Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 202545
gimp Acquire menu does not include an xsane scanner selection dialog
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:40 EST
Description of problem: I have xsane installed and working with the iscan
backend for my Epson Perfection 4490 Photo scanner. However, the Gimp Acquire
menu does not include the typical xsane dialog option. It contains just "Paste
as New" and "Screenshot" options, under a dashed divider line.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): gimp-2.2.12-3.fc6
How reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Be sure xsane is installed and working with a scanner
2. Start the Gimp application
3. Use the Acquire menu to select the scanner
Actual results: No scanner selection item in Acquire menu
Expected results: There should be a Xsane: Device Dialog... item for using the
scanner to acquire graphics images.
[root@fc6t2 iscan]# rpm -qa *gimp*
Should be fixed with gimp-2.2.12-4 and xsane-gimp-0.99-6 which are building
I can confirm that the problem is now fixed with the above packages that I just
installed in today's FC6T2 updates.
Thanks for the speedy troubleshooting and fix.
