Two scanners are freely available at the faculty CANON CanoScan LiDE 100 , attached to the machines nymfe01 respectively. nymfe06 with optical resolution up to 2400x4800 dpi.

When using it, keep the glass clean and do not touch it unnecessarily. Do not clean the glass yourself , but send any cleaning requests to unix@fi.muni.cz .

A low-level tool suitable for repeated scanning is scanimage and try a more user-friendly scanning experience xsane . Scanner Services can use i GIMP .

If a scanned file type is PNM , it can be easily converted, for example, by a program convert ( ImageMagick ) or GIMP.

What to do in case of trouble

If you fail xsane run, or do not offer any scanner, try to list the detected scanners: scanimage -L . You should correctly output the following:

device `genesys:libusb:001:002' is a Canon LiDE 110 flatbed scanner

It can also help disconnect and reconnect the USB cable.

If you happen to stop the scanning program unexpectedly, make sure that it still does not run (for example, without a visible window) ps ). If so, kill it (command kill -9 $PID ) to prevent other users from being blocked.
