I dug out my old rebadged Mustek 1200 CU USB scanner, plugged it in, and started scanning. No configuration required, other than for me to pick the scanning options I wanted to use (resolution, colour, etc.). I've even pulled out leads and plugged them back in again, trying to give it a hard time. All I had to do was close down the scanning program and re-open it, to start again. It all seems to be working quite robustly. So, I'd say that scanning, even through USB devices, does actually work okay, and your problem would be down to either the drivers for your scanner, or your scanner, in itself. The two programs I tried with are listed in the Gnome graphics menu as scanner tool and scanner utility. The first being xsane, the second being "flegita". The flegita program being something with very few options for me to play with. Not enough, really. And it didn't give me any real options for where I wanted scan, other than picking an A4 page, or some other sizes, and it botched scanning the right area. I'd call it a waste of time. Xsane, on the other hand, is something that I'm used to using as the scanner interface with The Gimp, on FC4. It's a bit primitive looking, but does what it's supposed to. -- [[email protected] ~]$ uname -ipr 188.8.131.52-41.fc7 i686 i386 Using FC 4, 5, 6 & 7, plus CentOS 5. Today, it's FC7.
