xsane/sane crashes ksmserver?
I finally got around to connecting my Umax Powerlook 2100XL SCSI scanner to my PC with Slackware64, v13. It doesn't want to scan.
When I boot up, it finds the scanner and when I run "sane-find-scanner" it detects it properly.
found SCSI scanner "UMAX PowerLook 2100XL V1.4" at /dev/sg0
When I run xsane, or scanlite, I get the same issue. I try to preview, or just scan, and it initializes the scanner and just when it's ready to preview or scan the screen goes black and I get..."could not start ksmserver" followed by an Okay button.
Once I click ok, I'm kicked out of KDE.
Searching on similar issues, people in Ubuntu had a similar issue and had to install debian packages and it was fixed. They installed extra packages for xsane and sane like "sane-utils" and "libsane-extras" but I can't seem to find those anywhere for Slackware, but I think they are just included with sane.
