My scanner isn't detected by Xsane.

Thank you for taking the time to report this issue and helping to make Ubuntu better. Examining the information you have given us, this does not appear to be a bug report so we are closing it and converting it to a question in the support tracker. We appreciate the difficulties you are facing, but it would make more sense to raise problems you are having in the support tracker at if you are uncertain if they are bugs. For help on reporting bugs, see

as u can see here:
it is not supported by sane, yet.

for your itunes see this:

for tom tom home see:

if u might now ask yourself why is linux so crappy and not supporting these things u should better ask the companies producing those things, why they make their stuff propietory and or do not support linux.

thats the sad side of linux/freedom ;

Can you help with this problem?
