    Scanner Softwear


    What are people using for scanner software on Linux? I'm running CentOS (RHEL), so I would prefer an RPM...

    Please correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't xsane totally out-of-date (not updated for almost 10 years or so)?

    On my fedora About-xsane says 2013 was last copyright date.

    I don't really care, I've used xsane for years and it's fine for my scanning needs. I still use grip to rip audio cd's too.
