I guess you mean xsane. If so, a bewildering interface, a badgering
licence message, and a lack of stability, make this a program to avoid.

Quiteinsane (gimp2.0-quiteinsane) is a simpler alternative.
THanks alot. I did apt-get install gimp2.0-quiteinsane and installed it on
I can't seem to find the executable with whereis gimp2.0-quiteinsane.
Do I have to configure it with dpkg?
i.e. dpkg configure-gimp2.0-quiteinsane or something like that?
Do I have to remove xsane before gimp2.0-quiteinsane will be made
i.e. apt-get remove xsane
