How to install Twain plugin into OSX?

Postby BobC » Fri Aug 29, 2003 9:10 am

I downloaded Agfa F40 Twain plug-in demo from this site. There is an info about supported platforms containing MacOS 9, Mac OS X 10.1 and MacOS X 10.2. However, the installer is only for OS9. How could I get the plug in to work in OS X?

Dear Bob,

SilverFast does not support the TWAIN interface under OSX.

However, you do not need Photoshop to run the SilverFast plug-in: just use the SF_Launcher (latest version of SF_App):

Still can't get it to work

Hi,
thanks for an explanation. I thought that I'm an advanced user but it's probably not true - I can't still get it to work. Could you please explain for me step by step installation process of SilverFast + Agfa F40 on OSX?
I downloaded the Agfa Photoshop plugin, and the SF_App which you mentioned. It asks me for selecting plugin folder, but I have no idea which one to select?! I tried:
    /System Folder (MacOS 9)/Preferences/Twain - which was the install location of the installer
    /Adobe Phosthop 7/Plug-ins/Import Export
    and couple of ophers

Unfortunately, still no luck :(

When you launch the SilverFast installer for your Agfa scanner (not SF_Launcher), you are asked to choose under which version of Photoshop you are going to use SilverFast. Select the appropriate one (in my case: "Adobe Photoshop 7 on Mac 10.2.6".

The SilverFast plug-in and a installer_logfile are then installed in the correponding folder e.g. "Applications / Adobe PS7 / Pug-ins / Import-Export"

SF_Launcher and a link to your plug-in are also installed in "Applications / SilverFast Applications".

You just need now to click on the SF_Launcher, and then select the SilverFast plug-in.

Good luck.

Thomas

PS: the installer_logfile tells you which files were installed.

Hi,
still no luck. File I downloaded is SFTWE-6.0.2d39(Agfa). It was from the page http://www.silverfast.com/sf-download/339/demo/en.html
However, after starting up installer it says that it goes tp System Folder:Preferences:TWAIN

You need the Photoshop plug-in, not the Twain one.
