Is there a forum in which to discuss SANE front ends and in particular
the best ways to get specific tasks done?
My own particular problem:
I want to do what I think is called "scan to archive". I have way too
many documents on paper and I'd like to capture them and discard the
paper. This paper is just half a lifetime's accumulation -- it isn't
a systematic corpus.
I think I want to capture to image files (possibly PDF) but supplement
this with OCRed text to facilitate full-text search. I need a format
that will still be useful for decades into the future. I want the
capture process to be as easy as possible -- otherwise I'll never get
Based on recommendations from allan noah, I've splurged on a Fujitsu
fi-6130. It works out of the box, with no setup, on my Fedora 15 box.
Now I have to figure out how best to use it. This page is useful, but
only the barest start:
So: is there a good forum (or mailing list) where I could share
experiences and advice with others?
