Looking for typographic modules

Looking for some typographic modules I ran into these two


But as far as I remember there are two modules for making graphical node Titles.

I ran into these to interested enough to read some day.

I know not much about colors. Yes there is RGB and YMCK but why are some pages ok in firefox and not ok in safari.

It has to do with color profiles.

This program is working for me. No need for scanimage anymore. My CanoScan LiDE 30 seems to work again under Ubuntu. Just take care of the parameters in de dialog when scanning from within gscan2pdf. Scan Document

Internet Explorer blues

Just build a new theme with zen. It all went smooth. But being more a techy then a designer I only tested with FireFox, Gnome Web Browser (Gecko 1.8), Opera, Safari and forgot IE 6 which I have through ie4linux. Guess what ... it broke with IE 6.

Yes I know ... IE is out there for real so you better test. But it is a drag for sure. The designer uses IE 7 where it looks ok. So maybe in the near future we are saved a drag or two :-)

ppm to pdf

ppm stands for Portable Pixmap among others like Page Per Minute or Perl Package Manager or ... But I need a pdf from some scanned images. Some searching through Synaptic Package Manager on keys like 2pdf and todpf Unfortunately gscan2pdf has a GUI but it works. So fireup gscan2pdf, add some images, and click the 'pdf' button.

scanimage to the rescue

As I have an old CanoScan LiDE 30 and troubles under Ubuntu with SANE I have to use scanimage. It is know as as

scanimage --help
-- last line --

To scan a A4 which is the standard paper size over here is need to use

scanimage -l 0 -t 0 -x 215 -y 297 --resolution 150 > myimage.ppm

gives file size of 6 MB

Problem's I have so far is in the output size of the above line. The mode defaults to color so the scans are huge.

scanimage -l 0 -t 0 -x 215 -y 297 --resolution 150 --mode Lineart > myimage.ppm

It's often a drag to know all these command line utilities and their switches. So in this book I collect these pain in the but commands.
