Paperwork battles the increasing stacks of paper
Paperwork was developed to manage the paperless office – a dream as old as desktop PCs.
The idea behind Paperwork  harks back to the dream of the paperless office: You scan incoming correspondence, invoices, and loose sheets then run them through an optical character recognition (OCR) tool that converts the content into digital form. An application then merges the image data and text in a superimposed form and saves it as a PDF.
Certain pitfalls await, however: For sufficiently good OCR you need the highest quality scans or photographs possible of the text pages. A good scanner with at least 600dpi resolution is preferred, (although 300dpi will work in some cases), and the OCR software needs to be the best fit for the job at hand. When Paperwork launches, it first searches for Tesseract . If the program cannot find this very powerful OCR engine, the program falls back to Cuneiform. In most cases, Tesseract will give better results.
On Arch Linux, you can install Paperwork easily from the AUR. On Ubuntu, you will not currently find Paperwork in the repositories, and there is no PPA. Your best chance is to read the installation manual .
