1) the aic7xxx driver works for the "AVA-2902E/I" card that I got
with my microtek X6-EL... so that's good. no driver hacking
needed, to my relief.
2) I can see the scanner, and Bernd, for your collection, here's
the exact make/model/rev:
Scanner attributes from device structure
Vendor Name: ' '
Model Name: 'scanner 636EL '
Model Code: 0x98 (ScanMaker X6EL)
Device Type Code: 0x06 (Scanner),
Scanner type: Flatbed scanner
Supported options: Automatic document feeder: Yes
Transparency media adapter: Yes
Auto paper detecting: No
Advanced picture system: No
Scan button: Yes
... I am using SANE pre-1.04, built with no hacks, patches, or
other interference. the only module in the dll conf file is
microtek2. I can get scanimage to control the scanner (hooray!)
but ... my previews are very green.
My first 100dpi scan was kind of green also, but not as green as
the preview. The second one (a photo with lots of blue in it)
looks OK, although the aspect ratio seems slightly altered...
A sepia-toned picture came out aggressively red/green-ish. Scanning
picture of the bright blue rudder of a boat on shorings it seems to
reproduce the blue area ok, but the gray asphalt in the background
is red and green (?)
In the preview window, blue is consistently replaced by red
and everything else is quite green. I don't seem to be seeing
differences from one scan to another. Ignoring the green
preview for the moment, in real scans it looks like where there
is gray or other neutral tones, the blue component gets
dropped or diminished, but where there is really obviously
blue content, it is scanned as blue...
Is it now time to try the latest microtek2 backend?
PS three cheers for the SANE crew and the contributor of xscanimage!
after resolving my little SCSI card difficult, everything else was
"Now Easy" -- congratulations, this is not a simple software package
to have integrated so well.
