Installing sane scanner software
Hi there

I am trying to install Sane on SUSE 9.2. Apparently this supports my Optipro 4800p

I have downloaded and unpacked:
sane-backends-1.0.14.tar.gz sane-frontends-1.0.12.tar.gz xsane-0.93.tar.gz

I did
make install
with backends as in manual.

When I then try to install the frontends and do ./configure it tells me
checking for SANE - version >= 1.0.0... no
*** The sane-config script installed by SANE could not be found
*** If SANE was installed in PREFIX, make sure PREFIX/bin is in
*** your path, or set the SANE_CONFIG environment variable to the
*** full path to sane-config.
ERROR: Couldn't find SANE libraries (sane-backends). Possible reasons:
- sane-backends isn't installed (install sane-backends before
- the SANE header files aren't installed (if you installed
SANE as RPM make sure you also included the sane-devel RPM)
- the SANE libraries can't be found because /usr/local/lib/ isn't
searched by the dynamic linker (see INSTALL for details)

I have checked my file /etc/
It includes /usr/local/lib. Then I have done "ldconfig".
Same error message as above.

I have also tried
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib/

./configure --prefix=/usr/local/lib

Also sane_config is in /usr/local/bin

Anyone any ideas?

Before you try compiling sane yourself, I suggest to try the rpm from packman (0.1.15). Have a look at the sticky thread about YaST update sources on how to use packman as a YaST source.
