I just installed 19.10 and the simple scan application was replaced with Document Scanner application but neither of then can be found or installed from software ubuntu shop. How to install this utility? Thank you.


The package for the Simple Scan Utility is named simple-scan.

You have to install it with command:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install simple-scan

And what is interesting - its simple-scan.desktop file contains name Document Scanner in the Name field. So it is a new name for the Simple Scan (simple-scan) utility.
