel port scanners.

# Most Scanners connected to the parallel port or other proprietary ports
# can't be detected by this program.

# You may want to run this program as root to find all devices. Once you
# found the scanner devices, be sure to adjust access permissions as
# necessary.
Unfortunately, scanimage tells me it has found no scanner at all (and so does xsane). I've the latest versions of sane-backends and libusb installed, gt68xx is enabled and oslo3071b2.usb is at the right place.
Does somebody have a clue?

Do a search for Lexmark anything on this site and you will quickly learn that although populating the shelves at Wal-Mart quite noticieably, Lexmark products are POORLY supported on Linux. Not for lack of initiative on our part but due to an apparent lack of interest by Lexmark.

The problem is, I've managed to make it work with an older kernel (but 2.6 still), but I've had to reinstall after a hard disk crash and I don't remember how to proceed. In my opinion, it has something to do with libusb and the way sane communicates with it more than the product itself.

works with libusb-0.1.10a (... if someone does care about it)
