[SOLVED] Mustek 6000P - problems with SANE..

Postby kanzibonobo » Tue Oct 21, 2008 10:40 am


The idea with creating a new file in /etc/udev/rules.d/45-libsane.rules
was great, thx.

Works like a charm. Yes, it is slow indeed, but I use it very rare. However, I'll have to scan 8 docs till Monday. Glad it works :)

The parallel port is terribly slow, scanning takes 10 times or more as long as with USB
You may find some ideas in this topic about USB scanners
It's possible to adapt for the parallel port
I also see that you have written Mustek both as Mustek and mustek - don't know if it's right or wrong
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
