Subject: New Simple Scan Designs Emerge; Seeking Devs to Implement Them

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Simple Scan is one of my personal favourite and perhaps even one of the "essential" apps on the Linux desktop for me. It does what it says on the tin: it's simple and it scans, with a nice preview system and enough options to be decently functional. Some new designs for the app have emerged and they are looking quite nice indeed.

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

In my last article, I described Autoquote, a script that converts typewriter (or "straight") quotes to typographic (or "curly") quotes, which was prompted by a question on the Scribus open source desktop publishing software's mail list.
