but if the problem is with any of the SUSE provides packages please
report it with SUSE.

What do you mean with "just closes down"?

Can you scan to PNG file?  If yes, change the print command (Click the
Configuration button) to

  cat > `date +%Y-%m-%d`.png

and try to scan to a printer.  This should result in a date stamped
PNG file in the current directory.  If you get such a file, it's a
problem with your print setup.  If not, it's a problem with iscan.

That does not apply for the CX6600.  It only applies to some models
that require an interpreter plugin.  Our iscan package enforces the
dependencies correctly, so you will get warnings when you try to
install a bad combination of iscan and plugins.

Hope this helps,
