I have downloaded Scanlite and XSane from the Ubuntu softwars list but it doesn't show in the launch bar. How do I do that ?

Which launch bar ? .. we have no idea which distro/version/desktop you're running ?

That info should be part of ANY new topic ;)

Click the top icon on the launcher (application lens) .. search for the application .. drag it to the launcher bar.

Or

Start the application .. it will (whilst running) now appear on the launcher .. right click the icon on the launcher, and selecet "Keep in launcher" (or similar) .. now it should stay even when you close it.

I've already said ..

Click the top icon in the launcher to open the application lens

type the name into the search box .. and an icon should appear below.



IIRC, you can also open the application lens with Super+A on the keyboard

Super = the "Windows" key

if this is an AA1 .. Super key = the key with a picture of a house on it.

if it's a normal keyboard, it will probably have a picture of the Windows logo on it.

usually down by the left Ctrl and Alt keys

[EDIT]

I'm thoroughly baffled how you've been managing to use Ubuntu without knowing where to find the icons for installed applications ;)

Theres no windows key. Usually installed programmes automatically go into the launcher. Before when it dont go in the launcher  I do without the programme and try to use something else.or use windows XP..

Yes, I have found it. I have never used it before and never knew what it was for. But the programme scanning is not in the even though it was downloaded and have a tick by it.

I managed to get XSane. Looks a bit complicate. I'll have a look at it tomorrow. Well, now I know what that little windows thing is for. Scanlite doesn't show, even though it is ticked as downloaded and the review is not very good.
Thanks

Hi Bill

If you feel xsane is too complicated you could try installing simple-scan you should find it in the repos it has a much simpler interface but works very well I prefer it to xsane just because of it's simplicity

If you can keep your head while all around are losing theirs, then you're not quite grasping the situation

Yes. Scanlite is in Ubuntu 13:04. If you type in scanning in the search box it will come up with all the others. Said to replace Kooka. A comment says it is unbelievably complicated.  It is ticked as download but it doesn't show in the "windows plus A".
