After upgrading my gentoo system, I discovered a problem with one of my new mediawiki installations:
No CSS anymore!
That’s frustrating. Looking with my browser tools, I see, that the load.php from mediawiki returns nothing. Searching around and found only one place which helped:
https://bugs.php.net/bug.php?id=64836 <– the bug entry on php.
Now I tried to downgrade my gentoo package sys-apps/file back to 5.11 and restarting my apache … viola … it works.
Now the load.php works again and it looks like, that this has nothing to do with mediawiki itself.
Today I make my Epson scanner perfection VT10 running under gentoo.
What I did:
- Emerge the iscan packages:
USE="X gimp jpeg png tiff -doc" emerge -av media-gfx/iscan
emerge -av media-gfx/iscan-data
Create a backup of the /etc/sane.dll/dll.conf and create a new one with only one line:
mv /etc/sane.dll/dll.conf /etc/sane.dll/dll.conf.org
echo "epkowa" >> /etc/sane.dll/dll.conf
Changing the /etc/sane.d/epkowa.conf configuration to match the Perfection VT10.
changing/uncomment in /etc/sane.d/epkowa.conf following lines (nothing more!):
usb 0x04b8 0x012d
Now I need some binaries for the scanner and some libs. They can be downloaded here:
I opened the archive and extracted the libs libesint66* to /usr/lib/iscan and also the /usr/share/iscan/esfw66.bin
Now I need to register the libraries and scanner binary to iscan:
iscan-registry --add interpreter usb 0x04b8 0x012d /usr/lib/iscan/libesint66.so /usr/share/iscan/esfw66.bin
The next step was to create a file called „interpreter“ in /usr/share/iscan-data/interpreter and adding the lib and binary:
echo "interpreter usb 0x04b8 0x012d /usr/lib/iscan/libesint66 /usr/share/iscan/esfw66.bin" >> /usr/share/iscan-data/interpreter
After that, I was able to start iscan, select the first entry from the founded scanners and start to scan 🙂
