Simple Scan For Linux Flatbed Scanners


Simple Scan For Linux Flatbed Scanners.

Simple Scan is an easy-to-use application designed to allow users to connect their scanners and quickly get the image / document in a suitable format.

The software is basically a front end for SANE - which is the same backend as XSANE uses.

This means that all existing scanners will work and the interface is well tested.

NOTE: I use this app, whenever I need to scan documents, it is simple and just works.
