@Pejuko
Still the same error. Thank you for your efforts. Could you explain how to build ScanTailor on Windows.

@Misty
I successfully built ScanTailor with Homebrew but where is the binary stored. I dont see a mac os typical App-bundle. How do I run it?

See scantailor/packaging/windows/readme.en.txt
I recomend Visual Studio 2008 Express Edition steps, as I wasn't successful with Mingw GCC.

@La_Tristesse: It's stored in /usr/local/bin, which is one of the standard locations for Unix programs. You can launch it from the commandline just by typing scantailor

If you want an icon for it, you can right-click on it and choose "Options - Keep in dock".

Can somebody post their compiled, Lion, version of Scan Tailor Enhanced? When I compile mine, none of the buttons have graphics.

Thanks!

I use Windows XP.Does "original mode" mean keep page unchanged(not trimmed ,nor enlarged)?
Why I can't run it after installing?
And how to run it in scantailor-cli?Could you give me pictures step by steps?Thanks!

Unfortunately it does not prevent original page size yet. I'm planning to implement simple page detection in near future.
As a workaround you can estimate and set margins by hand.

This version of ScanTailor is built on Win7. La_Tristesse had also problem running ST on XP. Ask him if he was successful with compilation on XP or you have to built it yourself from source codes.

just run scantailor-cli -h from command prompt. CLI version does work on XP?

New version of scantailor enhanced released.
New features:
* cli version can get image file names from directory, aguments or stdin
* pagedetect patch which allows detect page in black margins or switch off page content detection and keep original page layout. To detect and keep original pages from command line try: scantailor-cli --disable-content-detection --enable-page-detection --enable-fine-tuning --margins=0 images outdir/

I've marked this release as -pre because there are still some bugs in gui version (cli version should be fine).

Can ST enhanced be installed side by side with ST? Or will it overwrite or in some lesser way mess with the preexisting ST install?

"pagedetect patch which allows detect page in black margins"

I don't understand what that means. Is there some sample image of what this new feature selects compared to the default feature?

No, but this new features are disabled by default.

It trims black (or dark) borders and remembers info about the page size which can be used later. ScanTailor's content detection detects "only" content and throws away information about anything else. New page size is then computed as the biggest content from all pages and current content is then realigned. It is impossible to keep original page size/layout. Pagedetect patch enables this. You can now either disable content detection and sets the margins to 0 or let the content detection enabled (and get rid of more noise) and also enable auto margins feature which computes margins as difference between detected borders of content and detected page borders in original image.
