Simple Scanning Utility
  20 reviews

Simple Scan is an easy-to-use application, designed to let users connect their scanner and quickly have the image/document in an appropriate format.

Simple Scan is basically a frontend for SANE - which is the same backend as XSANE uses. This means that all existing scanners will work and the interface is well tested.

Does what it should, works under LM 21.1 with a Canon-Scanner Lide 110 without (not available) driver from Canon. But I miss function in coloured documents to set background white. Now the white background comes bright-grey. For example in text-documents with coloured symbols.

I've used it for years and by far the most useful set of features I've seen in Mint. This version is very old and the developers are still quite active. Considering building my own, updated version.

It found my Wifi Brother HL2390DW and scanned pages just fine. Well done.

Definitiv der beste Scanner, den ich unter Linux kenne. Leider zwischenzeitlich nicht einsatzbereit und erst nach längerer Recherche wieder zum Laufen gebracht. Ansonsten wärmstens weiterzuempfehlen.

Excellent software. Unfortunately, mint provides a very old version that is not maintained any more (

Simple and immediately able to scan. Wishlist: grayscale scanning - it's fast and makes smaller files for emailing.
