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:

in the prefix, you'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.

tringaf@linux-y0bz:~> scanimage
scanimage: rounded value of br-x from 215.9 to 215.88
scanimage: rounded value of br-y from 355.6 to 355.567
P6

SANE data follows

1648 2314

scanimage: sane_read: Error during device I/O
bugchk_free(ptr=0x808e710), invalid end-mark=0x0, size=32000@brother_devaccs.c(1019)

This is what I get by scanimage command line
Any good idea?
Thanks in advance

According to the sane website, there is no support for Brother scanners SANE: Supported Devices

What is your scanner model?

And, what driver is currently loaded?

cat /etc/sane.d/saned.conf

Well,
Is it helpful for you?

tringaf@linux-y0bz:~> cat /etc/sane.d/saned.conf

saned.conf

Configuration for the saned daemon

Daemon options

Port range for the data connection. Choose a range inside [1024 - 65535].

Avoid specifying too large a range, for performance reasons.

ONLY use this if your saned server is sitting behind a firewall. If your

firewall is a Linux machine, we strongly recommend using the

Netfilter nf_conntrack_sane connection tracking module instead.

data_portrange = 10000 - 10100

Access list

A list of host names, IP addresses or IP subnets (CIDR notation) that

are permitted to use local SANE devices. IPv6 addresses must be enclosed

in brackets, and should always be specified in their compressed form.

The hostname matching is not case-sensitive.

#scan-client.somedomain.firm
#192.168.0.1
#192.168.0.1/29
#[2001:7a8:185e::42:12]
#[2001:7a8:185e::42:12]/64

NOTE: /etc/inetd.conf (or /etc/xinetd.conf) and

/etc/services must also be properly configured to start

the saned daemon as documented in saned(8), services(4)

and inetd.conf(4) (or xinetd.conf(5)).

Sorry about that. Actually, I wanted the output of the following to see the scanner model.

cat /etc/sane.d/dll.conf

You will see your scanner model uncommented (with no leading # sign) there.

Yes, I can see it

tringaf@linux-y0bz:~> cat /etc/sane.d/dll.conf

The hpaio backend is provided by the hplip package:

#hpaio
brother2
tringaf@linux-y0bz:~>

and then?

It looks like it is using brother2 backend. What is your scanner model? You can download and install the supported drivers from their web site:
BSC: Brother Linux Scanner driver /Scan key tool download

I did it.
Scan plus scan key tool.
Added the line in libsane.rule as indicated before the driver install.
There is no update for 11.2 but only 11.1
Could it be problem?

Did you see your scanner model there? Is it fully supported?

I sent a request to brother services.
It seems that it were no issue under 11.2
So everything is ok but nothing works :frowning:
What can I do?

For the sane drivers, there should not be any difference between 11.1 and 11.2. However, you need to see if the scanner is properly recognized and set up. I am not familiar with this scanner. See the system messages when you connect it and determine if the device is actually recognized and set up.
