Xsane will not remember resolution settings - scanner settings

Hi All,

I just installed Xsane to work with my fujitsu scanner. It works great! the only problem is it will not remember the resolution that I had previously set. I've tried to save my configuration before closing the app but it still forces me to adjust the resolution each time I start the program. Anyone have any ideas?

Hello and welcome to LinuxQuestions,

Check the ownership and permissions on the files in .sane/xsane. You could also try to edit the 'drc' file for your device manually, then start Xsane and see if your settings get loaded.

Looking forward to your participation in the forums. Have fun with Linux.

Kind regards,
