Bug Description


I found some bugs concerning /proc/bus/usb whch have been closed whit won't fix, but I am on a real problem which cannot seems to have a workaround.

description :
I have a scanner (samsung clx2160) which fully worked on ubuntu 9.04 by using LInux Unified Driver and doing these simple manipulations:
$ sudo mkdir -p /dev/bus/usb/.usbfs
$ sudo usbfs "" /dev/bus/usb/.usbfs -obusmode=0700,devmode=0600,listmode=0644
$ sudo ln -s .usbfs/devices /dev/bus/usb/devices
$ sudo mount --rbind /dev/bus/usb /proc/bus/usb

On Ubuntu 9.10 and 10.04b2 It doesn't work anymore.
I've not found any workaround to access the scanner

It is a complete regression and the only solution I could apply is a multiboot with Ubuntu 9.0 but It is really an ugly solution.

I bought this multifonction printer because It fully worked on Linux and because It worked on Ubuntu.
