This setup is meant to scan remotely over the web with my scanner connected to the Pi every time someone visits the website.
This is done using the PI as a server.
The workflow consists of 3 parts:
1. cgi that fires a bash script (needs to be done)
2. bash-script that scans the image
3. php / html that gives back the image
Setup Apache for serving as usual.
sudo apt-get install sane
plug in the printer
(if luckily sane knows the printer you can just use it, otherwise install drivers manually)
! Didn't work with the PZI Scanner because of missing linux drivers
the bash-script of the scanning looks like:
sudo scanimage --device "pixma:MG4200_192.168.178.59" --resolution 200 --mode Color > /var/www/html/scan.tiff convert -rotate 90 scan.tiff scan.jpg
