wie es aussieht wird der Plustek bisher noch nicht unterstützt.
Bei der Suche in nach "Plustek AND linux"

Subject:      Plustek Driver Development: I have some source!

I have received the NT OpticPro 48XX (I believe this covers the 4800 and
4830) driver source from the main Plustek office, and authorization to
use this source to develop a Linux driver for their scanner!
I am therefore seeking volunteers willing to develop such a driver for
the Linux community.  I will coordinate all efforts, and release the
source to those interested...
I am amazed and delighted that I got a positive response from Plustek,
as so many others have failed!  It would be really great to use their
low cost parallel port scanners in Linux, and hopefully this is a step
in the right direction.
Let me know if you are interested (remove the no-spam to determine my
e-mail addr)...Thanks-Adam
