Thread: gscan2pdf in openSuse 11.3

  1. #1

    Default gscan2pdf in openSuse 11.3

    Hi any and all.

    Have upgraded several machines to 11.3 and am loving it, except I am struggling to get gscan2pdf going.

    There's a 1-click in the package search from
    Index of /repositories/home:/illuusio/openSUSE_11.3
    but things seem to go rapidly downhill as the rpm has a failed dependency for perl-Config-General24.
    Have tried installing this separately (only there for factory), but had a chain reaction and eventually tried to accept ignoring a dependency on a specific (old) perl version.

    Any suggestions -or ability to contact the maintainer of the repo perhaps?

    Better still, is there a nice qt app that works so elegantly? -specifically with wife-proof simplicity for multi-page pdfs.

    Thanks for any pointers, Alex

    Question Re: gscan2pdf in openSuse 11.3

    i tried also to install the "gscan2pdf-0.9.31-1.Suse.noarch.rpm" from the Sourcepage, but it needs to install the "perl(Gtk2::ImageView)" that i cannot find?
    From where i can get "perl(Gtk2::ImageView)"?

    I'm using 11.2 but have you tried xsane in 11.3, this is what I am using for scanning to pdf.

    gscan2pdf does so much more than xsane.....it runs unpaper to remove scan marks...it handles scanning double sided documents via a feeder...letting you just flip the stack and put back in document feeder and knows to scan them in reverse page # order.....I didn't realize upgrading to opensuse 11.3 removed gscan2pdf till I just tried to scan some documents.....has anyone located a good version with required dependencies? I tried to install the 11.2 version and played the dependency game till it was asking for perl-forks....and gave up.

    Or get the source rpm for 11.2 and recompile. Or get the source from above link.

    Thank you for your reply. Unfortunetly as this original poster mentioned...that one click install requires perl-Config-General24 which is not available for opensuse 11.3 and although webpin finds 3 hits for it in the opensuse 11.2 build service none of those 3 places actually HAS the file even though webpin says they do.

    Hey, original poster here -I only just spotted all the recent activity!

    I've tried several more things including build from source and the suse files of the latest release (gscan2pdf-0.9.31-1.Suse.noarch.rpm) on the projects sourceforge page
    Given that the project author has seen fit to actually provide a suse version, my next step was going to be to contact him (I think), for guidance.

    Could I suggest that others here try that version (Browse gscan2pdf Files on SourceForge.net), and report details of failed deps etc back here?

    has anybody had any more success with gscan2pdf ?

    I have succeeded in getting version 0.9.24-4.1 installed from --

    home:smains:mygscah/openSUSE_11.3

    It opens to the normal desktop when you start the program, but when you press the scan button it does not scan but instead opens a second desktop and stops responding.

    Any Ideas as this remains the best scanner I have used.
