    if all else fails...search scan in the software sarch, and i found this


    kdegraphics3-scan

    i think it might be what i'm looking for. the description says this:


    Kooka is an image scanning program for KDE that uses the SANE library.
    This offers scan capabilities to a wide range of scanner hardware.


    [more]
    Kooka is an image scanning program for KDE that uses the SANE library.
    This offers scan capabilities to a wide range of scanner hardware.

    As well as a user-friendly interface, Kooka offers basic image
    manipulation routines like rotating, mirroring, etc. Additionally, it
    has a save assistant that helps to find the correct image format. The
    image gallery and a configurable thumbnail view makes it easy to
    organize the scans.

    Kooka supports OCR (Optical Character Recognition) on your scans. Two
    open source OCR programs, ocrad and gocr are available as plugins to
    Kooka.




    no harm giving it a try i guess
