PostPosted: Thu 10 May 2012, 10:18    Post subject:  Simple Scan for Puppy
Subject description: Tested in Lucid 528
 

This is the simple scan commonly found in PCLinuxOS, Ubuntu, and other linux distros. I lifted this directly out of PCLinuxOS 2012 and planted it into puppy. Works fine. Please note that this does not supply any scanner drivers. I recommend installing xsane and hpliplite scan pets before using simple scan.

This is NOT a pet, but is a tar.gz folder containing the components and a ReadMe file that instructs on where to place the contents of the tar.gz. There are 6 components in the tar.gz (1 folder and 5 files) that you will need to manually place in various directories. If anyone wants to make a PET out of this, please do post back here and i will upload the PET and give credit where credit is due. Thanks.

Yes, it has all the files - except: the binary (or scrpt).

How to run this without a binary and/or script?

Crying or Very sad

No lucky guy?

XArchive-Wrapper to extract the .tar.gz exited with an error!

Again no binary or script!

What are you doing?

OK! Try again. I have rebuilt the tar.gz, uploaded it again, and then successfully extracted it. The problem was that a folder and the executable were both named simple-scan. Xarchiver and File Roller did not like two files with the same name, even though one was a folder and one was an executable. So i fixed it by renaming the executable with capital letters to Simple-Scan. I then also modified the Simple Scan.desktop file to point to the upper cased executable. Everything tested and works. Please be patient; i think it is fixed now. Very Happy

Works good! Thank you very much. I will put your download link as well as my mirror in the first post. Thanks again for the help. I have not yet had time to study the creation of pets.

I've recently started making Pets and its really simple.

---

If you already have a compiled program you can use

Code:
dir2pet program-directory


the naming convention is- program-version-architecture

architecture is the chipset the program is compiled for - the default being i486.

for example,

simple-scan-2.32.0.2-i486


---

If you compiled the program using-

./configure

make

and you can use, new2dir make install
this puts the program in its own directory rather than installing straight into the linux directory structure.

more info.

Cool
