I have the Fujitsu ScanSnap S1300. The software it comes with for scanning photographs is horrendous. I have been online all day (my head is killing me) reading up on TWAIN SANE and how to get my system to fully recognize the USB scanner. In terminal, I got the vendor and product ID. I followed the instructions on editing the epjistdu.conf file to recognize the scanner (apparently epjitsu.conf and not fujitsu.conf is needed for Fujitsu scanners). Learning further I placed the appropriate firmware file (300_0C00.nal) that is referenced in the .conf file. In terminal, using "scanimage -L", the scanner IS FINALLY recognized. However, it is not recognized in "Image Capture", "PhotoShop CS5" and "Vuescan". I'm going CRAZY as I have to scan 1000+ photo's for my family for the holiday and the ScanSnap software is so limited, scanned images are darkened no matter now much I tweak its settings. I need a third party program that will scan the pics well so i can avoid Photoshopping 1000+ pics. Please please any one with any info I am desperate for help, I'll even PAY.
