[sane-devel] Epson RX500 1200+ dpi "Out of memory"
Thu, 30 Dec 2004 14:57:45 -0800 (PST)
That is good to hear.
The only reason I was trying such large dpi settings
because the xsane dialog offered 100,300,1200 & 2400.
I was testing things out, so I tried the largest
setting first. :-)
I will fiddle some more.
