I like 2.10 - thanks - and have had no problems installing and running - but how do I scan to Gimp now? This is one of my main uses - scanning my box-loads of old photos and slides, then cleaning up, repairing fading/yellowinge etc using Gimp. I can't see a Create from Scanner option any longer? Help!

Digitizing old photos/slides must surely be a common use of Gimp?

Hello Jack,

i had the same issue, but after installing "xsane-gimp" on my OS (Manjaro Linux) the issue was solved. If you use a Linux OS then this might help you as well!

Greetings, Sonja

Don't worry dear, I am here to reply to you. Actually i think the reason why people do not comment here. That the won't understand what is written here. You have to follow to manage their work to write their thesis work. I at first also did not. You should make your post very clear for the users.
