Gscan2pdf 1.8.7 Released! How to install it in Ubuntu

Gscan2pdf, a simple GUI tool to produce PDFs or DjVus from scanned documents, has reached the new 1.8.7 release that is primarily comprised of bug fixes and some improvements.

Gscan2pdf 1.8.7 highlights k verzii:

  • Add units to scan and edit paper dialogues.
  • Remove unsupported libsane-perl offered as Frontend choice
  • Fixed support for Poppler (pdftops) as postscript backend.
  • Remove “reload recursion limit” option in Edit/Preferences. Set reload recursion limit as triangular number of number of scan options. tj. if there are 5 scan options, the recursion limit is 5+4+3+2+1=15
  • Fixed crash with scanimage frontend due to empty cache
  • Ghost save button, rather than hiding save dialogue if all pages removed.
  • Fixed bug causing profile dropdown to be cleared after setting profile
  • Filter out integers from tool warnings, analogous to the hex warnings from unpaper.
  • Fixed visibility of options in save dialogue (again).
  • Right mouse click in thumbnail panel makes the page range (e.g. in save dialogue) default to “selected”.
  • Take filename of PDF to email from default filename settings (and therefore from metadata). If this produces a blank filename, use “document.pdf”.
