Description Joachim Weller 2007-01-11 22:49:29 UTC
Version:           libkscan1: 3.5.5-2  (using KDE KDE 3.5.5)
Installed from:    Debian testing/unstable Packages
OS:                Linux

scanner epson perfection 4490/photo works perfectly under normal user, with xscanimage and gimp using epkowa:libusb driver,
however kooka does only list v4l:/dev/video0, but not the scanner. sane is 1.0.14-1
Looks like QStrList KScanDevice::getDevices() does not return it. A proposal to solve a similar bug by deleting ~/.kde/share/config/kookarc did not change anything. Any suggestions how to solve or investigate further ?

Thanks, Joachim Weller

If this is still an issue, and you can compile from source, please check out and try the SVN version at branches/work/kooka-kde3.  This allows the device to be manually entered in the case where kooka cannot detect it automatically;  either specify it on the command line with the '-d' switch, or use the new "Add Scan Device" menu option.  If the scanner works with xscanimage, then the sane-find-scanner command should be able to report it; enter the results and that should work!

Using this bug to collect all of the "my scanner isn't detected" reports.

If scanning works with xsane or scanimage, this means that Sane can find the scanner and supports it.  See comment #1 for a resolution to try with Kooka.
