|While trying to get my "new" Xerox DocuMate 510 working in Linux I found that somehow after upgrades (multiple software versions as well as a scanner upgrade from a flatbed-only to ADF) that the increment counter stopped working. I was wondering why, with the automatic document feeder, it would save to the same file over and over again, defeating the purpose of the ADF.
In ~/.sane/xsane/xsane.rc there's "filename-counter-step" ... For some reason it got reset to 0 and I couldn't find a setting in xsane configs to change this to something other than 0. It should be 1.
Hope this prevents someone pulling their hairs out why the incrementer stopped working. I suspect not many distributions would have this issue except Gentoo...

What the heck am I advocating?
