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=...

Re: Scanning as input

and after another lightbulb moment, I thought that I would have a think about what is happening, and it turns out that the scanimage command is being done by the user "mayan" and I was testing under the user "root"... funny enough, the following command fails: sudo -u mayan scanimage -v --format=jpe...

Re: Scanning as input

Today I have received the scanner... much quicker than I expected... just trying to set it up, but it doesn't seem to want to work. The scanner is seen within the docker image: sane-find-scanner # sane-find-scanner will now attempt to detect your scanner. If the # result is different from what you e...

Re: Scanning as input

OK, I have just bit the bullet and I have just ordered myself a Canon imageFORMULA DR-2580C Document Scanner. Does anyone have any experience with using this with Mayan? I've look at the SANE compatibility, and this is what it says: DR-2580C USB SCSI 0x04a9/0x1608 Complete Hardware provides: Gray/Co...
