gscan2pdf - A GUI to produce a multipage PDF or DjVu from a scan.


Five clicks are required to scan several pages and then save all or
a selection as a PDF or DjVu file, including metadata if required.

gscan2pdf can control regular or sheet-fed (ADF) scanners with SANE via
libimage-sane-perl, scanimage or scanadf, and can scan multiple pages at
once. It presents a thumbnail view of scanned pages, and permits simple
operations such as cropping, rotating and deleting pages.

OCR can be used to recognise text in the scans, and the output
embedded in the PDF or DjVu.

PDF conversion is done by PDF::API2.

The resulting document may be saved as a PDF, DjVu, multipage TIFF file,
or single page image file.

Changelog for 2.8.0:
* Interpolate colours according to OCR confidence in HSV space.
* Limit zoom to 100 to avoid errors like:
  "drawing failure for widget 'GtkBox': error occurred in libfreetype"
* Also update text position and rectangle when updating bounding box.
* + button to add to text layer
* + preference to disable device list cache
* + mini-wizard if device not found
* Fix save as PS. Closes Debian bug #962151
 (Failure to save: unitialized value $SETTINGS{"ps_backend"})
* Update to Hungarian translation (thanks to csola)
* Update to Ukrainian translation (thanks to Yuri Chornoivan)
