Hi there,

I got it, but having problmes with the artec backend.

It seem that the BRIGHTNESS and some other options are not always supported
by some backends.
I think that, if the options are left to '0' you should not try to set them.
I've experimented with "bypassing" the BRIGHTNESS from the backend and works
But that sould be changed from the "frontend" which in this case is TWAIN.

I have similar problems with scanner.cgi script.
