On earlier versions of Gimp, up to Ver 2.6.8 you can use
SCSI scanner. No fooling around getting drivers, etc.
I have been running Gimp on different versions of Linux.
That might be why I did not have too fool around hunting
down and installing drivers.
On 2.6.8, (Ubuntu 10.04)I can scan:
File - Create - XSane - Device dialog
On earlier Gimp versions it was:
File - Acquire - XSane - Device dialog
It might be a matter of semantics as to whether or not Gimp
does the scanning, but I have always been able to start a
scan w/SCSI from Gimps File Menu.
