GNUmed will save the digital image (from scanner) into the database and keep 
it in the database. No files will fly around on any harddrive.

On export it will hand the image to a viewer. This viewer is determined by the

patient. It is important to supply some metadata when you import/index the 
files or else it will be very hard.

In a second step you might want to look for abby finereader ocr software for 
linux which might be used ocr the image and import the text along with the

We are very much interested in that deployment and are looking forward to your

There is a directory missing if you installed through synaptic. I miss
