Hi andreas

Sorry, missed the debug line out of the script. Add this line just after the set SANE_DEBUG_DLL=255 line
   set SANE_DEBUG_SANEI_USB=255

Hopefully we will then get some debug info to work with.

Hi Martin

I think you have summed up correctly: the epson is not yet supported and the hp needs a closed source plugin to work with hplip/hpaio.

The good news is that there is a backend being developed for the epson  :-)

Hi Martin

I think you are waiting for a release of sane that includes the utushi backend for the epson scanner.

Maybe you can persuade HP to open source the plugins that some HP scanners (including the ScanJet Pro 2000 S1) and printers need to work with the hplip package.


Sorry to not be more helpful

Hi Dariusz

To get a Canon MG7550 scanner working with Tame/2 I used the following steps:-

1] Identify a  scanner with similar capabilities

2] Copy scanner.dat to scanner.dat.ini

3] Open scanner.dat.ini in an INIEditor

4] Copy Application of scanner identified in 1] above to a new Application name - usually Make/Model

5] Edit key A to reflect the .conf file used and scanner Make/model

6] Save and Exit INIEditor

7] Copy scanner.dat.ini to scanner.dat

8] Test with Tame/2


Hopefully the above will work for you.

Hi Martin

Looking through your latest debugoutput.txt it seems the scanner is recognised and opened, see line 1729, but something goes wrong after that.

Does the scanner also have wireless connectivity? - If "Yes" turn that off while trying to setup usb.

You probably need Paul or Sylvan to look through the debug file as there is more chance of them spotting a problem.

Hi Martin

Looking through your debugoutput.txt file it looks as though sane/scanimage does not have support for the epson scanner as both epsonds and espon2 sections show a list of pci ids which those backends support and 0x04b8/0x1135 is not listed.

You could try adding the pci ids to the epsonds and epson2 .conf files # USB section eg epson2.conf:-

# epson2.conf
#
# here are some examples for how to configure the EPSON2 backend

# SCSI
scsi EPSON
# for the GT-6500:
#scsi "EPSON SC"

# Parallel port
#pio 0x278
#pio 0x378
#pio 0x3BC

# USB
usb 0x04b8 0x1135

# For libusb support for unknown scanners use the following command
# usb <product ID> <device ID>
# e.g.:
# usb 0x4b8 0x110

# Network
#
# net 192.168.1.123
net autodiscovery

Hi andreas

Which version of libusb10.dll is installed? - the current release of libusb1 is 1.0.21-2 plus the libusb1-legacy-0 release 1.0.16-2

Some debugging tips from the 1.0.27 readme.os2 :-

requires the following environment variable set so that Sane can find it's configuration files:
set sane_config_dir=?:\sane\etc\sane.d
where ? = drive letter involved

set SANE_DEBUG_SANEI_USB=255 - turns on debug information for the USB interface


I suggest you create a simple cmd file to set variables and test scanner eg:-

rem scan.cmd
set sane_config_dir=j:\programs\sane\etc\sane.d
set beginlibpath=j:\programs\sane\lib;
set SANE_DEBUG_DLL=255
scanimage -L 2> debugL.log

 (change drive letters to suit your system)

Hopefully when run in the scanimage directory will create debugL.log which can be examined in the editor to try and spot where things go wrong.

Pete

Hi andreas

Not using a usb scanner myself but would take a guess that you need to check all the usb support files are in place and at the right level. Hopefully someone with a working usb scanner will let you know what versions of libusb etc are required - you are using the sane 1.0.27 or later package?

Hi Martin

Do any new drives appear in the Drives folder when you attach a scanner?

Hi andreas

Support for the LiDE 210 is shown as complete see http://www.sane-project.org/sane-mfgs.html#Z-CANON

Try using the following command to see if your scanner is found

   scanimage -L

Hi Martin

You seem to have 2 scanners that do not appear to be supported in either current release http://www.sane-project.org/sane-supported-devices.html or current development http://www.sane-project.org/lists/sane-mfgs-cvs.html

Looks like all the Epson L series supported to date use the epson2.conf but you may need a later sane than we have available...

The HP ScanJet Pro 2000 S1 is supported by hplip 3.18.12 but will probably not work with OS/2 port of sane as it also requires a HP (closed source) plugin see https://developers.hp.com/hp-linux-imaging-and-printing/supported_devices/index


Strange that you get a trap in os2dasd when trying to access a scanner... Possibly something wrong with usb configuration or a wrong level of driver/support file somewhere?

Hi Martin

I had a Canon LiDE20 working with sane and Tame/2 (sane 1.0.27 seems to be the package I was using). This was a while back but I think the scanner used the plustek.conf file and setup within Tame/2 was fairly automatic.

HP scanners should work as long as the scanner model is listed in the models.dat file supplied with the hplip package and HPscan provides a basic frontend that works with the required hpaio: uri  - https://hobbes.nmsu.edu/?dir=%2F&stype=all&sort=type_name&search=hpscan

Programming / Re: REXX: RxStartSession, what is wrong with this call?
« on: January 04, 2021, 02:06:45 am »
Hi Dariusz

I am *Not* a rexx expert and do not seem to have any information on RxStartSession apart from reading somewhere that it is part of the RXU addons for rexx. Just wondering about apostrophes and comma and whether your line would work when rewritten as

   'g:\util\misc\oo.exe /a v:\photo "DEFAULTVIEW=XVIEW;"','C','F',,'O','A'

Hi mauro

Sounds like you need to run the mmos2 installer, \os2\minstal.exe, to install uniaud as the sound driver.

Games / Re: Tux Football not running
« on: December 18, 2020, 09:19:56 pm »
Hi Martin

The current SDL12 RPM package does not contain most of the required sdl*.dll files

I unzipped the dll files from the sdl package recommended in the readme.os2 file into the same directory as tuxfootball.exe

The game now almost starts by double clicking tuxfootball.exe; the window appears onscreen with 2 lines of text, 2nd line being something about "rendering pitch" and then locks the system requiring a reboot.


Regards

Pete
