Hi all,

I had a chance to hook up a very old HP ScanJet IIcx (8-bit color, scsi)
scanner to my C3000 and it "just worked". Used GIMP to clean up a scratched
photo of my daughter from 1997 and overall was amazed it all worked.
Only needed to "apt-get install sane gimp" and then read the Intro
pages at:

Only problem (that I don't have any data for) is gimp perpetually
segfaulting after I exited. The image I edited was properly saved.
"kill -9" stopped the segfaulting.

Just need to find a better scanner now...8-bit color isn't anywhere
near satisfactory.
