Comment 20 for bug 229343

I'm pretty sure that I had already done that. Anyway, like I said in my
previous posts I've already switced to Debian where everything is working
perfectly. So I'm not switching back to Ubuntu at this point. Allowing a bug
in the distribution to remain unfixed for well over a year that disables
your scanner is not acceptable policy for me.
