Which scanner to buy
I have an old Epson 2450 Perfection scanner that did a decent job of scanning 35mm color slides. On Windows. But I don't have a Windows box anymore and don't want one.
On Linux, with XSane and other such programs that scanner does a good job in flatbed mode but it fails to turn on the backlight when in "transparency" mode. So for transparencies it doesn't work at all.
I bought VueScan and that doesn't work in transparency mode either.
Wine dies trying to startup various twain dot exe drivers from Epson.
I'm ok with that. It's a 15 year old scanner. I'm happy to buy a new one but I want a scanner that will do 35mm slides, from Mint Cinnamon Linux. Actually I don't care about linux distribution.
I just want a scanner that works, and I don't have a Windoze box anymore.
