Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have done that - and the "sane-backends-1.0.9.tar.gz" install appears to have gone OK. Now "sane-find-scanner" finds the scanner, but "scanimage -L" can not find it. I have tried installing "plustek_sane-0_44_10.tar.gz" (to include support for the CanoScan N650u) but this does not seem to be successful. Looking at "/usr/local/etc/sane.d" the N630u is listed, but there is no reference to N650u.
I modified /usr/local/etc/sane.d/plustek.conf and looks like this:
# For parport devices use the parport section
# leave the default values as specified in /etc/modules.conf
# option warmup -1
# option lOffOnEnd -1
# option lampOff -1
# The USB section:
# each device needs at least two lines:
# - [usb] vendor-ID and product-ID
# - device devicename
# - CanoScan N650u
[usb] 0x04a9 0x2206
Again "sane-find-scanner" finds the scanner, but "scanimage -L" doesn't.
adding "options scanner vendor=0x04a9 product=2206"to the end of /etc/modules.conf made no difference. And I still have to manually do "modprobe scanner vendor=0x04a9 product=2206" before "sane-find-scanner" can see the scanner.
When I removed the sane-1.0..8 rpm, I had to remove xsane and libsane. Searching for libsane.so.1 on RPMfind it lists "sane-backends-1.0.9-1.i386.rpm" (Which is not listed when searching for sane.) Is it safe to install the "sane-backends-1.0.9-1.i386.rpm" over the source install to get libsane, or do I throw the lot out the window?
