    hi guys,
    so i converted my girlfriend to linux (i am sure you all wanted/needed
    to know this). and now she is in the state where she wouldn't passs
    debian for anything, but i can't get her scanner to work. it's one of
    those home multimedia jokes, scanjet 2100c through usb. she is running
    the 2.4.3 kernel with the scanner.o module loaded. however,
    /dev/scanner does not exist (what major/minor would it be, and a char
    device i assume?) and:

    orange:/proc/bus/usb> /usr/local/bin/scanimage -L

    No scanners were identified. If you were expecting something
    different, check that the scanner is plugged in, turned on and
    detected by the find-scanner tool (if appropriate). Please read the
    documentation which came with this software (README, FAQ, manpages).

    but the usb system knows the scanner:

    (from /proc/bus/usb/devices:)

    T: Bus=01 Lev=01 Prnt=01 Port=00 Cnt=01 Dev#= 5 Spd=12 MxCh= 0
    D: Ver= 1.00 Cls=00(>ifc ) Sub=00 Prot=00 MxPS= 8 #Cfgs= 1
    P: Vendor=03f0 ProdID=0505 Rev= 1.00
    S: Manufacturer=Hewlett-Packard
    S: Product=HP ScanJet 2100C
    C:* #Ifs= 1 Cfg#= 1 Atr=40 MxPwr= 0mA
    I: If#= 0 Alt= 0 #EPs= 3 Cls=ff(vend.) Sub=00 Prot=ff Driver=(none)
    E: Ad=81(I) Atr=03(Int.) MxPS= 1 Ivl= 16ms
    E: Ad=82(I) Atr=02(Bulk) MxPS= 64 Ivl= 0ms
    E: Ad=03(O) Atr=02(Bulk) MxPS= 64 Ivl= 0ms

    now, i didn't see the 2100C as a SANE supported device, but it
    standard HP...

    does anyone out there have experience with this? or with usb scanners
    in general?
