Ok, tell me what you downloaded the sane-backends-1.0.9.tar.gz with? If it was IE then you most likely have a corrupted download.

I opened it with Konqueor (showing hidden files) and copied and pasted to a directory named /usr/src/sane-backends-1.0.9.

Aha!
Try doing it this way, copy the archive to /usr/src and untar it with "tar -xzf sane-backends-1.0.9.tar.gz".

Hi

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.

Thats because the N650u uses the plustek.conf file, not the cannon630u.conf file. You'll need to open /usr/local/etc/sane.d/plustek.conf and edit it for a usb scanner.

Hi Aussie

I modified /usr/local/etc/sane.d/plustek.conf and looks like this:

# For parport devices use the parport section
#[parport]
#device /dev/pt_drv
# 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
device /dev/usb/scanner

Again "sane-find-scanner" finds the scanner, but "scanimage -L" doesn't.

My "/etc/modules.conf" looks like this:

probeall scsi_hostadapter advansys ide-scsi
probeall usb-interface usb-uhci
above snd-emu10k1 snd-pcm-oss
alias sound-slot-0 snd-emu10k1

alias char-major-40 pt_drv
pre-install pt_drv modprobe -k parport
options pt_drv lampoff=180 warmup=15 usb lOffonEnd=0 mov=0 slowIO=1

the last line does not look right ....

thanks for hanging in there!

Thats because it's set up for a parallel post scanner, you need to change it to use the correct usb modules.

Aussie, this is worse than pulling teeth!!

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?

libsane.so.1 is part of sane-backends so you'll have it installed already, try just doing "modprobe scanner" without the options and post the output of "lsmod".
