I can do basic scanning with xsane but wanted something more kde oriented so i tried to emerge skanlite by adding to /etc/portage/package.keywords:
=kde-misc/skanlite-0.3 **
This enabled me to emerge skanlite but it is even more basic and crashes on startup sometimes

I would like something like VueScan so I don't have to reboot to osx just for scanning

There is VueScan for Linux.

Never used, can't tell you if it is any good.

Unfortunately, that's unlikely to work on PowerPC.

I have used the gimp in the past for scanning.

Oops my bad, I read the topics with no answer and hadn't noticed the subforum I was in.

Yes, indeed VueScan doesn't appear to work on PPC. KDE had Kooka but it was discontinued. It may came back in the future, nevertheless.

Hm, same question for me especially for the Epson Perfection 2450 Photo which can scan negatives and diapositives.
Now that we don't have MOL anymore it is even harder to reboot into OSX.
