The scanning application and libkscan library which were formerly included in kdegraphics – KDE/kooka.

Another prob is that different scanner offer different scan options which leads to different sizes for the scan options window. I prefer the “divider” type of adjustment, you slide one smaller, the other one zcan bigger. It would be unfair not to correct them, wouldn’t it! I assume you want pdf’s like you might get from openoffice or so What I really wanted was exactly that: You won’t be able to do word searching. Furthermore, your scanner must be recognized by Knoppix, as described in Lesson 2.

About kooka, I’m not so sure if it is a bug what I see, there might be just an issue with a configuration file.

The image will appear to the screen. It requires some time to move the scanner to a free area somewhere and attach it to a USB port. Scan an image to PDF I use gnome; is there a similar program in gnome? Downloads Support Community Development. When started, Kooka opens a three-frame window with a menu kookw to the upper left and a toolbar directly below it. To my knowledge in some jurisdictions there is the concept of “fair use” which includes quotes of ill-defined length.

A New Scanner with XSANE and Kooka

I had many hair pulling hours of frustration trying to get good scans from Kooka. It offers support for different OCR modules.

The time now is Libkscan, a autonomous part of Kooka, provides a scan service for easy and consistent use to all KDE applications. As I seem to be not the only one with this problem, it seems to be worth attacking it: It kioka also be used for OCR optical character recognition.

You might post the error messages you’re getting when “The K programs don’t work”.

Scan an image to PDF

When you click in the “Kooka” window top right at Help and then on “Kooka Handbook” you – sorry – get an old version of the manual. This is great to hear!!! It seems to have better and more scanner support than sane. But copying has never been a frequent requirement in this SOHO and I have regained a bit of desk space.

Let me add also the feature request of an easy way to use kooka as too photocopy machine. The left frame provides the gallery. And thanks to the help of the folks at SANE-project. Start Kooka from the main menu or enter the command kooka.

This preview is meant to be used for the setting of the scan limits and helps to determine the settings of the Gamma, Illumination and Contrast. When I copy something it is either 1 for my own personal temporary koka because I don’t want to risk loss of or damage to the original or 2 to forward to a friend along with attribution, which I consider not only “fair use” but advertisement for the source. Yast will handle including the needed kooa to run a program.


That would help us help you resolve this problem.

Is ‘kooka’ an image or a PDF program? There is also an OCR application tesseract which was released into the open source community some time recently well, somewhere early I think. The frame to the lower right is shared by the OCR optical character recognition and the thumbnails, which can be loaded into the image viewer with a simple click of the mouse.

This is indeed professional software! Kooka has a print button, and XSANE allows access to Gimp with which one can print at least in theory; this is something I haven’t yet pursued. When you do not see this window, then the scanner is probably not recognized.
