I just wanted to say thanks for the help from about a week ago,
especially to Olaf Meeuwissen. I was able to get iscan to work on my computer. 
For the record, to get it to work, I installed an older version of gtk, 
gtk+-1.2.10, and used the suggested version of iscan,  iscan-1.5.2-1.redhat.8.0.tar.gz. I 
At that point, I got compile errors relating to libgdk_imlib. I had the
file /usr/lib/libgdk_imlib.so.1 on my machine but not gdk_imlib.h.  To
get around this, I deleted the lines including gdk_imlib.hfrom
pisa_structs.h. and pisa_view_manager.cc. I also changed some lines of 
pisa_view_manager.cc from
  ::gdk_imlib_init ( );
  ::gtk_widget_push_visual ( ::gdk_imlib_get_visual ( ) );
  ::gtk_widget_push_colormap ( ::gdk_imlib_get_colormap ( ) );
  ::gtk_widget_push_visual ( ::gdk_rgb_get_visual ( ) );
  ::gtk_widget_push_colormap ( ::gdk_rgb_get_cmap ( ) );
I'm not sure what this did, but it seemed to work. Again, thanks
for your help. Bye, Andy
