Has anyone out there managed to get
Red Hat 8.0 or 7.3 to recognize a USB
The Epson 1250 is suppose to work 
with Sane 1.0.9.  Red Hat 7.3 uses
Sane 1.0.7 but it proved impossible to
remove 1.0.7 to the satisfaction of
1.0.9. I used the Package uninstaller
and then zapped files using the command
line and somehow, there's still 1.0.7 files
out there somewhere. So I installed
Red Hat 8.0 on an empty partition.
Xsane failed to find the sanner. I edited
/etc/sane.d/epson.conf to recognize
/dev/usb/sanner0 but it didn't help.
   The Epson 1250 is an old scanner.
I'm rather disappointed that, even now
I can't use it with Linux.
