The idea of having a simple scan utility was behind the development of, well, Simple Scan - the scanning tool installed by default from 10.04 on (Applications ‣ Graphics ‣ Simple Scan). Simply scan as many pages as you want and choose PDF as file format when saving. Another slightly less simple program that offers additional features like text ...

You can't edit text in a JPG, but you remove the text and add new text. For images, try gimp (open source alternative to Photoshop). Open the image with gimp, then use the eraser tool to erase the old text. Then use the text tool to add new text. Or, use inkscape, which is a vector graphics program (similar to Adobe Illustrator). Create a new SVG file and ...

Try this sudo ufw logging on You should see access in /var/log/syslog. But this are raw logs, which only show you individual access. UFW itself hasn't any tool to summarize these access to an useable report. Also I don't know about a tool which can do this.

Just got this going today. This is how I got it working over wireless network, running Xubuntu 12.10 64-bit. (No Canon drivers were needed). After installing xsane: The sane man pages refer to "backendname" a lot. http://www.sane-project.org/sane-mfgs.html gives the backend name for the 6250 as "pixma" man sane-pixma (seems to be a man entry for each ...

You could try briss. It's pretty simple, but does the job. It's a GUI app though. Download the zip file and extract to a folder of your choice and start it: java -jar briss-0.9.jar

You could play around with ImageMagick's montage tool. You'll want to install the imagemagick package before you go any further. At face value, you just need to ply montage with input files and then give it an output file: montage scan1.jpg scan2.jpg output.jpg but montage can get really powerful. You can pass along various translation arguments if you ...

LogicalDOC Community could be used for this purpose. Allows you to catalog and tag many file types and has a built-in free OCR. One of the features that I really like about this package is the full-text search engine that can run natively language specific searches. There is a good documentation for installation on Ubuntu, which doesn't involve special ...

"Easy to use" is in the eye of the user, but xsane provides this functionality. Choose multipage where it says viewer (or hit CTRL-M), and it shouldn't be too difficult to figure out from there.

The command is convert -separate image1 image2, no need for further options.

Thank for the info. I think the following lines does the job (for the brscan2 package) - Ubuntu 12.04 amd64, Networking DCP-560CN: sudo cp /usr/lib64/libbrscandec2* /usr/lib sudo cp /usr/lib64/libbrcolm2* /usr/lib sudo cp /usr/lib64/sane/libsane-brother2* /usr/lib/sane

Install the latest HPLIP. Unplug the USB cable. Activate wireless printing on the printers touch screen and follow the instructions . Run HP-SETUP. Select "Wireless/802.11".

Regarding the removing part... simple-scan is for scanners. <600kb on disc. system-config-printer-gnome is for configuring printers. 1.6Mb on disc. It is part of the gnome desktop though so might not be that easy to get rid of. cups 1.5.0-8ubuntu6 is 8Mb. It might also be a hassle to remove since it is sort of a system wide system all programs that have ...

Lexmark supports this printer with linux drivers. Use this link to install the latest version. Support Page Then sane should work. You may also need to add yourself to the lp user-group. I would also check for a file in the /.sane/xsane folder for a file name like Lexmark:S505.drc, this would be the scanner configuration for SANE.

I just delved into the packages, they do provide a sane module for canon multi-function scanners. And the second package does contain the right files. Firs thing though, cd dpkg -i is complete rubbish, that's not a valid command and would never work no matter what. I'm editing it out of the other answer so other people aren't confused by it. I would get ...

I've answered my own question! Selecting Scan > Text now creates PDF files by default that are compressed. My preference for 'Text' is persisted, meaning that I can now quickly perform many scans without needing to manually update my settings per scan. The reason why Simple Scan was defaulting to JPEG format previously was because I was scanning as an ...

You can use Simple Scan. Its an easy application to use, and it included in Ubuntu. Just click on dash, search for simple, and then click on Simple Scan. Happy scanning. Simple Scan doesn't have OCR capabilities. For OCR you can try Tesseract, Lios, or Clara OCR.
