Ok, I have excepted the fact that Fedora 9 has its quirks to get it up and running correctly (but so did Fedora 7 & 8), but I'm starting to get annoyed about the missing scanner functionality in KDE. I used to be able to use Kooka in Fedora 8 to scan documents but now after 2 hours of tinkering, I can't get a single KDE app to recognize the scanner and Kooka is no longer available in any of the repositories.
The part that is extremely annoying is that SANE is seeing the scanner fine and I can scan from GIMP. When I try to scan in Digikam or Kphotoalbum I receive the following error:
No KDE scan-service available; check your system.
I have searched online and installed every package related to scanning (kipi-plugins, libsane-hpaio, sane-backends, sane-backends-libs, sane-backends-libs-gphoto2, sane-frontends scanbuttond, xsane, xsane-gimp) and nothing works.
Can someone please tell me what I am missing here? I really want to be able to scan from KDE again without the need to use the GIMP.
