You can run a SnapScan 1212u using VueScan software available at http://www.hamrick.com/ . The 1212u is supported, but not the 1212p (no parallel ports on a Mac). They recently updated the software in September 2010, and the 1212u is listed there.

SOURCE: New drivers...

Ony by downloading the revised driver from Agfa, Going on past experience when the great move from 98[DOS] to XP[NTFS] happened it can be a fraught experience and very often a new scanner in this Case VISTA compatible could be the answer.

SOURCE: Snapscan 1212u and windows 7

I got my Agfa Snapscan 1212U scanner to work fine with Windows 7. All I did was to install the XP Agfa Scanwise 2.0.0.9 software FIRST (available from Agfa website). Then I went to Devices and Printers, right-clicked on the 1212U and chose "Troubleshoot" - Windows then found and installed the driver automatically.

SOURCE: I have a Agfa SnapScan

Although Agfa no longer supports their scanners with drivers and software updates, some Vista and Windows 7 users say they are still able to install the XP software and get it to run.

Cant scan with my trusty old AGFA SnapScan 1212u with Lion OSX


I've got a solution where you won't spend any dime on it. It's a long road, but in few words, you need to install SANE for Mac, get the SnapScan1212U.bin file (you can get it from the Windows Installer), and a scanning software such as Snac for Mac, and/or Adobe Acrobat X.
I'll prepare a HOWTO only if someone really needs it.
Greetings,Diego.

Receiving the following error when trying to access Agfa 1212u scanner on Ubuntu. Could you advise what needs to be done. "Failed to open device 'snapscan:libusb:003:002': Invalid argument.


If the naming conventions are the same in the Ubuntu libraries as they are in the Mac libraries (no guarantee there, but I was just looking at them, and they look almost identical), it's not finding the appropriate driver for the scanner. I know that the SnapScan 1212u will work with Ubuntu, because I came across several discussions, as I was looking for a solution for my Mac. Have you installed the Linux SANE libraries? Agfa scanners were very popular for years, and mine still works great, too. I know that numerous Agfa scanners, including the 1212u are supported in the SANE backend libraries for Mac, allowing TWAIN acquisitions with devices that may no longer be supported with current scanning software.
I think you just need to install the SANE libraries, backends, and any interface (it's 5 files on the Mac). There's some additional troubleshooting information and links to files, here.
