Awesome is a bit of an overstatement, but, easy to set up and works when sometimes other things do not. Easy to use, produces good results, so it gets a 5.
The program windows are scattered, messy. Difficult and confusing to use. As janelas do programa são espalhadas, bagunçadas. Difícil e confuso de usar.
A good scanning tool with a lot of functions (maybe to complicated for some users). It allowed me using my scanner again that wasn't supported by windows7+ any more (I am glad i did not have to dup it because it still works fine). Unluckily the preview-window always has to be opened complicatedly using the menu.
This is one of the best scanning software available for Linux. It has wide range of customizablity! Works totally fiine with my HP Deskjet 2131 Printer!
@ craigmx5 : This app is not broken. You have to choose on overview window (where there is big xsane logo) the output on pre-selection zone (at the bottom of the window).
This app is broken under Linux Mint 19.1. No matter the settings, a scan will only show a partial full page (1/4). I removed the software and went back to Simple Scan, which works fine, if fewer options.
works but after 2 or 3 scans, the next scanned image is wrong colored. not fixed since years. morons!
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.
Good Scanner, does the job and easy to use. combine the windows in 1 and will be excellent.
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.
Good Scanning Tool
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!
Parfait pour utiliser mon vieux Canon Lide ! (Mint 18)
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.
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.
Working well with GIMP.
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!
Программа не работает со сканером от Canon MF 3010. Жутко тупит. Рекомендую использовать "Simple Scan". Он работает замечательно с этой моделью.
Works with the HP Deskjet F4280, in Linux Mint Rafaela
Functions very well with my HP Scanjet G4010. Very user friendly.
