I'm using a Fujitsu ScanSnap S1300i.
sudo as a temporary workaround to minimise any permissions problems:
$ sudo sane-find-scanner found USB scanner (vendor=0x04c5 [FUJITSU], product=0x128d [ScanSnap S1300i]) at libusb:001:004
So I edited
/etc/sane.d/epjitsu.conf and added:
firmware /usr/share/sane/epjitsu/1300i_0D12.nal usb 0x04c5 0x128d
1300i_0D12.nal from a Windows install into
/usr/share/sane/epjitsu/. (Actually I copied all the
*.nal drivers, just in case it needed one of the others.)
$ sudo scanimage -L device `epjitsu:libusb:001:004' is a FUJITSU ScanSnap S1300i scanner $ sudo scanimage scanimage: output is not a file, exiting
gscan2pdf all advance the document feed by a couple of centimeters, but then the feed halts and the fronted returns an I/O error of some kind.
So SANE seems to recognize the scanner and has some basic communication with it (the paper advances a couple of centimeters), but it doesn't scan.
Any suggestions about something I've missed out or how to get a proper scan output?
$ scanimage -V scanimage (sane-backends) 1.0.23; backend version 1.0.23 $ sudo skanlite QDBusConnection: session D-Bus connection created before QCoreApplication. Application may misbehave
If I run
sudo scanimage -v (I accidentally typed lowercase V when I was trying to obtain the version!) after the document has been advanced a couple of centimeters by
sudo skanlite, then the
scanimage command forces a complete document feed -- but no scan.
