XSane is a graphical scanning frontend. It uses the SANE-library to talk to scanners. This means that XSane does not support any scanners itself. Here you can find out which scanners are supported by the SANE-library. (Note: the
xsane-0.91: description + notes
fw_sane-backendspackage also supports accessing devices via gPhoto2.)
XSane is designed for acquiring images with scanners (there are other devices like cameras and videodevices supported by SANE, but XSane is not designed for that purpose). You can scan to file, do a photocopy, create a fax and start XSane from the GIMP as a plug-in.
If you do not know SANE please take a look at the SANE introduction. For further information please read the Documentation of XSane.
