Getting a Scanner to work in Linux

“The 3050 has a sheet-feed scanner. Yeah, el cheapo, it’s what I
could afford at the time. Here is where I get annoyed. My main
workstation is Debian Lenny, and the darned thing does not set up
scanners bloodlessly, you have to jump through mondo hoops. Last
time I looked it was the 21st century, did something happen and I
got sent back to 1998? Though I recall having to jump through the
same hoops on Kubuntu last year on the same PC.”
