The ScannerDrake wizard helps you install your scanner. Make sure your scanner is powered on and launch ScannerDrake by clicking on the Scanners entry of the Mandriva Linux Control Center's Hardware section.
The program tries to detect the manufacturer and model of your scanner. If it finds the scanner then information about it is displayed in the upper part of the wizard's main window. The window also offers a few action buttons (Figure 9.14, “Installing your Scanner”).
Choose the correct
After choosing the
appropriate model, you can leave the default Auto-detect
available ports option unless you have a parallel port
scanner, in which case selecting
/dev/parport0 in the
pull-down list should be the right choice.
|HP multi-function devices|
Note that HP multi-function devices, such as the OfficeJet and PSC printers, must be configured through the printer configuration tool described in to Section 9.7, “Configuring Printers”. The scanning part of non-HP multi-function devices can be set up with ScannerDrake as a stand-alone scanner.
Test the Scanner. Once your scanner appears in ScannerDrake main window, you can test its configuration by using any scanning application such as Kooka or The Gimp (See Section 5.3, “Scanning Documents and Images”).
