I have just started working with Ubuntu for the last 10 days, with the intention to stop using Windows permanently. So far it has been awesome. I have replaced almost all my Microsoft applications with available Ubuntu apps and some help from Google Docs.
I am experiencing a problem with my Canon CanoScan LiDE 110 Scanner. When I use the scanner in Windows 7, and saved scanned pages of a book as PDF, I can open the PDF scanned page and copy text from it directly to paste at Google Docs or any LibreOffice document. I tried doing the same in Ubuntu using the Simple Scan app. I scanned the page as text in Simple Scan and saved it as a PDF. However in Ubuntu when I open the scanned PDF page, it opens OK, but I cannot copy the texts.
This is quite important for my workflow, as I am a medical physician and I need to study a lot of books.
I would really appreciate it if you can help me with this.
