18 What about sysrescue USB stick? Just plug the scanner in and and see if
19 it shows up on the lsusb list? That should work even if I can't scan right?
21 I have a old backup computer but it is like three years out of date and
22 it was never set up to have a scanner attached. I'm thinking it would
23 be fairly useless without a serious update which would not be fun.
25 I have a thought. I could take it to my brothers and see if it shows up
26 there. He runs Kubuntu but if lsusb lists it, it is a start. Right?
28 Thanks.
