File/Create/Scanner ... on GIMP 2.9.8

No problem getting to my scanner on current release of GIMP.

Looking at the development version (GIMP 2.9.8) and the File/Create/Scanner option is not listed.

Is there something I need to do on the development version to see and be able to select my TWAIN drivers?

For some reason the TWAIN plugin is not included in the 2.9.8 installation package that comes from gimp.org

It is included in Partha's Gimp 2.9.8 www.partha.org You could try that. However, I am using a Win10 VM for Windows try-outs and my printer/scanner is not connect so not a given that it works.

File/Create/Scanner ... on GIMP 2.9.8

Tried Partha's Gimp installed on a straight Windows 10 machine (no VM) and it did add the Scanner/Camera entry to the File/Create menu but with no twain drivers listed.

Not sure what else is needed?

Thanks for pointing me in this direction.

Could be this problem

https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=788962

64 bit drivers not recognised. Depends on scanner? Install 32 bit TWAIN driver?

My builds are 64bit. You'll need a 64-bit TWAIN driver. You can easily test this by installing a trial version of VueScan (https://www.hamrick.com/)

Ok, I understand.

Although Vuescan does provide both 32 and 64 bit drivers, "there’s normally no 64-bit TWAIN data source manager installed on 64-bit Windows" (per Ed Hamrick ). Makes it harder to test :-(
