Simple Scan Does Not Save Scan


2016-10-04

Once in a while my Linux Mint 17.1 system's Simple Scan refuses to save a scan as its Document tab's pull-down menu shows both Save and Save As options shaded out. I would like to find out what causes this malfunction.

Any help will be much appreciated.

Which version?
Code:
simple-scan --version
This bug perhaps?

I would consider upgrading it then (refer bug report)

ferrari,

I've just upgraded simple-scan to version 3.12.3 and ran a scan. So far so good. Since my reported problem occurs only once in a while, I'll keep an eye on the new version and will close my post accordingly after a while. Thanks for your advice.
