I was not sure on which component should it be reported to, X,
sane-backends/fronteds, gnomescan, xsane.
It crashes every time when I am trying to scan with a GUI, the only way
to do somehing without a crash is using scanimage from commandline,
which is aborting with "scanimage: received signal 15".
Before reporting, you might want to try the command line scanner tool
scanimage --format=tiff --reslution=300 > scan.tiff
and see what happens. That should help you understand if the issue is
with sane-backends or elsewhere.
The -L and -T options will be usefull too.
You may also want to try the new 1.0.20 release as that fixes quite a
few bugs. There is a feature request for it, but compiling it yourself
is not that hard if you first do a rpm rebuild on the old rpm package so
it pulls in required dependencies
Use the following script to run configure:
case $arch in
echo "lib =" $lib
BACKENDS="pixma niash" ./configure \
