I've got an Epson Perfection 1650 scanner, which has great linux
support. I had it working under FC2 no problem. Being new to debian,
I'm having some trouble figuring out where info about the scanner is
found. Xsane does not find the scanner as it is. The file
/dev/usb/scanner0 does not exist (as it does in Red Hat). In Red Hat,
I would make that file executable to all users, and then it pretty
much worked. I've tried doing sane-find-scanner but it says that's an
unknown command. Sane is installed -- not sure why sane-find-scanner
is not available. Any insight would be great.
