HowTos

My Genius ColorPage Vivid4 USB scanner worked acceptably under Windows, so it was the time to get it working with SANE.

Running (as root) sane-find-scanner, it said:

found USB scanner (vendor=0x0458, product=0x2014 [600DPI USB Scanner], chip=GT-6816) at libusb:003:004

However, it does not run with xsane just out-of-the-box:

No devices found

The SANE page for these category of scanners is www.meier-geinitz.de/sane/gt68xx-backend, and the important part of what's written there is:

Now, where to find ccd68861.fw firmware?

Between Linux Mint 18 and Fedora 24, we reckon it’s exciting times in the Linux world. With the exception and onset of the boring world of vanilla Ubuntu releases, Linux feels reinvigorated and fresh once again. Jump on board, because it can only get better from here. Read more
