I found that I had to link xsane-gimp, not just xsane, into the plug-ins
directory for gimp-1.3. If I linked plain xsane, gimp complained:
/home/akkana/.gimp-1.3/plug-ins/xsane: GIMP support missing
But maybe that's just a question of how xsane is compiled.
John, is it possible that you forgot to configure gimp support when
you built xsane? I don't think it's on by default.
