    Hello
    I an trying to download this thing called SANE drivers for my scanner. I downloaded the program, but I have to compile a backend to make my scanner compatible. I have XCode. How do you compile things like these?

    The usual way to compile and install a linux program is to open a terminal, go to the folder you shown in the picture and type:

    >sudo ./configure

    it will ask for the admin password. Then type:

    >sudo make
    >sudo make install

    EDIT: Open the README file, there should be instructions in there.

    good luck.
