Hi All,

Yesterday I had to scan some images and low and behold scanning isn't working 
and I don't have the slightest idea what to do.

I used to use Kooka and it detected my HP Officejet 5610 all in one just fine. 
Well yesterday was the first time the occasion came up that I needed to scan 
some images and scanning is broke.

I tried using Sane, but it will not detect my scanner and insist my TV card is 
my scanner and there is no option to change this.

So I installed scan lite and get the same results.

last night I installed all of gnome hoping there would be an app I could use 
there with no luck whatsoever.

I also installed the kdegraphics package hoping Sane would use the libkscan 
library that Kooka used and that was a dead end too. 

All in all I've wasted a whole day for a simple task, and I'm so frustrated 
it's hard to stay calm.

Anyway, I've exhausted everything I know to do. Does anyone have any 

David M.
