Howdy folks, I've been just barely toying with the GIMP for over a year now and was quite proud a while back when I got my UMAX scanner working on my linux box with SANE 1.0.0. I got the GIMP recognizing xscanimage as a plugin and everything worked great. Well, I noticed that SANE 1.0.1 had better support for my scanner so I did the download, configure, compile thing and it was easier than I thought and had xscanimage up in no time. Did the symlink thing in ~/.gimp/plug-ins/ and no go. I recreated, copied, deleted ~/.gimp/pluginrc, everything I could think of and I just can't get the GIMP to recognize xscanimage as a plugin and put it in the xtns menu. I've read all the docs and I've done what I was supposed to but it just ain't workin' for me. if any of ya got any ideas, I'd love to hear them. thanks, Dave "Linux...
