Re: where do scans go?

Two ways to figure that out - scan something else and pay attention to where the scan software saved the file. - find the file(s): find $HOME -iname "*filename*" filename = some part of the scanned files name; could be "jpg" or whatever. I like the find route. I've made up a fin...
