Ubuntu and Scanning and Video

Keywords: linux ubuntu 8.10 sane

Trying to run xsane from my HP 2133 resulted in the error message

Failed to open device 'v4l:/dev/video0'

As a hack, I presume, to get around this I commented out the line


in /etc/sane.d/v4l.conf

Picasa Hanging

Keywords: picasa hang places linux ubuntu wine

I have Picasa 3.6 running on Ubuntu under Wine. I managed to hit the Places tab and the whole thing hung. The way to fix it is to run

perl -i.bak -pe 's/places/people/' ~/.google/picasa/3.0/user.reg
