It's much quicker than using Gimp and in most cases it will give you a very good or at least acceptable result.
I usually start with Digikam and resort to Gimp only if Digikam isn't good enough. Digikam: Image =>Edit=>Color=>Auto-Correction; then try which of the 4 options gives you the most legible result. You can do further tweaking on the autocorrected image.
