Subject says it all. Have looked in yast finder without result. I like the interface for a scanner.
Correction: Xsane -- sorry about that! But the file seems to indicate a PICTURE, not an app:
doug@linux1:~> locate xsane /usr/share/doc/packages/hplip/images/xsane.png
Because it is indeed a photo *file*.
You are still looking for packages the wrong way, using "locate" (that is a file finder) instead of using rpm, zypper, or yast to find *packages".
For example, with "rpm" command:
cer@Telcontar:~> rpm -qa | grep -i xsane xsane-0.999-lp151.2.3.x86_64 cer@Telcontar:~> It tells me I have xsane installed. Notice that "|" is a vertical bar, not lowercase "L". The pipe symbol. I understand the pipe. For some reason I get a different answer to the rpm command:
doug@linux1:~> rpm -qa | grep -i xsane xsane-0.999-3.4.x86_64 I had to look up this use of the rpm command--I was not familiar with it. Anyway, what is the meaning of the different output?
If it is not installed, then you can use zypper to find it in your active repos:
cer@Telcontar:~> zypper --no-refresh search xsane Loading repository data... Reading installed packages...
S | Name | Summary | Type ---+-------------------+---------------------------------------------------+--------
i+ | xsane | A GTK-Based Graphical Scanning Front-End for SANE | package | xsane-debuginfo | Debug information for package xsane | package | xsane-debugsource | Debug sources for package xsane | package cer@Telcontar:~>
Or you can use YaST in a graphical way. I posted this already, but I'll do it again. With a photo. See the attached photo, it explains how to *search* for a *package* with YaST.
I could not duplicate the picture, try as I might.
PLEASE CONFIRM that you have received this message and read it.
I have read thru it, and I don't get all the same results that you do.
Also, yast can't find a scanner, even tho it is a part of the Epson WP-4530 all-in-one (which I finally got working!) The scanner is for all purposes a different machine than the printer. Yes, I understand that. Here is the result of the yast query:
Using yast, (YaST2) : Scanner Configuration Driver v Scanner epson2 No scanner recognized by this driver net No scanner recognized by this driver Following up on that: Page called "Set Up Scanning via Network" Server Settings Permitted Clients for saned 127.0.0.0/8, changed to 192.168.1.0/24, per note in box Client Settings Servers Used for the net Metadriver localhost, that's what this was set at; I didn't change it Predefined Configurations Local Host Configuration Disable Scanning via Network <<<<<<<<<What's this??? I cannot change this! When checking box "OK" get Error Failed to set up scanning via network Hope this all meakes sense to the reader--I'm kinda snowed! --doug -- To unsubscribe, e-mail: email@example.com To contact the owner, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
