Using scanner in Gutsy is much easier compare to Feisty. XSane program is included in the Gutsy package, so you don’t have to download the program. When I used Xsane in Feisty, the program recognized my scanner, but it could not run the scanner.

My scanner is CanoScan LiDE 20 (from Canon). The CD package is only available for Win* and Macintosh. When I use with Xsane in Ubuntu Gutsy, it is recognized as CanoScan 1240U/flatbed scanner.

Before I start, I assume that:

  • You use Ubuntu Gutsy

  • Xsane has installed already.
