[sane-devel] Scanning multipage files

   I'm attempting to scan a two-page document with PDF output.  The 'sane' working directory is created and three files are created therein - the two PNG image files and 'xsane-multipage-list'.

   However clicking on the "save multipage file" button pops up the message window  "File multipageproject already exists" and clicking on "overwrite" produces:  "Error during save: Could not create secure file (may be a link does exist): multipageproject"

   I notice the xsane setup "Save" tab shows all user-level protections as greyed out, though the actual file and upper-level directory protections should allow everything.

   Does anyone have any suggestions regarding what's wrong?  I'm running sane-backends-1.0.19 on SuSE Linux.


PS - My congratulations to the Developers on an excellent piece of software!  I see Canon now appear to be releasing sane backends for their multi-function products!
