Is there some way to import directly from a document scanner.

I know how to scan a document or image and attach it to an email but I am trying to get the data directly from the scanner. Is there a setting or a plugin available?

Thanks

Hi @smokey01

would be fine but I've never heard of such a plugin for Seamonkey.

But it's possible to send directly from XSane as an email.
You could send a copy of the documents to your own email address.
Only an idea.

Thanks norgo.

I am familiar with the email function and it works quite well. Unfortunately it doesn't have an address book or spell check. Sending emails from xsane to onesself is a good option which also works well.

I was hoping to find a scanning plugin for seamonkey mail. I guess one doesn't exist.

I suppose I could write a script that executes xsane mail then loads seamonkey mail with the attachements. Too much work for little gain.

Cheers

Smokey, maybe your scanner has this (Mochi) kind of option? Sounds possible, but scanner specific.

Hi @smokey01

Today I had a look at seamonkey's help page.
The interesting part for your project:

Quote:
Usage: seamonkey [ options ... ] [URL]

-compose [ <options> ] Compose a mail or news message. Options are specified
as string "option='value,...',option=value,..." and
include: from, to, cc, bcc, newsgroups, subject, body,
message (file), attachment (file), format (html | text).


I tried this:

Code:
#!/bin/sh
seamonkey -compose "to=john@example.com,subject='testmail',body='this is a test mail',attachment='/root/my-applications/test.txt',format='text'"

worked really good and an ideal condition for a nice script

@norgo that's pretty much what I had in mind for a script except I would do the xsane bit first.
@matchpoint thanks for your input. I will check it out.
