My distro does not yet have a backend for my scanner, but the last release of SANE does. So I downloaded the source and installed.

Scanning goes fairly well except that for some reason at the end of a scan I get an error message:

"reset high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address xx"

After that I can't scan anything until I unplug and replug the ( USB ) scanner.

Since I expect my distro to pick up the latest sane version within a few months, for now all I would like to do is reset the scanner so it can do the next page.

Any suggestions on how to do this?

  • @hotel Since this only involves the kernel, and usb kernal modules, I see no need to mention the distro. – HandyGandy Sep 22 '10 at 8:59

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is an ancient, localized problem that has surely been overtaken by events, likely no longer reproducible, not solvable without OP input, and it has been abandoned, so no input is available. – fixer1234 Mar 29 '17 at 7:16
