Well, back again
Linux got the problem controlling the power-outlet to the USB devices...
I bought a powered USB hub, and that didn't work, then my friend came along with her laptop where she has Winows installed on two, she has Mint on it too, so it was then possible to check if my scanner was deffekt...
It wasn't - i worked fine under Windwos, but not under linux, linux does not find it.. and it's a problem on Ubuntu as well..
Where do i go from here ??
Anyone else who got problems with USB powered devices ??
