DISCUSSION: Using a Scanner over the network

A new la entry has been added:

Using a Scanner over the network

In this tutorial I'll describe detailed which steps are necessary in order to use a scanner which is connected via USB to a Linux-computer from any other computer in the network (even Windows will work).

Software on the server (which is the computer where the scanner is installed) one has to install at least inetd (or xinetd) and sane.

Nice try. I can't get my KDE Neon to edit the file. Apparently it does not recognize kwrite or gedit in the terminal. I can get it to list the file (I note that my scanner is on and the file recognizes only). So I'm screwed until I learn how I'm supposed to edit the file (yes, I used sudo to gain root access).
