fpSystem - scanimage
« on: September 14, 2017, 05:06:26 pm »

I did search the internet, this forum, and I can not find a solution to my problem. When I scan from my Ubuntu 16.04 AMD64 from the command line with the command

scanimage --batch > /home/yves/out

It works fine. When I do this from within Lazarus I don't get any images, without the --batch option, but with other options it works fine:

fpSystem('/usr/bin/scanimage "--batch" > /home/yves/out');    // doesn't work

fpSystem('/usr/bin/scanimage -- resolution 100 > /home/yves/out');     // works fine
Thanks for helping,

Ok, I did some experimenting and found the solution. I hope I can help someone with this solution in the future:

  cmdexe:='scanimage -b --resolution=100 --format=tiff';

The redirection must be removed when batch scanning from the ADF.
