Mustek 1200 scanexpress ub

Postby gollum1971 on Thu Aug 09, 2007 8:03 pm

Hi All

Im trying to get my mustek scanner working
Now I have goggled it and tried download firmware and placing it in the directory for sane.
Anyway doing some probing I have found that its not listed in my fstab and I have libusb installed

Anyone got any ideas?

Cheers Aiden

Scanners should not be listed in fstab, so it's correct not to find it there. I've seen this scanner listed as not supported by sane but according to this thread it seems possible to use it

Note that some have success and others not
Also
Code: Select all
sane-find-scanner -v

should tell you the device id of the scanner, something like
Code: Select all
found USB scanner (vendor=0x05d8, product=0x4002, chip=GT-6801) at libusb:002:00 4
which is the output from someones Mustek 1200

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
