I was finally able to connect to avasys.jp and downloaded and installed
iscan-data_1.13.0-1_all.deb the programs appeared to install correctly.
I then ran
sane-find-scanner and got back:
found USB scanner (vendor=0x04b8, product=0x012d) at libusb:001:003
I then ran
lsusb and got back:
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub Bus 001 Device 003: ID 04b8:012d Seiko Epson Corp. Perfection V10/V100 (GT-S600/F650) Bus 001 Device 004: ID 03f0:4817 Hewlett-Packard Bus 002 Device 002: ID 093a:2510 Pixart Imaging, Inc. Optical Mouse the avasys image scan manual instructed me to run chmod 0666 /proc/bus/usb/001/003 which returned chmod: cannot access `/proc/bus/usb/001/003': No such file or directory
In 12.04 no such directory does exist. 12.04 appears to deal with usb in another way.
What must I do to get the usb port 001/003 recognized by xsane and sane as the port where the scanner can be located? What must I do to continue installing the scanner?
