Version 0.0.5 found

You can get the latest version from Andreas Beck's page. Kai Nacke is the new maintainer.

As far as I can tell, the changes from 0.0.4 to 0.0.5 are the same as my patch below with the additional corrections to remove the compiler warnings that I ignored when compiling 0.0.4. If you already installed scanner.h and scanio.h in a global include directory, you need not replace with the 0.0.5 versions, as my patched versions are identical.

Version 0.0.4 patch

The latest driver for the Logitech scanman hand held scanners that I could find is version 0.0.4. And I found it needs a patch to work on my RedHat 4 (2.0.18-6 kernel) system. You mileage, of course, may vary.

Patch instructions:

  1. unzip and untar logiscan-0.0.4.tar.gz
  2. copy logiscan-0.0.4.patch to the logiscan-0.0.4 directory.
  3. in the logiscan-0.0.4 directory do 'patch < logiscan-0.0.4.patch' to patch two of the files in the src directory.
  4. Follow the instructions in the README file.

You will get some warnings during compiling, I ignored them and it still seemed to work.

I found that this driver module works fine with Pbmscan 1.2 without recompiling. Although I got a much smaller executable when I did recompile.

Thanks to (Gerhard Siegesmund) for putting me on the track of this driver. I used the great Linux Archive Search page to find it after Gerhard gave me a name to go on.

The original location of the driver is here.
