need help with xsane and sane


I just installed suse 9.1 but cant use my scanner. Immediately when i start a scan in xsane 9.2 i get "error during read: Error during device I/O." everything else works fine. But I do a lot of scanning for a realestate office. I am trying to convert them from microsoft to linux. Everything else is fine. They will need this one function to work. I uninstalled xsane and sane and tried older version but they didnt work.
the scanner is usb hp 5200c

thanks ahead of time

did you configure it with yast2 before you tried to use it. it's one of the few things that the install routine doesn't configure for you

right click the suse hardware tool (little net card looking thing down by the clock) select configure, unselect "inform me of new hardware", select 'OK'. open yast2/hardware/scanner and remove all scanners. select finish. open 'scanner' again and reconfigure.

For a HP scanner, you need to change /usr/local/etc/sane.d/hp.conf to contain just the following two lines:

/dev/usb/scanner0
option connect-device
