VueScan is an app for Linux et cetera that supports scanners by 65 manufacturers such as "Brother" fully automagically and does not rely on drivers, set-up or complicated configuration. Autodetects everything and just will scan papers and work.
Some App stores carry it as trialware, else it costs a whoppingly expensive 80 € doubling the price of a budget scanner. So this will never scale!
No hassle setting up drivers:
"download, launch and scan right away. no set-up, no nothing. just works."
This App addresses the problem of poor or non-existing driver support by many if not most scanner manufacturers themselves. Now we need this open-sourced!
VueScan is crippleware in that it does not create a /dev/scanner/ or such for other flatpaks like OCRfeeder and watermarks all pictures, thereby making them useless.
