sane + xsane

Post#1 by Rava » 19 May 2012, 04:09

I created from the slackware files the modules sane-1.0.22-x86_64-2.xzm and xsane-0.998-x86_64-1.xzm

Seems the sane one works well, but the xsane lacks some drivers:

Code: Select all

$ ldd /usr/bin/xsane|grep not

	libnetsnmp.so.25 => not found
	libv4l1.so.0 => not found
	libgphoto2.so.2 => not found
	libgphoto2_port.so.0 => not found
	libv4l1.so.0 => not found
	libieee1284.so.3 => not found
	libgphoto2.so.2 => not found
	libgphoto2_port.so.0 => not found
	libltdl.so.7 => not found
	libnetsnmp.so.25 => not found
And yet again the hunt for these starts anew. *sigh*

What is the best way to find the missing dependencies? Me thinks I can better my approach when it comes to that. :)

I used, as most of the time, http://pkgs.org to get the txz, but sadly it not lists dependencies...
Cheers!

@rava: Gslapt might be your dependency resolution option. If not Crunchbang with apt-get installs xsane easily:

I think there is a sbopkg feature in brokenman's PPM. Maybe you could use it to build xsane with modules. :)

Once you get xsane packed up, I will be happy to use it. Maybe it should be available in standard porteus modules.

When I'm resolving deps manually, I search pkgs.org through google, with a string like 'libgphoto2 site:pkgs.org' or 'libgphoto2 slackware site:pkgs.org'. This searches all text on the page, rather than the package name and description (which is what the search function built into pkgs.org does).

This shows the following packages contain the libs mentioned above:

net-snmp
v4l-utils
libgphoto2
libieee1284

It's odd that slackyd didn't pick these up, they are in the official Slackware repo. Did you run 'slackyd -u' first, to update it?

You could also try building this through PPM, using the slackware page. Hope that helps :)
Please take a look at our online documentation, here. Suggestions are welcome!

Thanks for the heads up.

Had no idea pkgs.org does it like that. Yay! again for search-fu skills and google hacks. :)

Nope, I went straight for the txz converting them into xzm. Usually that works well.

Never did that. Maybe I will look in to that. Cause there is also Gslapt and Crunchbang, like francois mentioned. I will see which of the techniques suits my needs (and laziness) best. :D

Update:

Sorry, folks, me was busy aside from Porteus, so I got nothing done with xsane or any of the other things. (And now I have to get firefox updated to 13.0 as well.... and don't find any slackware repository for that)

But if anyone wants to try get sane and xsane to run, feel free to send me an PM.
Cheers!

You did, but I only find xsane in that .txt. Is sane added to that module already?

Hallo Rava, wie geht's!

If you install the module stack HPPrinter posted by me in http://porteus.org/forum/viewtopic.php? ... t=+Printer you will be able to scan with sane + xsane.

Try it. :D

@wread

Hallo zurück! Wo bist Du her? Dtl? Österreich? Schweiz?


But does it make sense? I have not a single HP printer, just two Canon printers (bubble jet ones, both) and one Epson and one Mustec scanner.

Cheers!

@Rava
Im HPPrinter Packet es sind 13 Modulen. Du kanst deaktivieren die Modulen die nicht zum scannen gebraucht werden: use trial and error method.

Ich machte Nachstudium in der damals TH Hannover in den 60'er Jahren.

Good luck! :wink:

@wread

Oh... 1960, eh? :wink:

@issue:
My HPPrinter "package" prints ok with KDE-4-32 bits
You realize that I use x86_64 XFCe version? All I read in that thread was that it's just a 32 bit version...
And since you only provide one download link me thinks it's indeed just 32 bit... :(
Cheers!

@rava:

Good news. :D I got xsane working on porteus 32bit. As soon as I can I will report the way that I did it and even provide eventually with a module. Xsane works on its own, but it is also integrated in libreoffice and should also work from within gimp. I should get the post done by tomorrow.

Posted after 1 day 18 hours 17 minutes 27 seconds:
See my thread on scanning with porteus:
http://porteus.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=39&t=1336

Or just get the necessary modules xsane-0.998.xzm, sane--1.0.22--0.1.5.xzm, libjpeg-v8a-i486-1.xzm in the following link:
http://www.mediafire.com/#q0o82cs5av966

Posted after 6 minutes 7 seconds:
To get the 32bit modules running under 64bit just use the compat library under /porteus/x86_64/packages:
http://porteus.org/distro-download/down ... 4-bit.html

Posted after 3 hours 16 minutes 40 seconds:
And what about simple-scan 64bit:
