I have one configured!!!


Hi collin!

I also have an Scanjet 5100c installed on Suse Linux 10, but on 32bit.

I also tried to do the same configuration and didn't work. These steps that i discovered solved the problem to me:

1. Unpack the last version of ppscsi;
2. On the ppscsi paste use the command: make
3. after then use the comand: insmod ppscsi.ko
4. install this one: insmod epst.ko
5. if u have the parport installed, that comes with the Suse, activate him with: modprobe parport_pc
6. Run the xsane program on the console.

These worked with me, hope that it help you too.

Jeff

Hi Jeff,
I am sorry that I did not respond to you sooner, I have been in and out of town on business. I have just downloaded the Suse 10.0 I386 version and I will install and try and work through your instructions. The only question that I have at the moment is in the second step. "2. On the ppscsi paste use the command: make". I am not sure what you mean, would you clarify please?
Thanks for the help, at least I know that the HP5100C will work with Suse.

Cheers,
Colin

I'm sorry about my REALLY bad English. It's not paste, its the ppscsi sub-directory where you downloaded and extracted the files :-)

Yes, I did check Xsane and I have 0.97 installed.

And hi to Cousinlucky, Linux is great don't give up on it, there are many people out there that are willing help.

Cheers,

I'm trying to get this scanner going as well. I'm just going to keep working on it and bringing my results here so we can all have a definitive asnwer to the question.

So far I have found that the modules for parallell port scsi already exist within this version. I'm using Mandriva 2009.

Here we go, so far all I've done is add to modprobe.conf:

install /dev/parport0 /sbin/modprobe scsi_mod
install /dev/parport0 /sbin/modprobe sg
install /dev/parport0 /sbin/modprobe parport
install /dev/parport0 /sbin/modprobe parport_pc
install /dev/parport0 /sbin/modprobe ppscsi
install /dev/parport0 /sbin/modprobe epst

and in modules.conf:

/sbin/modprobe scsi_mod
/sbin/modprobe sg
/sbin/modprobe parport
/sbin/modprobe parport_pc
/sbin/modprobe ppscsi
/sbin/modprobe epst

...and reboot.

Well that was a complete waste of time.

Now I find all the drivers are part of teh system, they're already there. Why DL and patch other ppscsi and epst files is lost on me.

In any case there's not point trying to 'modprobe epst' because a fatal erro tels me it's already installed. That being the case, the system realises the parallel port is also a scsi device and the epst (supported by HP) driver is installed in the kernel WHY CAN'T I GET THE SCANNER GOING?

Frustrimacatoid instranoyed conflatum (my take on modernising latin) when I'm annoyed.

Sorry intruder...

The ScanJet 4670 is not listed by the SANE project as supported.
