Installation questions

Hi I’m having a little trouble installing OpenPaperwork.
My platform options are MacOS 10, Windows 10 and Raspbian 10 buster.

Have attempted Raspbian but don’t seem to be able to get any joy!
On raspberry…

  1. After running the paperwork libinsane install still getting
    ValueError: Namespace Libinsane not available

  2. “pi@masterpi:~ $ flatpak run work.openpaper.Paperwork
    error: app/work.openpaper.Paperwork/arm/master not installed”

  3. Have attempted Windows 10 but get a sendrequest error when running the installer

On Raspbian, if you use flatpak, you don’t need to install Libinsane. It’s already part of the Flatpak container.

However there is one thing you need to know. Raspberry systems use ARM processors. However I don’t make Paperwork builds for anything else than amd64. So you cannot use the instructions from Gitlab as is.

ARM builds are available on Flathub. It’s less up-to-date (only the latest stable version, no continous builds).

So in the instructions from Gitlab, you just have to replace:

flatpak --user install


flatpak --user install

And it should work :slight_smile:

Regarding Windows, downloading works just fine on my side. So I can only assume that something on your side is blocking the download. You can try downloading from your browser to see what happens.

Best regards,
