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.

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

Works without bugs on Samsung SCX-4600, but provides only basic features.

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.

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.
