I have to scan about 40 pages and I remember that we had in KDE 3.5 a program (maybe Kscan) that scanned the pic and saved the file imedeatly afterwards with a ongoing number.
Is there still such a solution possible (without naming an lots of clicking)?Thanks

I have noticed skanlite tries to automatically name each file after you feed it the name of the first scan.  I suppose you could name your first scan "0001.png" and maybe skanlite will automatically number the rest of them.  (I haven't tried this myself .....).

I read about it before, but it seems it doesn't do this. But I will test it.
Xsane also has the option to renumber, but it does not work (at least it seams so).
Thanks again for your quick answer!

xsane numbers names automatically here when Names are not changed.

OK, I did the experiment.  Using skanlite, I scanned the document, when it was finished I clicked "save", and I named it "20191124-0001" and saved it.  Then I clicked "preview" and it prepared to scan again, and I clicked "scan" and when it was finished I clicked "save", and it offered to save the scan with the filename "20191124-0002".  So, there you go.  Not exactly automated scanning, but it will number the files sequentially.

Thanks a lot Dibl!
Probaly the best solution we have now.The old KDE 3,5 program saved without any clicking at all, that was very comfortable for scanning older photos and documents. I do not remember how it was called. Maybe I should look for and old iso  ;D
@Reiner:hmmm, not here... When I try to scan the second document, i need to click to overwrite, what I do not want.

So far the easiest solution is to rename the file "out.png" directly after the scan in the homefolder and then scan the next one...

@Lanzi: Here an example when I start.
On the first image the "1" is changed to "0001" after scanstart.


On the second image after sucessfull scan the "0001" is automaticly changes to "0002".

According to german Ubuntu wiki (the articles there are often worth reading), there should be a setting in xsane configuration for that (Überschreibwarnung an/aus, Existierende Dateinamen überspringen ein/aus, Dateinamenzähler Länge) :  https://wiki.ubuntuusers.de/XSane/#Konfiguration
Perhaps you have an additional look at the overview article about different scannong software for some more ideas  https://wiki.ubuntuusers.de/Scanner/Software/

For me xsane works exactly as ReinerS described it and has all the settings in preferences/configuration that der_bud mentioned.
I do a lot of scans per day (one- and more-pagers) and xsane never let me down. Current version I use is 0.999-7.
