This pages is for discussion of ideas for GnomeScan

Profile Support

  • Option profiles like "Text", "Photo Archive", "OCR", ...
  • Allows defining a set of options to speed up and ease repetitive scanning tasks


  • Port to win32
    • implement a TWAIN backend
    • making GSane optional at build time
    • Migrate to waf ?
  • Port to Mac OS X
  • Provide a TWAIN backend
    • TWAIN 2.0 is available for linux : (LGPL)

    • However is there any TWAIN data source for Linux ?
    • TWAIN-linux architecture is actually similar to SANE : a shared object loading all drivers (.ds which are shared object too) but is less configurable than SANE (see /etc/sane.d/ ).
