Scan to PC is dead
« on: August 31, 2019, 17:29:23 »
For all practical purposes, the Scan to PC utility is dead and will rarely work.  Nobody is actively maintaining it.  You are free to try it, but if it does not work then you are on your own.  For the reasons outlined in the link below, there is no real motiviation to address the issues.

See this announcement: https://www.bchemnet.com/suldr/forum/index.php?topic=366.0

Additionally (as of June 2020), some of the necessary python2 libraries have been removed from Debian as part of the planned elimination of all python2 code.  Therefore, anyone interested in utilizing this tool would first need to update it to all python3 libraries.  Unfortunately, not all the libraries utilized by scantopc have 1:1 replacements in python3, so it is not just a matter of substituting all libraries directly.

The utilities are python scripts, so the packages are their own sources.  You can manually download the packages if needed:
https://www.bchemnet.com/suldr/pool/debian/extra/su/suld-scantopc_0.4.5-5_all.deb
https://www.bchemnet.com/suldr/pool/debian/extra/su/suld-scantopc-gui_0.4.5-3_all.deb
