Is it Spring Already?

Posted by khk

It is November and somehow my magnolia tree is not aware of that fact… I took this picture last night. I hope the tree is not wasting too much energy with all these buds.

  1. I was born in Rochester, grew up in Sea Breeze when it had it’s own post office and was a registered sea plane base.
    I recently did a urpmi.update and now I cannot use my epson perfection 1640su scanner. I have only one of each: libsane1, sane backends, and xsane installed. The scanner was always detected and worked well before the update. any assistance will be very much appreciated.
    [george@localhost ~]$ sane-find-scanner
    found USB scanner (vendor=0x04b8, product=0x010a) at libusb:002:002
    # Your USB scanner was (probably) detected. It may or may not be supported by
    # SANE. Try scanimage -L and read the backend’s manpage.

    [george@localhost ~]$ scanimage -L
    No scanners were identified. If you were expecting something different,
    check that the scanner is plugged in, turned on and detected by the
    sane-find-scanner tool (if appropriate). Please read the documentation

    [george@localhost ~]$ lsusb
    bash: lsusb: command not found

    [george@localhost ~]$ scanimage -f
    scanimage: no SANE devices found

    [george@localhost ~]$ /sbin/lsusb
    bash: /sbin/lsusb: No such file or directory

    [root@localhost george]# lsusb
    Bus 002 Device 002: ID 04b8:010a Seiko Epson Corp. Perfection 1640SU
    Bus 002 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
    Bus 003 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
    Bus 005 Device 001: ID 0000:0000

    Bus 001 Device 003: ID 058f:9254 Alcor Micro Corp. Hub
    Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000

    when I turn on the scanner the icon appears on the desktop with the following:

    [george@localhost ~]$ scanimage
    scanimage: no SANE devices found
    [george@localhost ~]$ su
    [root@localhost george]# scanimage
    # SANE data follows
    424 585

    I figured out how to use kde as root. there were some dire warnings, so I did not persist any farther than to see that all of the proper epson scanner control panels did, indeed, appear when scanimage was run as root.
    Will you help to show me how to change permissions?
    Thank you.
    Respectfully yours,

  2. Not quite the comment that I expected… I sent you a reply about your Sane problem via email.
