Digital Camera Scanner

Posted 12-23-2005 at 08:36 PM by LiquidSlumber

Hey everybody I wrote the following script to basically turn my digital camera into semi-ok scanner. I've found it to be quite functional when used with a 3 MP digital camera. I hope it works for you too. It's been a while since I've written this script, but I think if you just change the 2 variables in the code that are flagged with "!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!", it should work just fine for you. Also you will need to have image magic installed on your computer.

Completed 2 years at LQ! A note of thanks.

Posted 12-22-2005 at 09:06 PM by vharishankar

I just noticed that I had completed two years at LQ recently (2 years 5 days as of today).

It's been a long journey since I first installed a magazine distro based on RedHat 6.1 to now when I multi-boot 4 distros on my machine (Debian, Gentoo, Arch and Suse) and I have a laptop with Suse as well. Linux has become second nature now. I hardly ever use Windows at all.

I've also made a lot of friends on this forums, had a few flame wars here and there, picked up a few fights...
