Gosh...two fast replies saying that it didn't work for me either. Well,
confession time. It did work for me, ONCE.
Earlier this week I compilied sane 0.70. The configure program
complained about no gamma_curve_new (or sometthing like that) so it did
not compile the xscanimage. However, I when to the frontend directory
and did a make xscanimage. Then, from the frontend directory I typed
xscanimage and all worked. It scanned fine! Flushed with success, I
copied the xscanimage to my /usr/local/bin where it not longer worked (I
handn't realized that this was a bash file...). So, I deleted xscanimage
and tried make again. The funny thing is that I can no longer get
xscanimage to compile under 0.70. But, checking the web site I found
that there was a 0.71...so, again, flushed with anticipation, I grabbed
that. And now I can compile, but not run.
Something very serious is wrong here fellows!
