    Default Gimp acquire


    Hello,

    I used to scan pictures through Gimp under SuSE 10.2, using the
    "acquire" option in the file menu. Having now moved to SuSE 11.0 and
    installed Gimp 2.6.3, I no longer find this option where it used to be.
    Has it moved? changed name? disappeared? any clue would be welcome.

    Go to File / Create / xscan image.

    Is your scanner installed?

    I don't appear to have xscan under file -> create, but I have now
    remembered how I solved this last time around. If anyone is interested
    here is the explanation:

    My scanner is part of an all-in-one printer (Canon PIXMA MP210). As
    such it is not recognized by SuSe as a separate scanning device (I did
    try to install it).

    I have a scangear rpm from Canon (only available at 'Canon Australia -
    Home' (http://www.canon.com.au), if anyone is interested), which I
    installed without difficulty. This gives access to a "ScanGear MP"
    option under file -> create.

    However, due to group permissions this will only activate the software
    if you are logged in as root. As any other user I get the message:
    Cannot find Canon MFP scanner device

    At least I can now scan.

    Thanks for the help!
