anyone else having trouble with Scanner Utility / flegita?

Postby psimon on Sat Jan 02, 2010 3:22 pm

in mint 7, it detected two scanners, crashed after one scan, didn't persist settings, and had a ridiculous number of resolutions available ( which had to selected from each time ), but could be used.

but now in mint 8 its unusable;

it does now only show the one scanner and has more/better options, but now only has 'png' as output,( which may be the cause of it being much slower) scanner preview selected regions are misplaced, and crashes every time as a gimp plugin. ( plus as before; crashes after one scan, and doesn't persist settings)

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

I tried using Flegita to scan in a colour photo with my Canon N670U. The scan seemed to go through successfully, but the result was of very poor quality. I used to get excellent results in Windows running Canoscan Toolbox. I saw in another forum thread that Sane is recommended in preference to Flegita, but I haven't tried it yet.
