A camera scanning application.

  • Take new pictures from the camera or the gallery
  • Colorized, monochromatic and black/white pictures
  • create documents consisting of several pages
  • Reorder and copy pages
  • Export to PDF

This version is more or less feature complete (i.e. it contains all features that I need), so the next release will be 1.0.

Because openssl 1.1 is required, the app will only work on SailfishOS 4.x.



There are two main weak points of this app:

  1. A lot of icons are missing or very bad. If you are good at designing icons, help would be really appreciated.
  2. All image manipulation algorithms are currently only quick and dirty hacks and have been implemented by a graphics algorithm idiot (me). Any help with improving the algorithms is highly welcome.

Malakay's picture

So, does it have some solution? :)

Malakay's picture

Okay, how to start it from console?

fifr's picture

you need some terminal app (e.g. FingerTerm) and then run "harbour-fotokopierer" from the command line. It should show some more or less useful log output. Maybe there is a hint why the pdf-export fails

Malakay's picture

so, here it is:
I did:
turned on app, make a picture and next save as pdf

fifr's picture

Ok thanks. I think I found the problem. For some reason opencv compiled two incompatible versions of libjpeg, and using them for pdf-export didn't work ...

Malakay's picture

So, i have installed it finally. But - few problems occured:
1) image processing is really slow. I think that user planetos (developer of Imageworks) could help you to make those algoritms better :)
2) when I generate PDF, it tells me "error creating pdf file" and PDF cant be opened, because its damaged

fifr's picture

Thanks four your comments.

  1. I know but I'm merely calling opencv ... I doubt that I can be faster than them. Well, of course there are some ways to reduce the amount of work to be done, but there are limits.
  2. I cannot reproduce that. Could you start the app from the console and see if there is some error message?
fifr's picture

I just released a new version (with a bunch of new bugs ;)) that is compiled for 3.4 (except on i486, here the compilation of opencv fails for some reason)

Malakay's picture

Thanks, tomorrow i will try :)

Malakay's picture

Could you be so kind please? I use older sfos version because of stability and no problems, in sfos 4 are still some not solved issues :(

fifr's picture

That is probably the reason. I compiled this version with the latest sdk. Maybe I can use an older one.

Malakay's picture :)

fifr's picture

Which version of Sailfish do you use?

Malakay's picture

Installer told me that nothing provides Any way how to solve this? Pkcon refresh didn t help

mathieujallois's picture

Hope 64bit will come

fifr's picture

I'm working on it. Just recompiling for aarch64 didn't work because for some reason the camera does not work anymore (I've probably done something stupid). I do not have that much time, currently, so please be patient.

Jarod976's picture

Excellent application, functional and easy to use

explit's picture

Please build also i486 version!

glanternier's picture

This app really rocks !!! You should take it to Jolla Harbour!

yomark's picture

Very nice! I was missing an app like this, it's very easy to take a picture, (sort of)correct perspective/cut and make it very easy to read. Thanks a lot!

PoEditor, really? Well I don't have the hacking skills obviously needed to join translation team, but I do have a ready to use Swedish translation.

fifr's picture

Thanks a lot.

csg1976's picture

Rokua seems to cause trouble camera-wise.

fifr's picture

Thanks, should be fixed in 0.2.2.

Ezreal's picture

Not clear, not very good

deedend's picture

Wow this app is amazing, thank you! (Xperia 10)

felixw's picture

Looks very promising. Thank you.

me_on_the_road's picture

Your app is great, thank you!
The power consumption is very high and the CPU gets hot. Seems to be related to camera problems. I had this issue on advanced camera before the last update. Unfortunately the auto-function doesn't work on my XA2
