Review -> Excellent

I found this plugin excellent, it is a button that is added at the end of the toolbar - it can replace completely the attachment button with the additional feature of a scanner button.
As improvements I would suggest:

  • Make the scanner configurable per user (at this moment is configurable per org)
  • If there is just one scanner in list it could scan directly instead of showing the list
  • Is it possible to make configurable the quality of the scan? (in order to have littler attachments)
  • More complex for future -> ability to cut the scanned image (when the scan is for example a little receipt)

Remote saned

I want to share my experience configuring to use remotely:

  • had problems running it from eclipse because of java7 requirement (I'm running eclipse with java6) fixed the dependencies and sent patch to developer - and it worked very straight from eclipse
  • then I installed the plugin in my cloud server and found that (OF COURSE!) my cloud server cannot access my local IP scanner address
  • But then, happily solved the issue:
    • Configured the local saned to use fixed data ports -> file /etc/sane.d/saned.conf - assigned data_portrange = 10001 - 10002
    • Configured a tunnel from cloud server to my local machine sharing the scanner, tunneling ports 6566, 10001, 10002
    • Configured the scanner as localhost and voilà it worked!
