gscan2pdf - graphical interface to aid in the pdf scanSection: Graphics | Actuality: Linux Mint 19.1 Tessa
Just two clicks are enough to scan multiple pages and then save all or selected pages in a PDF or DjVu file, including metadata if necessary.
gscan2pdf can control conventional or automatic sheet feeder (ADF) scanners with SANE via libsane-perl, scanimage or scanadf and can scan multiple pages in sequence. Shows reduced displays of scanned pages and allows simple operations such as cropping, rotating, and deleting pages.
You can apply optical text recognition technology to scanned pages and save the output in PDF or DjVu files.
Convert to PDF file format using PDF:API2. The final document can be saved in PDF, DjVu, TIFF (multipage), or a graphical format single page image.
1. Scan one or several pages in with File/Scan
2. Create PDF of selected pages with File/Save
The gscan2pdf program is available in the official Ubuntu repository, so it can be installed through the Software Manager of Linux Mint or by using the terminal.
