A fast sketch for testing the scanner. This scanner is a very old Plustek ( OpticPro 9636 T) one that connects via the parallel port. It took me some time to get it running under Debian Squeeze but only with the 600dpi resolution and full colour. One full scan (a bit larger than DIN A 4 but not much) takes 20 minutes and has a massive blue tint. Good enough for B&W drawings but my poor little computer needs even more time to handle these large files.
