Re: Support for Page Scanners (ie. HP ScanJets)

I have a HP ScanJet 4C here and use it with Debian/Linux. It works great.
You have to include the "generic SCSI interface" to the kernel and install
the hpscanpbm package.

I prefer xvscan, a patched xv version that allows scanning directly into
xv. It's great! Note that you have to pay for this, but it's only US $50.
Note also, that you will propably need a little more RAM than what you
need if you use Windoze. (It seams as xv consumes much more memory when
scanning highres than the Windoze progs do.)
