Maybe I'm wrong, but isn't i.e also
"iscan" free non-OSS that should be
located on that iso part(s)?
Yes, iscan is on the non-OSS part for some time. Isn't it?
I think I've found the explanation that clarify this possible confusion.
There exist now two versions:
* iscan- (propriarity binary only)
* iscan-free (OSS)
iscan-126.96.36.199-14.i586.rpm which I've used on Suse
10.1 and before, has
been available among others on the DVD iso and for download at
The iscan GUI front-end has not had a menu entry among the scanner
programs after installation, AFAI've seen. I don't know if "iscan"
The GUI should have a menu entry. I suggest to file a bugreport.
propriarty still will be supplied as a extra non-OSS
scanner models that iscan-free doesn't support.
The non-OSS iscan version will continue to be shipped.
available on the SL-OSS-factory, doesn't contain any frontend, just the
free epkowa driver for SANE (backend) and lacks support for some Epson
scanners. However it can be run from standard frontends like Xsane.
I have now removed iscan, installed and tested iscan-free on Suse 10.1.
iscan-free looks to work well using Xsane for my scanner model, Epson
Perfection 1640SU with ADF. This ADF has not worked with Sane alone
previously, therefore I have used iscan, which now obviously can be
replaced with iscan-free for my scanner model.
Glad to hear!
