It's way past my bedtime, but I can't stand to leave something unfinished. I had the devil's own time installing the drivers necessary to make my "new" (used) scanner work.
The installer CD that came with the scanner, a CanoScan LiDE 30, claimed to work with Mac OSX native, but it LIED. I found drivers online, but that alone didn't work. I needed to install the Toolbox, as well. So I downloaded and installed the Toolbox. And then when I tried to scan, it told me, "scanner plug-in was not found." The Canon website didn't say anything about the plug-in, and when I clicked on their FAQ, it didn't take me anywhere.
As it happens, the scanner's "driver" is really the plug-in. So I plugged it into the Toolbox, rebooted, and . . . finally . . . am able to scan. Hooray! Life is good!
So here is my first scan, with my new scanner.
Forgive the low image quality. This is a little doodle I sketched with a cheap ball-point pen, no more than an inch wide to start with. This creature is called an amphisbaena, and you may sometimes encounter it in medieval bestiaries.
