this works when using only SANE, but the result is that the printout 
is scaled down asmy scanner is able to scan more than A4 the format 
of my printer. 
I have tried using XSANE, but it does not send the output to my 
printer. I have no idea what is happening here or what I am doing 
wrong. As I cannot give SANe the size to scan, at least I did not 
find the parameter to do so, I need to use some frontend allowing me 
to define the scanning range.

Thanks for any advise how to solve this issue.

Best regards,
