[Gimp-user] Gimp 2.10 scanner integration under Linux

Hi all.  Has anyone succeeded in scanning from Gimp 2.10 under Linux? 
In older versions the File/Create or earlier File/Acquire options
would give options to run Xsane or ImageScan! for Linux.  I've copied
the executables to the plug-ins directory without any effect.

I'm using Gimp 2.10.12 under Ubuntu 18.04, from the snap install in
Ubuntu Software.  I used to use the PPA install but I had huge
problems with dependencies when I tried that for 2.10.  The problem
might not be the PPA itself but I'm very chary of trying it again now
I've got a few things working.

The snap will be the problem. I went the other way, used to use a flatpak and
had to side-load lots of lib files into the flatpak folders just to get a few
plugins working. Never managed to get xsane working. Used a regular Gimp 2.8 for

Now using kubuntu 18.04  and Gimp 2.10.x from the PPA The installation is much
less fraught than before. I put some notes here:


but at the end of the day, it is what you are comfortable with.
