After logout>login of KDE it's in my Menu > Graphics > gscan2pdf Wink

And there is a file /usr/share/applications/gscan2pdf.desktop with:

Hmm ... I have the same .desktop file but nothing on the menu (traditional, not Kickoff or Lancelot).i

[Later addition/edit] I'm writing this from an elderly Compaq AMD64 Turion laptop on which the menu item appeared immediately upon installation of gscan. I've decided that it must be an issue with my machine (64-bit Dual AMD64 6000+, 4G memory, ATI Radeon 4650 with 1G, the HD a rather old Maxtor 80G IDE), especially since I had both the main and devel repos open for a good long while -- not a good thing, as I found out trying to update the other night. So I'm presently making another installation on the 6000+, hoping that the glitch will not be present with better attention to the open repos.

[Even later] And that new installation provided a nice gscan2pdf icon on the Graphics menu immediately after I installed it from the Developer Repo. Yes, I immediately unchecked that repo!  Grin

Hope I'm not too late with the suggestion, but have you set up a default template for your work? Or are you experiencing changes with the stock "Untitled" template that opens by default after installation?

Atolboo, John, Craig:

If you have time, could you install gscan2pdf from the Developer Repo and tell me whether it appears on the Graphics menu after installation. The developer and I have been in conversation, and he cannot duplicate its failure to appear. For him, it's there. I have uninstalled and reinstalled to no avail.

He is solving the other two glitches I reported. Aside from that it's working great!

Found it there. Thanks, atolboo. I have reported a couple of minor glitches to bug report 8029:

1. An "End of file reached" error message as the scan is completed.
2. Lack of a menu item after installation - even after a Windows-style reboot. Must be started from the CLI.

50  General / Wish list / Re: wishlist: scanner programs on: March 24, 2011, 17:56:48 PM
So, I received an e-mail notice (from bugzilla) that gscan2pdf had been approved and placed in the repositories. I went to the Package Manager, updated, no gscan2pdf. Have queried bug 8029 in case I'm not understanding.  Huh?

Do you have pavucontrol (Pulse Audio Volume Control) installed? Start it and click the "Configuration" tab. Change the Profile from "Analog Stereo Duplex" to "Analog Stereo Output."

I think John posted the flock of updates. Smiley I don't know what to tell you. Do you have PiSi set to check for updates every so many hours? Not using Pardus on a regular basis would explain the 63 updates.

Why did you post "Solved"? Is it solved?


It is solved. Really. When I began writing, I thought I'd be asking for help, so I documented the steps I already had taken. When unchecking the Devel Rep solved the problem entirely, I decided, rather than deleting what I had written, to submit it as "solved" in case someone else had the same problem.

The Devel Rep was enabled shortly after I starting to use Pardus (February 20). I had asked for gscan2pdf and somehow thought that it might show up there prior to release so I could be a "requester-tester."  Coincidentally, I have just received notice that it is now in the repos.  (Maybe my question a few hours ago about why the release seemed to be stalled resulted in some attention to it.)

Pisi was set to check for updates every 360 minutes, which must be default. I have re-set it to every 30 minutes. Still, the question: Does that mean that once I log in, Pisi will only check AFTER 30 minutes? or is there an immediate check upon login?

53  Assistance / Configuring Pardus / Re: [Solved] 63 updates available: "upgrade not possible" on: March 24, 2011, 13:44:04 PM
The problem is caused by:
Dependency poppler version >= 0.16.3 of texlive-bin cannot be satisfied

Updating repository: pardus
Updating repository: PardusUser
Updating repository: Devel Rep
I'm using 2011 and two repositories: Pardus and Pardus User.
I expect Devel Rep to be the source of the problem Huh?

To clear this, could you give the result of
pisi lr


Yes, the Devel Rep was the problem. Marking it inactive allowed the upgrade when all else failed.

# pisi lr
pardus [active]
PardusUser [active]
Devel Rep [inactive]

I'm using 2011 and two repositories: Pardus and Pardus User.

It has been a while since I've gotten updates. I've not been using Pardus full time due to the lack of gscan2pdf and glabels. And, as I say, the update notification device in the panel apparently is not functioning, so It's only when I get curious and do a manual check - or see a note such as the one you posted about the large flock of updates - that I get the updates.

55  Assistance / Configuring Pardus / [Solved] 63 updates available: "upgrade not possible" on: March 24, 2011, 03:53:54 AM
Seeing that there were a lot of updates just released, I opened the Package Manager for 2011, selected the updates tab, waited, finally saw 63  items. I selected all packages and clicked "Upgrade Package(s)" -- but a message appeared "Upgrade not possible."

So I try "pisi clean" and then "pisi upgrade." Here is the result:

pisi --debug
Program terminated.
No command given                                                                                         
Please use 'pisi help' for general help.

This reminds me of the early days of urpmi in Mandrive. Dependency issues. I've tried to separate texlive-bin, busybox, dhcpcd, and timezone for installation, but none will install.

So, next I "pisi rebuild-db" but that does not allow the upgrade to take place.

Finally, I disable the Developer Repository that I had install to attempt to get gscan2pdf. I update the repositories, and WHAM, it works. I'm being updated/upgraded as I type.

I just wish pisi had given me information beyond "Upgrade not possible," "Please use 'pisi help' for general help," and "Use --debug to see a traceback."

One other minor thing: Why does'nt the pisi alert in the panel alert me to updates? It did ... once, but it seems I have to manually go after them with the GUI or terminal.

I have added just a moment ago a comment/question to the bug asking whether there is an issue preventing release. It really would be nice to know if this is going to happen. Fedora 14 just upgraded gscan2pdf to the next level (0.9.32 I think).

Anyway, things seemed imminent a month ago.

57  General / Wish list / Re: wishlist: scanner programs on: March 11, 2011, 16:39:16 PM
gscan2pdf appears to be in (final?) review, but I really don't understand the status of it at the moment. Anyone know for sure?

58  Assistance / Hardware / Re: wireless lost on reboot on: March 09, 2011, 03:51:34 AM
You could try a file in /home/your_username/.kde/Autostart (P2011) or /home/your_username/.kde4/Autostart (P2009
iwconfig wlan0 essid ..... key s:.....
exit 0
This file should be executable in Properties > Permissions.

I'm not skilled at scripting, so the problem may be the connection between the keyboard and the chair  Wink; but I could not get a script to invoke the command successfully. I followed your pattern, double checked the command syntax, placed it (without extension) in the folder you suggested for 2011, made it executable, rebooted, ... nothing happened.
59  Assistance / Hardware / Re: wireless lost on reboot on: March 09, 2011, 03:46:59 AM
I think you can file a bug report. Good if the Pardus developers be aware of problems.

Bug 17248.

60  Assistance / Hardware / Re: wireless lost on reboot on: March 04, 2011, 04:40:45 AM
Thanks to both of you!

I will file the bug report ASAP and the script when I return to the house.

By the way, while visiting my brother today I tried two USB wireless dongles, one a Linksys G and the other a RaLink chip on a no name dongle. He could not get the Linksys to work on anything he had tried (Ubuntu, Mint, and I don't know what else). I plugged it into this notebook and it recognized and configured both dongles with no problem. His SSID is broadcast and he has WPA2 security. (I already had configured my Broadcom 4318 for his network, so the way was paved; but still that's about as painless as it gets.
