Re: Linux Bookscanning Guide

I had similar needs but for a different audience so I ended up also writing a guide to book scanning using free software. In the interests of avoiding us all doing this many times, I put everything up on github: https://github.com/wikey/bookscan Patches are most certainly welcome and, if there is in...

Re: Introducing djvubind for djvu file creation

Agreed, but as noted here Tulon is still pretty much a one-man show. It would be great to get him some development support, especially as the Scan Tailor userbase continues to expand. Absolutely. If we had dev hours, that's where we'd put them. Hopefully we will have some of those in the near futur...

Re: Introducing djvubind for djvu file creation

BKRPR, are you still working on this ? No longer actively under development. The lead developer had twins right after the last version released. Oddly, development slowed :) At this point, Scantailor is what we were moving towards anyway so there is not much incentive to pull developer time our way...

Re: Introducing djvubind for djvu file creation

also blogged and, for what it is worth, I'm in love with scantailor+djvubind. This is some fine work.

Re: Scan Tailor

I'm happy to help with any scan tailor testing but am running linux so I can't make use of the .exe builds. Is there a tar ball somewhere, or a version control tree I can pull releases from?

Re: Want to help me with an algorithm?

I think I may abandon this effort also, since it looks like my dewarping work on Scan Tailor is working very well. :) Well, modular work is always great, especially since the software to do all of these tasks is still really fluid, but getting this algorithm into any workflow is a great gain and it...

Re: Want to help me with an algorithm?

As you can see, the correction worked perfectly, except that the corrected image shows barrel distortion. That could be due to the lens, but an easy fix is to correct based on more tiles (I chose a single tile, the entire checkerboard). Here's what I need: an algorithm that will pick out the coordi...

Re: 2nd Gen - Glass platen, switch/power hub

Wow, that electronics work looks amazing. I would certainly love to have a single button to push on my rig. In terms of your planten, I noticed that you have the main pieces meeting in an |_ fashion in the center. When I have tried similar setups I always get asymmetrical join lines in my pictures, ...
