I am using sane-backends-1.0.20 with xsane-0.996 on ubuntu 9.04
I have a Epson Perfection V700 PHOTO (a.k.a. GT-X900).
I can make scans with this setup, but I think the software is limiting
the scan size of this scanner.
Under "transparency unit" of xsane the maximum geometry is 5.9 x 9.7 in,
where it ought to be 8 x 10 in. Under the XP bundled software
(FineReader 6.0 Sprint), I can get 8x10 in transparency scans (full
contact sheets) from this scanner.
Under "flatbed" of xsane the geometry is 8.5 in x 11.7 in, which is correct.
How do I look into how to increase the scan area under "transparency?"
I obtained this unit primarily to make contact sheets of B&W negatives,
which require an 8x10 scan area.
Thank you in advance.
