Is the Canon fb630p scanner useable in shrike?
|[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]|
Hello, a friend of mine installed shrike on his PC. Everything was detected but the scanner. The strange thing is that installing the sane rpms yeelds a sane-canon_pp.5 man page, but not a canon_pp.conf file. What needs to be done to make that scanner work in shrike? Just uncommenting the canon_pp line in the main sane conf file won't do anything if there is no driver, now will it? I have found online this project: http://canon-fb330p.sourceforge.net/ I thought to compile and install that driver for my friend, but: it wants libieee1284 (library for parallel ports). configure fails like this: checking for ieee1284_wait_status in -lieee1284... no Get the latest libieee1284 from http://cyberelk.net/tim/data/libieee1284/ configure: error: FATAL: Failed to find required libieee1284 version (0.1.5 or newer). and the only ieee1284 files in shrike are /usr/src/linux-2.4.20-20.9/drivers/parport/ieee1284.c /usr/src/linux-2.4.20-20.9/drivers/parport/ieee1284_ops.c So, how can we make this scanner work in shrike? Can we just mess with the sane conf files (which ones) or do we have to rebuild the driver in some other way, since (afaict) in shrike there is no separate ieee1284 library? Would a recompile of libieee1284 sources mess the system up? TIA, Marco -- Shrike-list mailing list Shrike-list@xxxxxxxxxx https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/shrike-list
