If you've managed to make sane-0.74 work with your parallel port scanner, I'd
like to hear from you. I've been trying to make xscanimage work with my
Microtek V310 scanner. All I can make it do is complain "Failed to open
device `microtek2:/dev/lpt0': Invalid argument." I've tried using "microtek"
in place of "microtek2" and "lpa0" in place of "lpt0". In all combinations, I
get a comparable error message. This happens whether I run xscanimage as
myself or as root.
Clearly, I've not configured something but I don't know what. The
documentation is helpful but biased toward Linux. I don't even know what to
call the scanner device file or how to build it.
