TBE Scanner – Linux Installation Instructions
On The Client Computer Running Linux:
- Make sure SANE is installed.
- Make sure “bash” interpreter is in /bin/bash ie. “which bash” Probably don’t need to worry about this one.
- Put the TBEscanner.psl file in the .PowerTerm-config-dir which is a hidden directory in the user’s home directory.
- Put the “TBEscanner.sh” bash file in /usr/bin and make it executable ie. “chmod +x TBEscanner.sh”
- Create a folder called pages in the users home directory and mount it to the samba share folder called PAGES. You can edit the /etc/fstab file to automatically mount in when they bootup so you don’t have to do it manually.
Example : //192.168.50.192/PAGES /home/paul/pages cifs username=[uname],password=[pw] 0 0
- If using PowerTerm Interconnect for Linux then set Connect With PowerTerm to “Powerterm Interconnect (very rare)” in the user flags. Don’t need to do this anymore.
- Make sure “sed” is installed. TBEscanner.sh bash file uses this.
- Check if they have libtiff-tools. You can check for tiffcp. If not then use Synaptic Package Manager and do a search for libtiff and install libtiff-tools.
- Run scanimage -f %d on the command line to get the name of the device(s)
- Run scanimage –help –device-name [device name] and check that the TBEscanner.sh will work with the device specific paramaters.
