scanimage sane xsane inetd gimp scanner situation
to the penguin:
i cannot seem to get my scanner to show in the gimp aquire menu. this is being to drive me nuts. :0 er, in a good way.
if i type *scanimage -L* as a user, my scanner is NOT found. however, if i type *scanimage -dplustek_pp:/dev/scanner* then the routine can find it. this blows my mind.
loading startx (kde) and then gimp does NOT show the scanner, however. why can't i get gimp to find my scanner? scanimage can find it with a little extra help on the command line. hmmm. ideas?
