I am using Ubuntu 12.10 and LO 22.214.171.124 Every month or so our church has a music practice which basically involves me reproducing sheet music and word sheets, then adding a photocopying licence number to each piece of music. Typically I might scan 16 to 20 pages in a session. I am using the program "Simple Scan" to do this. In the past it was straight forward to scan the music to a pdf document then use LO pdf importer to add the required text. The last few times I have tried to do this the document just opens as a series of blank pages. I know the pdf is OK because other pdf viewers show it.
IMO LO is the wrong tool. Xournal is ok, but painful. Enable the universe repository if you haven't already, and then: $ sudo apt-get install pdftk pdfchain $ pdfchain <http://www.pdflabs.com/tools/pdftk-the-pdf-toolkit/> <http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/precise/man1/pdftk.1.html> <http://pdfchain.sourceforge.net/> ... -- For unsubscribe instructions e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org Problems? http://www.libreoffice.org/get-help/mailing-lists/how-to-unsubscribe/ Posting guidelines + more: http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Netiquette List archive: http://listarchives.libreoffice.org/global/users/ All messages sent to this list will be publicly archived and cannot be deleted
