View Full Version : [ubuntu] Flatbed scanner compatibility

January 7th, 2013, 03:15 PM
I'm looking to get a flat bed scanner, I need info on these two questions.

1. I'm looking for an inexpensive flatbed scanner/wand type that is compatitible with ubuntu 12.10.

2. That beind said, is does not need to be color, just B&W. BUUUTT I want to be able to scan PDF's in the smallest file sizes I can get.

I've seen many, but most will export a large file size, say 1mb or larger. My current printer/copier/scanner can do sizes down to <100kb. I've researched all the tools to shrink/scale down PDF's and none seem to reach this ability.

Thanks for any info that can help....
