    hi,

    i’m trying to make sure i’m not doing this the hard way.

    my scanner software won’t work on the terminal server

    theoretically, it will work on linux

    but so far i have to install libusb, bzip2 and the scanner front end and back end

    do i do all that with the add-on manager?

    any other more simple way?

    thanks

    I have posted a guide on how to create Linux addons in the Products section.
    Check this out.
    Of course, you can also open a XTERM session and do it the hard way.

    Most scanners sold today connect to your computer with a universal serial bus (USB) cable. But don’t plug it in yet! Some scanners require you to install driver software before connecting the USB cable, so always follow the setup instructions that came with your device.If your USB scanner didn’t come with specific setup instructions, plug it in to your computer and Windows should automatically install it. If it’s an older model, you might have to install it manually. Network scanners are typically found in the workplace. Before you begin, it’s helpful to know the scanner model and manufacturer name.1.Open Network by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button, and then clicking Control Panel. In the search box, type network, and then, under Network and Sharing Center, click View network computers and devices. 2. Locate the scanner, right-click it, and then click Install. 3. Follow the instructions to finish adding the scanner.
