Finally, one of my emails to Acer got the answer I was looking for :
Subject: RE: Support for Scanner Acer S2W 3300U ("Scan to Web")

Thanks for using acer.
Please download the driver for Linux in following link.
CMP Service Center
I downloaded the tarball, compiled it (well, the script did it !) and after a
few months fighting with my scanner, it _worked_.
Just changed from egcs-2.91.66 to gcc-2.96, and not only compiled but worked
just like it was supposed to be.
Preview, scan in color&b/w, etc.
[nuno@localhost nuno]$ scanimage -L
device `colorusb:/dev/usb/scanner0' is a Color FlatbedScanner21 flatbed
Sorry if you already knew that Acer was making available a "backend?" (I
didn't find it in the sane/usb documention, links or mailing list archive)
but for me this was a "Finally I can use my scanner !".
Thank's to USB & SANE & ACER & all the other guys !
P.S. - The first message I sended to this mailing list was CC'd to usb devel
and Acer, but didn't arrive here. (My other email address was not subscribed
to the list)
