Description Johan Cwiklinski 2007-05-20 20:59:28 UTC
With the latest version of Gimp (2.2.14-5) Xsane entries does not longer appears
into the acquisition menu.

As I've not be able to found the preceding version, I'v re-installed the one
shipped on the DVD, all goes well.

Same here. Starting xsane-gimp from the graphics menu works and it can also save.
But it cannot immediately pass the scanned picture to gimp this way.

Comment 2 Nils Philippsen 2007-05-31 08:07:15 UTC
You both might have been bitten by the bug that caused e.g. the symlink from the
gimp plugin directory to /usr/bin/xsane-gimp to be removed when updating from an
old (buggy) version (such as the one contained in FC6 GA).

Please try the following and report back whether it worked or not:

- Update to the latest update of gimp. The plugin symlinks may be missing for
one last time (hopefully ;-) if updating from a buggy version.
- If the plugin symlinks are missing, e.g. no XSane entry in the acquisition
menu, then run this command as root:

/usr/sbin/gimp-plugin-mgr --install '*'

Indeed these command does the trick on my 3 pc.

Many thanks Nils :-)
