What is XSane?

XSane is a graphical scanning frontend for SANE (Scanner Access Now Easy). It uses the SANE-library to talk to scanners. This means that XSane does not support any scanners itself. Here you can find out which scanners are supported by the SANE-library.

XSane is designed for acquiring images with scanners (there are other devices like cameras and videodevices supported by SANE, but XSane is not designed for that purpose). You can scan to file, do a photocopy, create a fax and start XSane from the GIMP as gimp plugin.


Before you start scanning please go through all setup pages. XSane may not work correct or you may not be able to get advance of all functions if you do not configure XSane correct.
