I was given an Agfa 1212p Snapscan.
Without a power supply.
So, first off, can anybody confirm that this unit requires
16V DC to supply approx 0.9-1.0 amp?
Which I will make. No problems thus far.
The driver for this unit, however, is something else.
It appears (from a search of the Web) that Agfa do
not greatly care for Linux, to the extent that they
will not release any information whereby a driver
could be written.
I have a feeling that someone was trying to reverse
engineer a driver, although this would probably be
a time-consuming project.
Does anyone know whether a driver for this unit
exists? If ir doesnt, I may have to conect it to a
And I don't want that.
Any help etc.,
