linux scanning software

What programs are there to use a scanner in linux? I'm unable to get Kooka to work and I don't know of any other programs that will scan. I do have SANE installed but I don't know what to do with it. Any help would be appreciated.

If you have sane you might want xsane to do this in X. Sane was setup to scan from the command line, xsane was used to scan while in X.
