Hello Linux Geeksters. As you know, Gscan2PDF is an app for scanning pages and exporting them to PDFs. The user can export scans one by one, in separate PDF files, or export scans all together, in one PDF. The latest version available is Gscan2PDF 1.2.4, which has been recently released.
In this article I will show you how to install Gscan2PDF 1.2.4 on Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr, Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander, Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal, Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin, Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx, Linux Mint 17 Qiana, Linux Mint 16 Petra, Linux Mint 14 Nadia, Linux Mint 13 Maya and Elementary OS 0.2 Luna.
Because it is available via PPA, installing Gscan2PDF 1.2.4 on the listed Ubuntu, Linux Mint and Elementary OS systems is easy. All you have to do is add the ppa to your system, update the local repository index and install the gscan2pdf package. Like this:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:jeffreyratcliffe/ppa
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install gscan2pdf
Optional: To remove the recently added PPA, uninstall gscan2pdf and downgrade all the packages that got upgraded, do:
$ sudo apt-get install ppa-purge
$ sudo ppa-purge ppa:jeffreyratcliffe/ppa
