    Default scan multiple pages to pdf from 11.2

    I'm looking for an easy solution (1 click install) to scan multiple pages to one pdf file on openSUSE 11.2 with gnome.

    Most tools only support 1 page tobe scanned to pdf.

    gscan2pdf looks like a solution but I can't get it running on 11.2.
    (missing dependencies e.g. perl-forks)

    Any suggestion?

    I am having the same problem while trying to install gscan2pdf from the software.opensuse.org site.

    It will not let me install because it says there is an unresolved dependency with "perl-forks", which does not exist (or I haven't found it)

    I finally figured out a way to get gscan2pdf installed after you get the "perl-forks" error

    1. Goto Yast and install the following:
      perl-List-MoreUtils
      perl-Acme-**** (it's the D word)
    2. Then go to this link to install "perl-forks":
      http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...8.4.x86_64.rpm
    3. Now install gscan2pdf from the software.opensuse.org site:
      http://software.opensuse.org/ymp/hom.../gscan2pdf.ymp

    Might I also add that the new version of imagemagick will not allow you to save, rotate, or edit scanned documents in gscan2pdf.

    I did some searching on this issue and found that if you install the version of imagemagick for OpenSuse 11.0, it will work perfectly.

    I had to do it the old way as John Hopkins suggested. Suse 11.2 on my machine would't install perl-forks even with perl more utils installed. I went through the whole thing again (Gtk2 imagemagick,ex-podviewer, ex-simpleList, sane-frontends etc) and then I could install perl-forks and finally gscan2pdf. It works fine but it was a real hassle!
    Samba for Suse is even worse. I am always amazed how difficult it is to get two Linux PC's talk to each other (desktop Suse and Laptop Ubuntu)I finally got it right.
    Gimp works straight away with my scanner (Canon MP520) both with the scangearmp from Canon and xsane.

    Hi

    do you know if the 64 bit version of perl-forks will work on a 32bit system ? if not do you know where I can find a 32 bit version?

    Thanks

    Ok I have found the 32 bit version of perl-forks that works at

    http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...3-8.1.i586.rpm

    it seems like its a factory repository so I recommend not remaining subscribed to this repository. But it worked for me.

    so the steps are as per the post above by slaol121 except for the perl-forks download.

    Good luck
