Hi All,

        Does anyone have experience with scanners under Linux, I've tried
to compile a few, but the seem not to work with mine.
I've got a (cheap) handheld Artec viewscan256. Under dos it uses irq 7.
Are there any drivers out there?

1. ocr linux scanner: ocr support for linux scanners?

 I'm looking for a scanner/OCR combination for linux.

I don't want to spend a bundle.

I know that vividata ocr shop can be used with linux.

But the scanners they support seem only to be high end, and most of
them I can't even find prices for. (maybe they are out of date).

Does anyone have experiences with running ocr shop on linux? Are there
any open source ocr attempts? rj
