Anomalous KVM event: messed up screen colors

Posted 05-02-2015 at 12:01 PM by flshope

This morning when I booted up my primary machine and started Libre Office Calc, which I use for my To-Do List, I saw that all of the colors had been significantly changed. For example, the greens and yellows were almost the same and were almost fluorescent in flavor. All of the colors had a different tint. Most solid lines in the spreadsheet display seemed to have dark shadows. I didn't check any other display applications, like the Image Viewer.

As starting point to get your scanner working under Linux go to SANE: Supported Devices

Get the AGFA Scanwise driver package, which contains the necessary firmware "Snape50.bin" and save that somewhere.
Then modify /etc/sane.d/snapscan.conf:
firmware /path/to/ScanWise/Drivers/Snape50.bin
That's it.
