Description of problem:
xsane starts with 12 x the error message "Failed to create directory: File exists", each one in a separate dialog box with a "Close" button.
Then the error message "Error while loading device settings. /home/ribesx/.sane is not a device-rc-file !!!"
Saved configuration parameters are not loaded.
The application is hardly usable because no parameter is retained. Each time an option is modified the error message "Failed to create directory..." pops up.
When quitting xsane, a few "Failed to create directory..." are displayed. No parameter is saved.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
xsane 0.999-10.fc20 (latest update as of 2014/03/21)
Steps to Reproduce:
application hardly usable
application should work like previous version 0.999-7
the problem is the same under Gnome or KDE
same here (xsane-0.999-10.fc20.x86_64)
I have exactly the same error. F20 new install 3 days ago.
Ditto...pretty much unusable,
It seems I overshot the mark with one of the patches in these testing updates:
