As a long-time user of Mandriva Linux and a proponent of KDE, I want first to compliment the Pardus developers for Pardus 2011, my first acquaintance with this excellent distribution. What led me to try it was the combination of the kernel version 2.6.37, KDE 4.6, and LibreOffice. I am quite happy with the smooth operation of Pardus as a whole and hope that the developers will be rewarded with a quickly growing popularity that rivals Mandriva, Fedora, and OpenSUSE as well as the various Debian distros. It seems to me that Pardus should have a place in the top category of Linux KDE4 distributions.

There are a couple of barriers that keep me from using Pardus as my full-time Linux: two scanning programs lacking in Pardus 2011. Thus, I am posting here for the first time as a new member of the forum to declare my (short) wish list.----

(1) Xsane (www.xsane.org/cgi-bin/sitexplorer.cgi?/download/) is being developed for Pardus 2011, so I understand from reading in this forum, and I am eager to see it in the repository.

(2) Gscan2pdf (http://sourceforge.net/projects/gscan2pdf/files) has never been available to Pardus, as far as I can tell. The only mention of it that I can find is in a single forum post from August 2008. Because of its ability to scan multiple pages to pdf, this little program is very useful to me and something I need quite often.

For me these two items will make Pardus even more functional than it already is.

I think there should be a user contributed repository so that any one can compile from source and upload for others' benefit.

I think there is a user repository but in german. is it possible to provide that user website/repository in multiple languages?

I think you can write and fill in a request for the programs here:
http://bugs.pardus.org.tr/

Its often the best way to get new programs implemented to Pardus.

Welcome, David!

XSane will be available soon. See Comment #7: http://bugs.pardus.org.tr/show_bug.cgi?id=16606#c7

For gscan2pdf is already a package-request existing!
Would be great, if everybody who is interested in this wonderful program add his comment in the package-request to speed up the request: http://bugs.pardus.org.tr/show_bug.cgi?id=14244http://bugs.pardus.org.tr/show_bug.cgi?id=14244

I'm not sure whether you're using the i686 version of Pardus, but if you are you will find xsane in the http://paketler.pardus.org.tr/pardus/2011/devel/i686/pisi-index.xml.xz repo. I haven't installed it myself, but it's definitely listed there.

It's there if you look inside http://paketler.pardus.org.tr/pardus/2011/devel/i686/
It's the developer repo, which is different from the default stable repo. I suppose it hasn't been tested yet.

It's also in the x86_64 devel repo. http://paketler.pardus.org.tr/pardus/2011/devel/x86_64/pisi-index.xml.xz

Thanks I find it now.

Hmmm..., this is what is returned when I go there:

Code:
[tt]XML Parsing Error: not well-formed
Location: http://paketler.pardus.org.tr/pardus/2011/devel/x86_64/pisi-index.xml.xz
Line Number 1, Column 1:

\uffff7zXZ[/tt]

Whether I click the link, or copy and paste into the browser, that is the result.

That's the link to use if you want to add it as a repo. To look inside the directory, you have to back up a little. http://paketler.pardus.org.tr/pardus/2011/devel/x86_64/

Whether I click the link, or copy and paste into the browser, that is the result.

There are two ways to install this package.

1. Start Firefox and go to http://paketler.pardus.org.tr/pardus/2011/devel/x86_64/  (<< or select this link) Grin
    Select the package xsane-0.998-9-p11-x86_64.pisi  and mark "Open with Package Manager +OK.

or
2. Open a console and enter
Code:
sudo pisi it http://paketler.pardus.org.tr/pardus/2011/devel/x86_64/xsane-0.998-9-p11-x86_64.pisi -y

This should install the package.
And for i686 replace all x86_64 by i686.

atolboo and Craig, thanks. Xsane is now installed, whittling down my wish list! And it even recognized my Epson 2580 (-- once I plugged it in) Grin. Another plus for Pardus 2011.
