In KDE SC 4.x it is replaced by a built-in scanning utility and by Skanlite. A KDE SC 4 version of Kooka is still being developed.

Kooka is an intuitive, easy to use open source GNU/Linux scan program. It is the scan application of choice for the KDE platform and thus it is official part of the KDE Graphics Package.
