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
You are using tumbleweed again! :-/
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?
That you are using Tumbleweed again.
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.
Well, post screenshots of what you get. Use http://susepaste.org to place them for some limited time.
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) :
Driver v Scanner epson2 No scanner recognized by this driver net No scanner recognized by this driver
Post photos. Make sure you start yast from the desktop menu. The program is called "yast2" if you call it manually, and in that case you have to use "su -", like this: cer@Telcontar:~> su - Password: Telcontar:~ # yast2 &  30494 Telcontar:~ # -- Cheers / Saludos, Carlos E.
