gscan2pdf 1.0.4

#1 Postby Jerry3904 » Thu Jun 14, 2012 4:53 pm

I downloaded and tried to install this upgrade, but ran into a dependency problem that aptitude could not solve.

This is an important app for my office, and I would appreciate someone looking at it when there is time to see if we can use it on M 11.

TIA

it's a perl app, and most of the cpan dependencies can be installed via synaptic. the one requirement that is causing an issue is the Sane CPAN package. the version in the repos is 0.03 and 0.05 is needed.

tried downloading and compiling it directly from cpan, but ran into issues. i don't have any scanner backends installed which is why i think it's dying.

you can always try to download this and install:

http://search.cpan.org/dist/Sane/

expand the .tar.gz file. run: perl Makefile.PL, then make and if there are no errors, as root make install

gscan2pdf should compile and install then

Looks like an easy backport.
Working on it now.

Here is the gscan2pdf deb which works on either architecture and both versions of the libsane-perl dependency. Install the i386 deb for 32 bit installs or the amd64 one for 64bit installs.

gscan2pdf_1.0.4_all.zip

There are a number of recommended packages that are not hard dependencies. I would certainly install tesseract-ocr djvulibre-bin & unpaper if you want to actually be productive with gscan2pdf. Once it's in the testing CR (tomorrow evening) you can just change your preferences to consider Recommends as dependencies and get them all that way.
