  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.


  2. What settings should I put on the ‘geometry’ section of the ‘scan document’ dialogue? I need to know what numbers to have in ‘top left x’ and top left y” bottom right x’ and ‘bottom right y’ and ‘page width’ and page height’. I simply want to scan ordinary A4 douments! Help please!! 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

  4. Wow, THIS is exactly why Linux will never be adopted into the mainstream computing world.
