Using the scanner
It is now possible to use the scanner in D129.
You can access the scanner from any of the grad Linux PC's using
one of the following programs:
- scanimage - a command line utility. You really need to read the man page to use this one.
- xscanimage - a graphical utility. As to be run from within a X session.
- gimp - go to the Xtns menu, Acquire Image, Device Dialog. This
is basically a tight integration between xscanimage and the gimp and the preferred
way to use the scanner. The scanned image can immediately be manipulated in the gimp.
- man scanimage
- man xscanimage
