Scanning multiple documents/images into single PDF with Linux

This is just a great tip if you need to scan in multiple pages and create a single PDF file while using a single page scanning (flat bed scanner) with you brand of Linux.

Just fire up the scanner (assume it is all configured and works fine with for example SANE) and then open an Open Office Writer document. Then select Insert->Picture->Scan->{Select Source|Request} to scan the single page into your .odt document.

When all finished adding in the pages, you can then export the document as a PDF via File menu!
