Details

Description: No files are saved. Tried to select pages or save all, PDF, JPG or PNG, but no, it just doesn't write any files. There's no error message (in GUI or in the terminal), nothing looks out of the ordinary. It used to work a month ago or so.

Additional info:
* package version(s) 2.10.2-1
* config and/or log files etc. N/A, it doesn't log anything.
* link to upstream bug report, if any N/A

Steps to reproduce: Scan something and then try to save it.

A workaround:
0. Don't close gscan2pdf, or else you may lose all your scanned pages.
1. Look into the settings where gscan2pdf has its temporary directory.
2. Locate the session directory in the temporary directory. It's called gscan2pdf-xxxx.
3. The session directory contains .pnm files. You can copy them from there and use e.g. pnm2png to make something "processable" out of them.
