Never knew it was there :-)

Anyway, I just tried it on my system (running Gutsy) and I just don't like it. 
xsane is way, way superior IMHO. Kooka is probably OK for scanning in paper 
documents, but for doing stuff like I do, such as scanning transparency film, 
it's no use at all. I don't see the pre-post histogram settings that xsane 
has, for instance.

So, I'll have to see about getting xsane fixed, if it's been broken.
