Thank you for that. I did get it to work under Linux using xsane and genesys
driver. Details of how to do it are here
My comment explains that I was using an old Ubuntu with a probably-too-old
genesys driver. A compile from source of version 1.0.26git worked. Some
have success under Ubuntu using a PPA, details here
In short, it's likely that most recent distro versions use a new enough
driver version that it works out of the box. Thanks for the offer of help,
maybe someone can confirm that is it definitely supported with recent
Does this scanner (Lide 220) works in 16.04?!!
