Kooka is a scanner tool for kde, with all the fuzzy things you need.

gscan2pdf is a precious tool to scan a book, manual, some-sheets, pamphlet, ...
to a pdf file with a page-scan of the document, easyly viewable by anyone.

For sure, all of this depends on your SANE driver installation.
(SANE is the scanner driver for all scanners. (almost all of them))
