SimpleScan: Saving scan is very slow

Post by Alex_L » Wed Nov 08, 2017 5:32 pm


It happens that saving a scanned photo is very slow in Simple-scan. When i want to save a document, the window to choose the place to save to opens and when I have chosen one, it takes a very long time since the save-process even starts. Can it happen that I have problems with my file-system where simple-scan temporarily saves the scans? Where does it save them?

Thanx for answers.

Now a days scanning is seems to be challenging under Linux. I was using Simple Scan earlier but I have to wait (20 to 30 seconds) between each input. It was also time consuming as It take 5 minutes to complete a scan. Now I prefer xsane. I find it faster and far more powerful, as you make various adjustments to the scan (colour, contrast, etc) before sending to a variety of formats. I think you can try this.
