Scanners in the PC hall

If you are looking to scan via SUPO, see here .

Two scanners are freely available at the faculty CANON CanoScan LiDE 100 , connected to machines nymfe01 resp. 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 .

A low-level tool suitable for rescanning is scanimage and try a more user-friendly scan xsane . He can also use the services of a scanner GIMP . If the scanned file is of type PNM , it can be easily converted, for example, by a program convert ( ImageMagick ) or GIMP.

What to do in case of problems

If you fail xsane run, or no scanner will offer you, try to list the detected scanners: scanimage -L . You should correctly have output similar to this:

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

It can also help to disconnect and reconnect the USB cable.

If it happens that the scanning program terminates unexpectedly, check if it is still not running (for example without a visible window) (eg by the command ps ). If so, kill him (with the command kill -9 $PID ) so as not to block other users.

In case of problems or ambiguities, write to .
