After much ado, I got my scanner to scan. Not under xsane, but from a terminal with scanimage.
It put it's output to standard output, which happened to be the terminal in which I called it. So I got a screen full of gibberish.
Anyone know how to change the standard output of scanimage to get it to scan to a file, maybe a jpg??
Xsane (v 0.89) will not work. It can't find my scanner.
Thanks anyway!

How about scanimage > somefile.jpg? I don't know what format scanimage uses natively, so you may have to change .jpg to something else, then use the GIMP to change the image type.
