Subject: [Gimp-user] GIMP scanner program


 I have just downloaded GIMP 2.6.4 and opened it. I want to scan an 
image from my scanner but when I select 'File - Create - Scanner/Camera'
 I am only given one TWAIN option. How can I add the GIMP scanner option
 to my selection?


This is actually outside GIMP's control, because when you tell GIMP to create a new image from the scanner, 
it basically just asks the system for a list of available scanner devices, and what's actually on that list 
depends on the scanner drivers installed on your system.  (Some scan utilities will also register themselves 
as an available scanning device, but that makes barely any difference to GIMP.)

I'm willing to help anyway -- what make and model of scanner do you have?

Numbers may not lie, but neither do they tell the whole truth.
