Not natively.

But if you have it set up via TWAIN there are many methods

I have used NAPS2 very often, and according to that search, it also supports command a CLI so give it a go and see.

Re: Scanning through command line

Hi Joe,

 

I installed NAPS2 and trying to run the below command which gives me an error.

 

naps2.console --output "C:\test.pdf"

Error :  The specified profile is unavailable or ambiguous. \r\nUse the --profile option to specify a profile by name.

 

Can you please help me with this?

 

Thanks,

Divya

Does NAPS2 work in the GUI via TWAIN?

 

I haven't used anything with a CLI outside of a few Mac Terminal commands and Linux rights issues since the 90's.

 

Their support site for the CLI portion has this:

 

 

-p, --profile {name}
This specifies the name of the profile to use when scanning. Profiles are defined using the GUI. If this option is not specified, the most-recently-used profile from the GUI is selected.

e.g.
naps2.console -o "F:\scanned receipt.pdf" -p "Canon MP495 (color)"

Thanks Joe.

 

I had not set-up a profile, which was causing the error. It is working fine now.
