Thread: 12.1: Gimp limps without a scanner.

  1. #1

    Default 12.1: Gimp limps without a scanner.

    I installed my scanner successfully but Gimp [2.6.11] doesn't recognise that
    I have one. AcquireImages and Skanlite both can see it.

    Anyone else seeing this problem?

    I have gimp 2.6.11 installed (with openSUSE 11.4, 64-bit), and scanning does work for me via
    File > Create > Xsane: Device dialog....

    I usually just start xsane from a terminal.

    FWIW, packages installed:
    Code:
    # rpm -qa |grep gimp
    gimp-help-browser-2.6.11-13.18.1.x86_64
    libgimp-2_0-0-2.6.11-13.18.1.x86_64
    gimp-help-2.6.1-3.1.noarch
    gimp-plugins-python-2.6.11-13.18.1.x86_64
    libgimpui-2_0-0-2.6.11-13.18.1.x86_64
    gimp-branding-openSUSE-11.3-9.3.noarch
    libgimpprint-4.2.7-334.10.1.x86_64
    gimp-2.6.11-13.18.1.x86_64

    Checked Yast and found Xsane hadn't been installed. Looks like the bug
    (new feature?) is that Xsane is not installed automatically with 12.1.

    Thanks, Deano.
