I can. As many other users, I just happen to have one. This scanner is 
perfectly supported in Linux by open source drivers, that's why I bought 
it and never had problems with it.
In this case, the problem is in Feisty - not the scanner, nor Linux in 


Each Ubuntu release has its regressions. In Edgy, some webcam stopped 
working. They work now in Feisty, however now some scanners don't work 
anymore. Gutsy might solve the scanner problem, while introducing 
another regression.
