Thread: Scan2pdf

  1. #1

    Default Scan2pdf

    I would like to install scan2pdf on my Leap 42.1 PC. I previously ran it under 13.2 and liked it. Under 13.2 I loaded it via a repository, but it is not present on the Leap 42.1 repositories. I have therefore downloaded it from SourceForge. However, all that gives me is three python scripts with no indication of how to run them.

    Does anyone have any idea how I can run it?

    PS I've tried Xsane and Simple Scan, but there seem to be restrictions with both. Xsane doesn't seem to be able to output PDFs, whilst Simple Scan is great but doesn't do colour. Both these things are essential.

    Hi
    Do you have a download link?

    What about gscan2pdf from the GNOME:Apps repo?

    The download can be got from https://sourceforge.net/projects/scan2pdf/

    I did try to check out gscan2pdf but its not on any of the repositories I'm using. Which repository is it in?

    gscan2pdf seems to be only available from the 13.2 and Tumbleweed "GNOME:Apps" repositories.
    • If anyone feels that it would be nice to have it available for Leap 42.1, the repository maintainers will have to be e-mailed.

    Hi
    Ahh it's not enabled for Leap, not working...

    If you copy the three files from the sacn2pdf into your ~/bin directory and run it, does this work?

    Hi
    It's not working, has lots of perl issues.

    I type
    Code:
    python ~/bin/scan2pdf.py
    and I get
    Code:
    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "/home/jgw/bin/scan2pdf.py", line 16, in <module>
        from wxPython.wx import *
    ImportError: No module named wxPython.wx
    Everything called wxPython is installed, so it may be that scan2pdf doesn't run on Leap 42.1

    simple-scan is available. Don't be fooled. It offers you a jpg file save but if you change this to pdf and scan multiple pages, it will save a multiple page PDF.

    The OP mentioned that it doesn't do colour, but that isn't correct - it does. I use it frequently.

    I did like Simple Scan, since it is what it says it is. If I can get it to scan in colour it should meet my needs.

    So how to I get it to scan in colour?
