Bug Description


I currently can't use scanimage with my HP Scanjet 8200C



they describe that this bug came with 1.0.22 and did not exist in 1.0.21.

Meanwhile 1.0.23 is available, maybe this would help.

This bug still exists in Mint 18

Xsane generates the error: "Failed to open device 'avision:libusb:009:003': Operation not supported"

The only work around I've found is to us vuescan (commercial software). vuescan even supports transparency scanning, something the sane driver never did, even when it worked.

I should mention, that I have this problem on the Scanjet 8200, I do not have the 8200c
