I can't figure out how to specify a particular scan size in xsane. The only place I can find to change size is in preview, where there is a drop down list of choices including letter port. How do I specify an arbitrary size in inches?
Ubuntu 10.04, xsane 0.996, Brother MFC 240c scanner.I just finished writing a long dissertation on my problem with this scanning environment (which I will spare you). In a nutshell the resulting image, when printed, is smaller than the original document. In writing my dissertation for this post I determined that the cause of the issue is that xsane believes I am scanning an 8.5 x 14 inch document when I am in fact scanning an 8.5 x 11 letter. So the question is... can I change the size to 8.5 x 11? and if so, how? I have not found anything in the xsane Preferences.
I started a thread that just brushed on the topic of running Xsane to scan with my HP c6380. However, the subject did not go very deep. It was alot about the printer, but not very much about scanning. It was also a previous installation and version of FedoraKDE. Now, I would like to take a moment to ask how to get Xsane up and running so that I can scan with my printer. I have it installed using $yum. However, the icon has not appeared anywhere and I am stumped.
The one thing that has stopped me switching over to Ubuntu was getting my scanner to work. I finally resolved this issue. Here are the set I followed to get it working. When trying to scan with XSane I would get the device not found alert. Using the sane-find-scanner command would find the scanner as a USB device. found USB scanner (vendor=0x04b8, product=0x0851) at libusb:001:006 I amended the "rules" file for xsane /lib/udev/rules.d/40-libsane.rules added the two following lines
Now I have a fully working colour scanner, bye bye windows
I just got an Epson Perfection V330 Photo scanner.After connecting it to Ubuntu 10.04, it's not recognized by XSane and Simple Scan.The relevant lsusb output:Bus 001 Device 008: ID 04b8:0142 Seiko Epson Corp.Google does not yet know "04b8:0142",.
I have a Canoscan LiDE 30 scanner which works fine in Linux. I haven't used it in months, and never since moving from Jaunty x86_64 to Fedora 11 x86_64. This evening I suddenly need to scan two pages to send to someone via e-mail, and the recipient is desperate to receive them. Naturally, Xsane has decided this is the moment to screw me.
The problem: I cannot figure out how to tell Xsane that the page size is 8.5 11. It insists on scanning only the left side, 3.99 x 11. I cannot find a page size anywhere in any of the buttons.
In Preview I once got it to scan the entire page, but could not figure out how to save the image to file. Subsequently I have not been able to figure out how I did it. In any event, scanning from the small main window always scans 3.99 x 11. Adjusting the scan area manually in the Preview window allows me to change the size area in the small main window to 8.5 x 11, but when I then scan from the small main window it reverts to 3.99 x 11.
I have scanned the document a hundred times at least, each time trying different buttons, but nothing has succeeded in getting the full page.
CanoScan LiDE 210 running under 10.10 on a Tosh Tecra M11-130 laptop.Currently trying out xsane to archive some paperwork in monochrome, as the bundled Simple Scan utility can only save in either colour or greyscale. The problem is that the same A4 page saved as monochrome has a file size about three times larger in Ubuntu than in Windoze.
The scan mode options are either 'Colour', 'Greyscale' or 'Lineart'. There is no 'halftone' setting available, as shown in some of the xsane manuals. Don't know whether this is significant to this issue. Xsane's main option window shows 3508 x 2480 x 1 bit for a 300 dpi A4 monochrome scan when 'lineart' is selected, but the intermediate file size is 8.3MB instead of just over 1MB before packing for the PDF. This is consistent with each pixel not being recorded as a 1 or a 0, but as a greyscale 11111111 or 00000000, i.e. monochrome/halftone, but stored in an eight bit field. how to tweak xsane for true monochrome intermediate .pnm files and saved PDFs?
I have scanner working nicely, but...When I launch xsane, the scanning for devices upsets my tv-tuner.Xsane accepts a device name in the command line, but how to put it there?sane-find-scanner gives:found USB scanner (vendor=0x04e8, product=0x341b) at libusb:003:003found USB scanner (vendor=0x0c45, product=0x602d) at libusb:002:002
Ok, installing the Epson DX8400 printer driver was easy... I just turned it on, and Ubuntu searched and installed the printer itself.
But scanning... that's another story. In Ubuntu 9.04 the trick was as simple as installing libsane-extras in Synaptic, but this doesn't work in Ubuntu 9.10! When I try to run XSane, it simply replies that there is no available device...
today I upgraded via official testing repository Gnome to version 3.18. After this, icons on desktop and nautilus are bigger, than before. Next thing, gaps between icons are smaller than before. I tried change theme to default (Adwaita), then run gtk-update-icon-cache, but without result.
Normal view - icons are big for this view. URL....
Small view - icons are still big for this view. URL...
How can I change icons size and gaps size? Or is it bug for this version?
I installed squeeze on my eeepc 1015ped and downloaded the correct firmware-brcm80211 drivers but every time I scan for my network using iwconfig wlan0 scan or wicd, my computer completely freezes. I previously had a solid install running xmonad, and wicd was working like a charm (using the same broadcom driver) but i tinkered too much with it and decided to do a fresh install. I haven't quite run into a problem like this before.
I just bought a 32" Panasonic LCD (1080p) and have decided to use that as my main monitor. Unfortunately, when I hooked it up to my computer, I had under-scan with both Windows 7 x64 and Ubuntu Karmic x64 (using a Radeon HD 4870 1GB). In Windows, there was a simple slider in the Catalyst Control Center to fix the under-scan issue. Unfortunately, the same option wasn't available with the Linux counterpart. I searched online for some answers, but all the ones I found seemed outdated, or gave me errors.Using the Aticonfig help command, I figured out how to fix the under-scan in Linux.
Is There A Way Yet To Fix The Black All The Way Aroung The Screen With HDMI.Its Really Just A Digital Issue I Think!.It Works Through VGA Fine But The Audio Xtra Wire Thing Is A Drag.It Would Be Nice To Get Catalyst Working ( The Overscan Underscan Tab Like Windows) But Xorg.conf Would Be OK I Guess.
I had a hard time finding out how to change -- get to-- the simple scan preferences. There is no batten on the screen to open preferences window. I found two way to change the preferences on simple scan.
1. Easy way: I found that when you run a program in gnome an icon of that application appears on top bar. If you click on that icon a window will appear and one of the items on that window is preferences, by clicking on that you could open preferences window, and change your preferences.
2. Hard way: Go to applications and open dconf Editor then go to org section click on it then go to gnome section click on it then go to Simple-Scan click on it now you can change things
3 o 4 days ago I installed KDE 4.6 from KDE 46 repository and I upgrade my OS and some applications like Amarok. I had some problems so I erased .kde folder and reboot my computer. KDE 4.6 works fine and fast (in my opinion, faster than KDE 4.5) but I have problems with Amarok 2.4. When I try to scan my music collection Amarok don't find any song. I have a NTFS partition in my computer and I have all my music there. I mount the partition since fstab and in 6 months I didn't have any problem. I can use Clementine for exmple and scan all my songs perfectly, but not Amarok.
I've been using Ubuntu 9.10 'in anger' for a couple of weeks now and overall I'm impressed. However, a couple of days ago my old Epson C46 (which had been working fine under Karmic) died, and I had a look for a replacement.
I decided on a Canon MP270 because Canon seemed to have gone to the trouble of providing Linux drivers on their website. I even phoned Canon and they confirmed it should work fine.
Today the AIO arrived and I downloaded the printer and scanner drivers from Canon. I could't get the install.sh files to run - tried ./ sudo and sh etc, no joy. Anyway, I used the package manager to install the .deb files and that seemed to go OK.
The printing side of things works fine but I can't get the scanner recognized by Xsane.......
How would I change the permissions for a specific program(xsane)? For some reason Xsane only works now if I run as root. It was working fine before the latest kernel update, now I get "cannot start scanner: invalid argument" unless I run the program as root. Also images that are scanned are nor accessible unless I am root
Epson Stylus NX215 Ubuntu 10.04 64 bit The printing feature works fine still. Iscan is installed from avasys.jp Rolled back to old kernel and problem still exists
Does Recordmydesktop have a file size limit? I'm considering using the Zero compression setting to keep CPU usage down, but I don't want to run up against a 2GB or 4GB file size limit. While I know some filesystems impose this limit, most screen recorders I've used have a 2GB or 4GB limit when recording, regardless of the filesystem.Is this an issue with Recordmydesktop
Burned onto CD, some mp3 music...used windows.... Now when copying from the CD to computer using Ubuntu 9.1, ...althouth there is no problem with the sound and they play great. I noticed that the file format is now .wav, furthermore the file size is about 13 times the size. I burned a file no larger than 3-5 MB and now the same file is 60 - 70 MB. Is there an easy way to shrink these files to a more manageable size?
