Thread: Driver for an old scanner ?

    Default Driver for an old scanner ?

    Hi. I have a Genius ColorPage-Vivid Pro II Film scanner. It is very old parallel port scanner (> 10 yrs) but still going strong under XP. I looked around for Linux drivers but can't seems to find any. Can anyone point me to the right direction ?

    Doing a search at SANE SANE Supported Scanners - Search Engine I found your scanner listed as supported by the current SANE distribution.

    I must be blind. The DVD comes with correct drivers for my scanner. I am very impressed as my scanner is more than 10 years old ! All is sweet.

    Cheers
