xsane

featureful graphical frontend for SANE (Scanner Access Now Easy)
http://www.xsane.org/
Score:
 107
98 reviews
Description:

Xsane can be run as a stand-alone program or through the GIMP image manipulation program. In stand-alone mode, xsane can save an image to a file in a variety of image formats, serve as a frontend to a fax program, or send an image to a printer.

SANE stands for "Scanner Access Now Easy" and is an application programming interface (API) that provides standardized access to any raster image scanner hardware (flatbed scanner, hand-held scanner, video- and still-cameras, frame-grabbers, etc.). The SANE standard is free and its discussion and development are open to everybody. The current source code is written to support several operating systems, including GNU/Linux, OS/2, Win32 and various Unices and is available under the GNU General Public License (commercial applications and backends are welcome, too, however).

1 works but after 2 or 3 scans, the next scanned image is wrong colored. not fixed since years. morons!

4 Good Scanner, does the job, maybe the UI could be improved upon opening, it's a bit like GIMP in that it hits you with too many initial options.

4 Good Scanner, does the job and easy to use. combine the windows in 1 and will be excellent.

4 It should have a single windowed mode. Unify the windows into one. In a single frame. “Deveria ter um modo de janela única. Unificar todas as janelas em uma.”

2 Running LM 18.3 with a wireless Brother DCP-J172W printer/scanner. Everything about the printer works perfectly. Installed sane because simple scan couldnt connect. Luanched xsane and of course no devices found. printer/scanner is connected wirelessly on 192.168.0.4, shows up in the devices, prints fine. looking for another program as this one failed miserably.

4 Good Scanning Tool

4 xsane used as a stand alone application works great under linux mint 17.3 with usb-flatbed-scanner canon lide 35. Especially the sliders for controling brightness and contrast do their job in comparison to the tiny solution called "simple-scan". Only the handling could be optimized, for example I would whish to change the scanfieldsize directly on the main window, not on the options-window. And I would appreciate to store ONE single output pdf-file for a batch of several scanned pages instead of each scan stored on its own. But that is only a hint, not a complaint. All in all this scanning-tool does a great job!

2 BEFEORE LM 17.3, worked wonderfully with Canon LiDE 210; after 17.3, spotty enough to be considered nonfunctional. There seem to be quite a few comments on these problems regarding the 14.04 kernel. Anything dependig upon the libsane library fails.

2 Didn't work for me. Preview wouldn't show fully and then when it did it would show blurry. I switched to default scanner and worked perfect.

1 Die Bedienungsanleitung ist minimalistisch und falsch. Das Programm ist schlichtweg nicht zu gebrauchen. Nachdem ich versucht habe die gescannten Dateien zu speichern als PDF, waren plötzlich alle weg und es gibt keinen Hinweis, wie diese Dateien als PDF zusammengefaßt werden: Nicht empfehlenswert!

1 It won't recognize my brother printer no matter what I do. I guess I have to take my documents into work and scan them on the PC machines. As much as I hate Windows, it's less frustrating in this area than Linux. I just don't have a need to spend a lot of time to work out the solutions, if they exist.

5 I'm using Linux Mint 17.1 xfce 32bit with a Brother MFC 7360N. I installed the printer and scan driver from brother and it worked with "Simple Scan". Even sane-project.org tells that my all-in-one is not supportet it works well and I'm satisfied with it.

2 Doesn't work with my Canon PIXMA MX922 even though that scanner is at least a year and a half old. If there is a way to make it work with that, it's not properly implemented or explained in the program. Disappointed. I have to make do with Canon's own ScanGear software I found on the web somewhere on an Asian server.

4 ">>It does not work with HP Deskjet 1050 Series" --- on Mint 15 it does, *but* you have to manually "apt-get install sane" first (not xsane). Seems odd that xsane does not automatically install sane, as it's obviously a dependency....

1 1 star ONLY applies to KonicaMinolta Printers. For other printer brands (some mentioned by others), I'm sure XSane deserves all of its 5 stars. Sorry, but this was MY experience, but remember it ONLY applies to the many Konica Minolta scanner/printer/fax machines I tried at work, where they only have KonicaMinolta machines.

4 Xsane opened up more features for my scanjet scanner. Simple scan worked well, but wouldn't offer to scan negatives or slides - two features of this scanjet scanner. Xsane not only offered those features, but also had features reminescint of the features that the HP software offered for scanning. If you want to want to use your scanner's full features, or are having trouble with scans using simple scan, try xsane.
