    Simple Scan - resolution control not working?

    Firstly - congratulations for Simple Scan, which lives up to its name admirably!
    Xsane is no doubt wonderfully competent, but far too complicated for casual use.

    But I am having a problem with Simple Scan, in that I can't seem to get selected resolutions to have any effect.

    A typical A4 mainly-text document I am playing with, ends up as:
    165K when scanned & saved as text pdf at 75/150/300 or 600dpi...
    1.5MB when scanned & saved as text jpg at 75-600dpi
    2.2MB when scanned & saved as photo pdf or jpg at 75-600dpi.

    My Epson V200 scanner allows normal resolution selection with Xsane or with Epson's iscan application.

    Thanks for any suggestions!

    Hello

    This is possibly related to this bug, according to which Simple Scan has problems when selecting non-native resolutions:

    Maybe, but that bug report says it was fixed with Simple Scan 0.9.10-0ubuntu1 & I still have my problem with 2.32.0.1-0Ubuntu2 which I suppose is a later version...

    If no other suggestions, I supose I could also do a bug report.

    Anybody else getting similar problems, or getting good results with similar scanner?

    Since the previous post, I have made fresh installs of 10.04 & 11.10.
    I still get the same problem with Simple Scan resolution in all cases...

    Nobody else trying Simple Scan with Epson V200?

    I use gscan2pdf - easy to install, easy to use, lots of features and it can control the resolution of my scanner. I recommend it!
