Please can someone tell me of a flatbed scanner that Ubuntu will drive?
As I am an oldie I do not understand all the technical jargon that goes with
using a terminal so please keep any info simple.
Many thanks for any help.
Richard.

I have an old HP scanner. Here is a link to the Linux HCL page.

To be honest, most USB scanners will now work in Ubuntu. I've only had experience with HP and Cannon but all of those have just literally plugged and played!
