My scanner Canoscan LIDE 100 only works under windows. My main o/s is ubuntu. Whenever I have to scan, I have to boot to windows.
On the ubuntu host I have a virtualbox - windows xp guest, which works great (faster than the usual windows :).
Is there a way I can get the scanner work under my virtual-windows? But the basic question is, can the virtualization be used to work around the hardware driver issues?
