Well, I want to resume scanning here, I grabbed the most obvious-and-mentioned 
sudo apt-get install sane sane-utils imagemagick unpaper tesseract-ocr
tesseract-ocr-eng ocrad
I also installed yagf
So, similar to what I was able to do in OpenBook years ago, I want to scan 
sideays pages. So with page4 on the left-and-page5 on the right. Will any of 
these solutions support that option?
Also, I tried purchasing a commercial OCR program from Abbyy  but their Linux 
version is still available for download from  they are not 
providing any more trial demos or supporting other than an sdk.
So, if I can only scan sideways in a commercial, are their other options? I also 
installed LIOS here in Debian. Thanks so much in advance for any guidance
