Comment 1 Boris Folgmann 2004-10-14 06:17:53 EDT
Same problem. .desktop was included in older versions of this package.
Please fix that.
Comment 2 Seth Nickell 2004-10-16 13:41:13 EDT
Xsane is an archaic piece of software UI-wise. We install it by
default because its the only way to get scanning, but we don't want it
to show up in the menus in a default install (but rather be accessed,
e.g., through Gimp).  It would be fine to have an "xsane-gui" package
or somesuch that was NOT installed by default and just included the
.desktop file. Really the only long term solution is to get a more
modern scanning interface.
Comment 3 Boris Folgmann 2005-03-04 05:38:50 EST
But why did you remove a menu entry for a working software when there
is NO better replacement?
