I'd like to remove the default scan program simple scan which is called in the indicator-session applet, and replace it with my favorite scan program, xsane. I can't find any hints how to achieve that. When simple scan is removed from the computer, ubuntu wants me to reinstall it via software center.
Where and how could I change that?
I think I found a solution after examining the source code.
The only way to change it seems to be a recompling of the package after editing src/device-menu-mgr.c and replacing all occurences of 'simple_scan' with 'xsane' there.
I really can't believe this is hard-coded - no choice for the user...
