    Well, I have installed sane with the prefix /pack-linux/sane-1.0.2 and
    am already using LD_LIBRARY_PATH for sane to find its libraries. xcam
    and xscanimage do startup (no missing libraries) which proves sane is
    able to find its labries. I have not installed sane using rpm
    packages, so leftover libraries should not be present. I do wonder
    about some of the libraries called e.g. libsane-hp.s=.1. The = I have
    never seen in libraries before.

    xcam and xscanimage still cannot find my scanner, while find-scanner
    has no trouble. Something must be wrong somewhere.

    sane-1.0.1m (or was it f) did work, so maybe I should downgrade in
    order to use my scanner.
