[Bug 1062617] Re: No network scanner autodetection by backend kodakaio


Paul, thank you for the reply.  I am glad to hear you still have access
to the hardware.  I don't understand why you think working on this bug
is still worth the effort when you believe that a similar problem is
likely to exist in avahi.  Can you elaborate?  It would be great if you
were able to confirm or refute that suspicion, too.

  No network scanner autodetection by backend kodakaio

Status in sane-backends package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  sane-backends 1.0,.23 in ubuntu 12.10 has a new backend kodakaio for kodak aio printers
  The backend can autodetect network connected scanners using functions in cups.
  The auto detect code is only compiled if cups.h is found at compile time.
  It seems likely that cups.h was not found at compile time when the package was built?

  If I compile and install kodakaio myself, the autodetect works with ubuntu 12.10
  Can anyone confirm this diagnosis?
  Is it possible to compile sane-backends with cups installed when building this package?
  Or is it necessary for me to always compile the autodetect code and check for the presence of cups at run time?
