  1. Hi,

    This is a great linux app. I have and HP all-in-one scaner fax printer and it is so easy to scan as jpg and or covert to pdf. I think gscan is easier to use than xsane.

    Thanks!!!!

  3. How to make multiple page scans with Gscan2pdf?
    I am running Ubuntu 12.04 and just installed the software. It works beautifully if it is a one-page document. However, in a multiple page document, it does not stop to allow for change of pages: it scans page 01 and goes on nonstop scanning page 01 again and again. Tks
