Software equivalent to PaperPort on Win

Hi folks,

I have been searching for a software from Open Source running on Linux/Unix equivalent to PaperPort/PageMaker/OmniPage/etc. for Win. They are graphic editing software with database integrated. They have a platform/table to retain scanned documents visually and combine them as a file. The file can be saved in many formats. Each page inside the file can be rearranged, i.e. page-1 can be re-inserted as page-13, etc. and all pages will be re-numbered automatically. The pages can be editted both graphically or textwise.

They have a powerful database to search documents on their titiles or contents. The database can be update at night at a pre-fixed time. The documents can be OCR.

To my understanding a graphic editing software such as GIMP can do the job. But the operation would not be so simple and handy.

Any advice???

I too am looking for such an equivalent. Since this was originally posted April 2003 perhaps something has come out since then?

For my part, it doesn't have to be open source. It could be commercial software but run native on Linux.

HI rignes,

Sorry, I already gave up this project.

Sometimes ago, I was told PaperPort has a version for Linux. I haven't checked it.

If NO, another solution is to make it run on Vmware/Wine, the simulator running on Linux.
