Scanner (here: Mustek Bearpaw 1200 CS), Scanning and file size reduction under Debian Jessie

Posted 06-05-2015 at 08:44 AM by jere21

Save A1fw.usb to /usr/share/sane/gt68xx/ and start scanning with sane.

More general instructions for installing a scanner:
  1. Your user should be in group "scanner" and sane must be installed. In my case I have:
    ii  libsane:amd64         1.0.24-13    amd64  API library for scanners
    ii  libsane-common        1.0.24-13    all    API library for scanners -- documentation and support files
    ii  libsane-extras:amd64     amd64

firmware /path/to/ScanWise/Drivers/Snape50.bin
That's it.

I have been using an HP ScanJet 4100C with my linux computer for a number of years. I primarily use it to scan old pictures into GIMP for restoration or enhancement. Even though I always kept the outside of the glass clean, I have noticed in the last year that the inside of the glass was developing a cloudy residue. I finally decided to do something about it. Before getting started, I locked the scan head using the sliding green button on the bottom of the scanner. If you open the cover, there...
