Description:

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.

2 I can use my Canon MG3022 as a printer, and as a copier, but trying to use Simple Scan to scan something, well, it doesn't work, so I'm not a fan of it.

5 Easy to scan and save single page or multi page as picture or PDF. Love it! Linux is "plug-and-play" with old Canon LiDE scanner that Windows is too proud to support. One more perfectly good peripheral saved from the scrap pile thanks to Linux.

3 Either it works or not. I usually try simplescan first but if it won't work with your scanner, then install xsane. It works with my "prehistoric" HP Scanjet 3970c

3 Flaky, when it works it's good. But some update must have happened so that now it no longer detects my scanner in my Epson PX710W all in one. So now, I have no useable scanner, thanks :(

5 You have to be clever to write software as simple to use as this. Just churns out photos and multi-page docs with no fuss at all. I returned to this after Maya KDE gave me Xsane. What a relief, just brilliant.

4 The name says it all! You can make jpegs like fresh pancakes out of it. It's so simple that if your scanner is not connected on launch you'll have to restart it to operate. But it managed to resuscitate a scanner that had been disconnected for more than 10 years after being pronounced dead by an MS Windows system. For PDFs you'll have to look for gscan2pdf or xsane.

5 I like it but: what really sux me and warn this "feature" all users :) when I scanned a book, scanning many pages, suddenly instead of clicking on the button - scan (to continue to scan another page), I clicked the button just to the left - neighbour :O :-((( The button is - New document... and happened that all my scanned pages (and not saved) were in s... :-( It's good app but this 'feature' is not solved yet (like a warning about you wanna new page scan but didn't saved former ones)
