I'm running Xubuntu (Xfce desktop) and would like to keep with the desktops responsivness by avoiding, if possable, loading up a bunch of KDE and Gnome libraries. Installing XSANE, but was interested if there are software options or tricks to create PDF files directly from a scan simular to what Adobe Acrobat Professional does for me on the XP machine?

Well, I'd personally do it _with_ KDE, but that's since I'm running it
to begin with. There's a nice SANE frontend in KDE, and KDE has
"Print to PDF" options. (You've gotta download and install some Open Source
software to be able to do that on Windows. :^) )
You could probably use a mix of XYZtops and pstopdf in a script to convert
something you get from a SANE frontend into a PDF file.
