I am using Fedora Core 5 with lots of joy, but I lack a good scan-program. I can use the Scanner Tool, but I am looking for something that enables me to scan several pages after each other and store them as one document.

Does anyone here know where I can find such a program?

Have tried Kooka?

One of the past days I tried Kooka 0.44. I tried to download and install a file, but I got an error. I found the config.log-file, but that counts 1004 lines and I don't have a clue where to look...

Scanner Tool -> Options -> Multipage
You just keep scanning until all pages are scanned, then select the "save multipage file" button. You can choose multipage pdf, tiff, or ps file types.

@ Ijos: I ' ve to admit: once, I 've spend a complete evening with figuring out how Sane worked, untill I gave up. (It placed all pages in a seperate directory, but that was not my purpose.) Now, with an even greater desire to scan and also without Kooka (whatever) working, I picked it up again, starting with printing and reading a manual...

I still don' t understand Kooka, but... I can scan multiple pages now...

Thanks anyway!
