    Default kooka install

    I am trying to install kooka for scanning documents.
    I get the following error mesage by running "configure":
    checking for KDE... configure: error:
    PHP Code:
    in the prefixyou've chosen, are no KDE headers installed. This will fail.
    So, check this please and use another prefix! 
    Could anyone tell me what am I missing?

    Use KDE11.2
    Thanks

    If you are running coonfigure, you probably haven't used YaST or zypper to install it.

    You are better getting rid of it and using YaST to install it instead. Note that kooka is a KDE3 program; so you probably don't have the KDE3 libraries that it needs if you haven't used YaST or zypper.

    I tried the "make" way because I didn't find the application in the repositories. KDE3, ok I got it and installed as well.
    The propbem might be somewhere else.
    My scanner device is recognized. I can start the scan or preview, th document is scanned but then nothing. It remains locked waiting for ???
    I tried with xsane and skanlite, same problem.
    A good idea ?

    It's a while since I used kooka but my memory is that what you do after a scan is not obvious. As I recall, there is an option to save a scanned image which you need to use before anything else will happen.

    kooka is discontinued and you have to use either xsane or skanlite.

    First make sure that your scanner works. After configuring, see if you can run scanimage or not.

    I tried to use kooka because I have been using it under 11.1/gnome I was running before. But now the 3 of them doesn't work.

    What is your scanner model?

    And, what driver is currently loaded?

    Well,
    Is it helpful for you?

    Sorry about that. Actually, I wanted the output of the following to see the scanner model.
    Code:
    cat /etc/sane.d/dll.conf
    You will see your scanner model uncommented (with no leading # sign) there.
