I'm trying to scan 35mm film strips using a HP Scanjet G3010 and XSane on Manjaro Linux (17.0.2). Unfortunately, XSane is slow and doesn't work quite right.
Eg. I can choose between 600 or 1200 DPI (nothing in between), but if I choose 1200, the process can run for 20 minutes and not finish (I've killed it after that long). On the other hand, 600 DPI is too low of a resolution.
I'm pretty sure the printer supports higher DPIs, as I've used it with HP's software on Windows, and it worked perfectly.
So, my questions are:
- Is there anything I can do to make XSane run normally? Can I manually change the resolution in some config file or something?
- If not, is there any other free, open source software that I could use?
I'd like to avoid using a VM, and haven't had any luck with Wine (trying to run HP's software).
