May want to slow down a bit filling these, but yes xsane does need gtk+:2 as well.

However, like many, looks unsolvable unless someone does a port.

There are no upstream commits since months at

No gtk3 related activity there.
No possibility to scan with gtk3 gimp.
Comment 3 Jack 2022-01-03 22:33:53 UTC
No commits, but at least there is an open issue: so at least it is not totally ignored.

A lot of GTK3 porting is going on now:

Maybe it is time to test the usability with a live ebuild.
