Re: Mayan EDMS index reference post

Hi Ralf, you might be able to use the "document.cabinets" function in conjunction with this code: {% if document.cabinets.count == 0 %} None {% else %} {% for cab in document.cabinets.all %} {{ cab.label }} {% endfor %} {% endif %} The above creates a nested cabinets kind of index, maybe in the init...

Re: Mayan EDMS book review

I concur that this is a VERY helpful, and much-needed reference book. Personally I find it helpful as a book to dip into for the parts that I need, and use the PDF readers "find" facility to dip into the sections and point me in the right direction. The thing that is still twisting my brain is the D...

Re: Docker image for 3.2 appears broken

As much as I hate "me too"'s .... but me too... it does definitely appear to be broken.

Hopefully it will be fixed soon... in the meantime I my have to revert back to using the 3.1 tag for now.

Duplex scanning

Hi all, what scanners do people use with Mayan-EDMS? I am on my second scanner now, and I am still having issues with it. I made sure that it was a SANE compatible scanner, and purchased a Canon DR-2580C (uses canon_dr back end). It is detected correctly, and works to an extent, just that I cannot g...

Re: Newbie Questions

Hi Simon, just thought of one proviso on the "OCR is done automatically" ... when you setup the document type, there is an option for OCR. Go to iSystem/Setup/Document Types You will then see "Setup OCR" button to the right of the document type, which if you click on that there is a checkbox: "Autom...

Re: Configure brother scanner as source

Hi, wow, how did you manage to get the brother scanner to be seen... have you installed the brother drivers to get that far? According to SANE the brother MFCs are unsupported... I have had so many issues with trying to get my scanners to work, I am pulling my hair out :/ one thing that I have notic...

Re: Newbie Questions

Hi Simon, the OCR is done automatically when the document is uploaded. If you go to the document a few minutes (CPU/size of document depending), you should see an OCR option at the side... the text content should be in there, from there you can copy/paste the information that you need... I don't thi...

Re: Scanning as input

ok... another update... to get this working, I have created a 'shim' for the scanimage executable in /usr/bin. So what I have done is renamed /usr/bin/scanimage to /usr/bin/scanimage_prog, I have then created a shell script that looks like this: #!/bin/bash scanimage_prog --format=tiff --buffermode=...
