Description:

KScannerButtons is composed of a daemon plus an optional KDE frontend for monitoring your scanner buttons so that actions can be taken in response to button presses, like:
- on touch copy
- email a scanned document
- run kooka
- scan & run the gimp (or krita)

It's composed of a daemon (sanebuttond), a frontend that will display an icon in the systray and a dialog box to configure and launch the daemon.

It is based on the button monitoring capabilities found in some SANE backends. The front-end is developped using Kommander.

It has been developped with the avision backend and an HP 5300C scanner.
From version 0.9.5, it has also been tested succesfully with the hp3900 and the plustek backends.
It may work with other backends also. Please report your experiences!




Changelog:

0.9.5:
  • Graphical interface
    - added a button to refresh the list of scanners
    - translated into spanish thanks to Jonathan Bravo Lopez
    - translated into czech and brazilian portuguese thanks to Carlos Laué

  • Backends
    - works also with hp3900 backend! (thanks to Jonathan Bravo Lopez)
    - works also with the plustek backend! (thanks to Carlos Laué & Klaus Layer)

  • Command line
    - add --help and --debug options to sane-nb-buttons. --debug will help at knowing the way the various backends handle the buttons.
    - the test script path was not taken from the configuration. fixed. Improve this script.
    - add information about using from the command line, debugging and testing new backends in README
    - The daemon script is now located in ~/.kscannerbuttons
    - Reworked the Makefile: "make install" now install the files in "standard" places. An icon is created in the K menu, under "Graphics" (/usr/share/applnk/Graphics/). "make kdeinstall" still exists.
    - it was sometimes necessary to plug/unplug the scanner after stoping the daemon from the GUI. fixed.


  • 0.9.4: Fixed the broken default actions created at first run. Note: if you need to reset the default actions, remove the section [/usr/local/bin/KScannerButtons.kmdr] (and entries below) in ~/.kde/share/config/kommanderrc with your favorite text editor.
    Fixed the broken KScannerButtons.desktop launcher.

    0.9.3: Some more bug fixes (test mode was no more working since 0.9.2). Enhancement of the test buttons script.

    0.9.2: Finished the replacement of obsoleted Kommander APIs.
    When run using ksystraycmd, there was a bug in the generated script. nothing happened when pressing a button. fixed.
    Add a --script-arg command line switch to the daemon sanebuttond in order to pass additional arguments to the script. This is used by KScannerButtons to pass its dcop id. Better default sanebuttonsd.sh script

    0.9.1: Little bug fix for those who had a more recent version of KDE than mine (replaced obsoleted APIs: addListItem(s) replaced by insertItem(s)). Also, the default 'one-touch copy' action was not actually printing, but saving into a postscript file. This has been fixed.

     Button-press lost

     
     by crmandal on: Mar 29 2007
     
    Score 50%

    The program runs, docks into the system tray, etc, but fails to detect that scanner buttons have been pressed.

    Mine is KScannerButtons 0.9.4

    I have a Canoscan LiDE 25. It works fine with xsane.

    The `About' says:
    This program allows your computer to manage the buttons present on most of scanners (when the buttons are recognised by your SANE backend)

    How do I know that the buttons are recognised by my SANE backend?

    I found that /usr/local/bin/sanebuttonsd does recognise button presses. When called with a script (--script tmp/echoArgs.sh, my own simple script to echo it command line), it passes the argument '-button' but nothing more.

    I edited ~/bin/sanebuttonsd.sh to introduce the case:
    *)
    dcop $DCOPID KommanderIf "setText(QString,QString)" sb "Default action: Running one-touch xsane... Close application before pressing another button."
    xsane $SANE_DEFAULT_DEVICE
    dcop $DCOPID KommanderIf "setText(QString,QString)" sb "done. Scanner is ready."
    ;;

    Now xsane starts when any of the buttons is pressed.

    How do I get it to identify the particular button that was pressed?

    Also, I do not get to see any of the messages that should possibly be shown, such as: "Default action: Running one-touch xsane... Close application before pressing another button." or "done. Scanner is ready."

    Hi
    I think the newly published version may solve your problems.
    If I'm not wrong, your scanner uses the plustek backend, which works now (as said one of my users).
    If you still have problems, please read the README file, where I explain how to test the buttons with the --debug command line option.
    bye

    Anyway you gave me the idea to add a default action to the script. Thanks!

    Are there any current plans about integrating this into Kooka?

    It's a great app, but it would be nice if it was integrated into Kooka by default!

    Hi
    I won't integrate it myself as I don't have the time, but you can use kooka in the configuration in order to scan with kooka when you press a button.

    Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
     Yes, unity is alien technology!
     It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
     Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
     Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
     Gnome 3 default shell is much better
     I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
     None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
