Usb Scanner


I've been using slackware for a while now but only recently have started to use USB devices, being farely simple in windows, however no so in linux. I can easily get them workin in redhat however im not running redhat :P

sane will not find the usb devices, i've load the usb modules so it should find it. im not sure if i have set it up correctly

Welcome to LQ, Optics.

If you're not sure if you've set it up correctly, then tell us how you have it setup

Ok well, im chaning this post all together now.

i amused to much of slackware being auto configed like in rh, my bad.

so after RTFM properly i found out wat was wrong, not mounting the usbfs and had to set it up so that sane could find it
