    Hello I have I epson 1240USB scanner whats its compatible with
    1200 USB scanner.

    To use with SuSE 6.4, I follow the instruccions in Karl Heinz
    Kremer's website, and it works perfectly.

    In SuSE 7.0, the only than I have to do It's a very simple
    modprobre scanner vendor=xXXXX product=xYYYY
    And I's works perfectly.

    The xXXXXXX and xYYYYY, are in cat /proc/bus/usb/devices.

    Good Luck.
