Asked by Sergey Mitrichev

Saves in PDF, but pages are all blanks (white color). 1 or more pages, no matter. Any dependencies on some PDF libraries?

Hi Sergey Mitrichev, i note the same bug a few weeks ago,

What version of simple-scan bugs ? Have you tried with a new version after updating the system ?

Please note this in the bug section if the pdf output is still blank.

I just filed debian bug #611915, before I realized I should perhaps have started upstream ; the symptoms where the same : the pdf files appeared as empty.

But in fact, the problem was a locale issue : launching with "LANG=C simple-scan" gave good pdf files. The problem in my case seems to be that simple-scan saves localized numbers, hence "pi=3,14159", instead of what the reader expects "pi=3.14159".

Can you check it isn't the same issue?

Can you help with this problem?
