  • Linux Lite: 6.2 64bit

  • CPU: Pentium N3700 Quadcore 1.6ghz

  • MEMORY: 4Gb

  • VIDEO CARD: On board

  • Kernel: 5.x
From my understanding, (could be wrong) it is actually a gimp issue and not xsane. When gimp opens it normally looks for plugins which is where xsane lives. For some reason gimp is ignoring these plugins. Hope they fix that soon. The work around is saving and then opening file in gimp, which is an extra step, not a problem if you are only doing a few files but if you have multiple scans to make and edit this could get time consuming.

Thank you.


If I understand the situation, xsane has been updated to fix the gimp issue, but the fixed xsane has not (yet) been packaged for Ubuntu.  Manually installing the updated xsane or switching to sane seem to be the suggested workarounds.

Yes that's it. I can launch scanner from programs ok, but the program that pops up to save or whatever is not usable to me. I want the scanner driver to open in gimp as it should. This would be a real problem in a production environment. Glad I'm not doing that anymore.

Thank you.






 
Does your case match this ?

Looks like using sane may work.

No, sorry, I'm running a Pentium quadcore now on LL 6.0



Redchief,

Are you really using Linux Lite version 3.x ?
Series 3 is no longer supported.

Greetings everyone,

Hope someone can solve the mystery of why xsane does not show up in gimp after installation. Please save me from the dreaded Windoze machine.

Thank you.
