It's something wrong with link to source, becouse the answer is:
Quote:The requested URL /stable/skanlite/0.9/src/skanlite-1.0.tar.bz2 was not found on this server.
There aren't Skanlite version 1 in Ubuntu or Debian repository, too. According to packages.ubuntu.com, the latest version is 0.8.2 (in Quantal) and 0.9 (in Raring), and according to packages.debian.org the latest version is 0.8.2 (in testing and sid).

Just install "grive" what allows you to sync specific directory with Google Drive and then you have it.

I use that for everything what I want to sync with smartphone and netbook. I just copy files to that directory.

With Skanlite 0.8 and Qt 4.8, I can't select anything and I'm forced to scan full pages. Can you reproduce that? I'm on Chakra.

I use skanlite all the time - it's simple and just works.

But...just installed 0.8 from src, and wonder why the ABOUT screen shows 0.7?

Is there a roadmap for skanlite development ?

I'd like to know if multipage support is planed ? and pdf output...

I'm fed up using gtk programs for that...
Is there a way to make a donation action, for all people that wan't that features, to pay for the dev ?

I have developed Skanlite for my own image scanning needs and PDF has not been very high on my priority :(

There is a sleeping playground project in kde svn called SkanSuite that includes a multipage pdf scanning (also based on libksane), but it has not seen any love in a looong time.

I have hoped that somebody with an itch to write and maintain a document scanning application would step up...

Would you think about making it for money ?

I like kde so much, but there are some important apps missing, and for very long time.
No proper scanning app with multipage since kooka, no reliable, stable full integrated browser (rekonq is not yet an alternative...)
It really anoying using gtk apps, that are not well integrated to the desktop. I'm not a good dev, so I'm searching a way of boosting kde ergonomy and adding missing features...

After upgrading my KDE to 4.6.0 and Qt 4.7.1 the window that shows the result after a scan is empty.
Saving the result shows that it is fine.

Hey,

if I select "save without asking for a file name" as save mode, skanlite just does not do that but still shows a preview window instead. Anyone else experiencing that issue?

Cool application, otherwise.

Best regards,
Sven

There is a "preview before save" option that can be disabled :)

Sorry for not testing the 0.5 and 0.6 releases enough.

I hope this last release is in better shape :)

cmake ok, make ok, but checkinstall's last message is:

Installation then is aborted. But the picture is there. So what might be the real error?

Skanlite does not remember the window size, it always defaults to some tiny window with some tiny preview.

I can force the window to start in bigger size but it still does not change its preview size to fill the view area.

Is there a hidden setting for this?
