GTK-myscan 0.1

GTK-myscan is a gtk frontend for several open source scanner-tools.
GTK-myscan is a gtk frontend for several open source scanner-tools. It uses the cups and sane backends for scanning one or more documents from a multiple/all-in-one scanner, converts the documents to a single pdf-file and make an entry in the log-file.

INSTALL (FOR DEBIAN/UBUNTU AND OTHER DEBIAN DERIVATES)

Execute install.sh as su or sudo:

'$ sudo ./install.sh'

This will install the following files on your system:

gtk-myscan.README in /usr/local/share/doc/gtk-myscan/ This file
uninstall.sh in /usr/local/share/doc/gtk-myscan/ Script for uninstall
gtk-myscan.png in /usr/local/share/pixmaps/gtk-myscan/ Icon
gtk-myscan.desktop in /usr/local/share/applications/ Desktop file for menu
gtk-myscan in /usr/local/bin/ The script

The following files are set as executable:

uninstall.sh
gtk-myscan

This install-script will NOT install the following dependencies:

zenity (Display graphical dialog boxes from shell scripts)
scanimage (a part of the imagemagick package)
convert (a part of the sane-utils package)
ps2pdf (a part of the gs-common package)
pdftk (see http://www.accesspdf.com/pdftk)
sed (The GNU sed stream editor)

If you run gtk-myscan without the dependencies in your path you will be prompted by gtk-myscan, and you will have to install all of them before you can run the script.

Install all of the dependencies with:

'$ sudo apt-get install zenity imagemagick sane-utils gs-common sed'
'$ wget http://ftp.no.debian.org/debian/pool/main/p/pdftk/pdftk_1.40-2_i386.deb'
'$ sudo dpkg -i pdftk_1.40-2_i386.deb'

Support for other distributions is unfortunately not supported at this moment.

UPGRADE

If you upgrade gtk-myscan to a newer version, you don't have to uninstall the older version as the upgrade will overwrite the old files by default.

The config- and log-files are NOT overwritten. If you have removed the config and log files, a new set is installed when you run gtk-myscan for the first time.

UNINSTALL

Run uninstall.sh in /usr/local/share/doc/gtk-myscan/ as su or sudo:

'$ cd /usr/local/share/doc/gtk-myscan/'
'$ sudo ./uninstall.sh'

This will remove all the installed files, but NOT the config and log file installed when you first run gtk-myscan. If you would like to remove the config and log-file as well, you can run (from a terminal):

'$ rm -r $HOME/.gtk-myscan/'

NEW HARDWARE (INSTALLED A NEW SCANNERDEVICE)

If you have installed a new scannerdevice remove the config-file and rerun gtk-myscan:

'$ rm $HOME/.gtk-myscan/gtk-myscan.conf

SUPPORT

** Missing dependencies (Error: msr001)

Install all the dependencies with:

'$ sudo apt-get install zenity imagemagick sane-utils gs-common sed'
'$ wget http://ftp.no.debian.org/debian/pool/main/p/pdftk/pdftk_1.40-2_i386.deb'
'$ sudo dpkg -i pdftk_1.40-2_i386.deb'

** Can't get scanimage to work (Error: msr002)

1. Inspect the configuration-file gtk-myscan.conf.

'$ cat $HOME/.gtk-myscan/gtk-myscan.conf

2. The device listed in gtk-myscan.conf should correspond to the output of the command:

'$ scanimage -L'

3. If it doesn't please cut the device-name (the text between the ` and ') from scanimage and past it on the top-line in gtk-myscan.conf. Ex: hpaio:/usb/HP_LaserJet_3052?serial=00CNSKN09261. Save gtk-myscan.conf, and then restart gtk-myscan.

4. If 'scanimage -L' gives you an error-message (or nothing at all), your scanner is not supported and/or not set up correctly with cups. If so, please checkout http://www.cups.org. You will not be able to use gtk-myscan until your scanner is set up correctly with cups.
