Old colour slides

I have been having a sort out at home and have come across a stack of
old family photo slides. When I say old, some of them from more than
forty years ago.

I had forgotten about them. Back in those days the common way to take
family photos was by using slide film.

So my question, what is the best way to transfer such pictures to my
computer? I do not have a scanner, but anyway, I do not think that a
scanner copes very well with slides. Perhaps there are specialised types.

There are also some colour prints, incidentally, but not many.

I am running Kubuntu Hardy, if that is relevant.

Thanks for any suggestions, ideas
