    Scanners & Linux

    Hi All,

    I'm in the market for a scanner at the moment. Obviously I want to make sure that it works well with Linux too. I really like the slim Canon ones but, if their printers are anything to go by, support for Linux from the manufacturer is going to be low to say the least.

    Does anyone have any recommendations for good quality (at least 1200dpi) scanners that work well with Linux? I'm on RH 8 if that makes a difference.

    Thanks ..... Pete

    I have a Mustek 1200 cu that works really well. It's old to say the least. However I get what I need out of it. Check the SANE page for currently supported scanners.

    Re:Scanners & Linux

    I have a really nice Canon Scanner that I bought in March right before I started using Linux. I havent been able to get it to work and I am disappointed. When I had it hooked up via USB 1 it sort of detected it but it wouldnt work. Now I have it hooked up via USB 2 and it isnt even detected as far as I can tell.

    I was just reading that a lot of the newer Epsons have decent Linux support, so that is what I would suggest.

    Check the list of supported scanners on the Sane website. Then once you find one you are thinking of buying, I would browse through the mailing list archives for threads to see what issues there might be.
