Instructions to Deploy Paper Products

UPDATE: 8/9/11 @ 11:14 AM EST If you are running Windows and are trying to deploy any of my Custom Paper Products, these instructions are now obsolete. I have created a tool for the Deployment of all of my Custom Paper Products (windows only) which is available here. The current version of the tool does allow users to supply the Custom Paper Product to deploy. If you are using a Mac or have access to the SDK still, the following directions can still be used.

Original Article:

The following are a brief set of instructions that are needed to successfully deploy the Paper Products that I have created for the Livescribe Pulse & Echo Smartpens. They are relatively generic. Simply replace with the files from the actual download you use.

  1. Register as a Developer (if you haven’t already).
  2. Download the SDK (if you haven’t already).
  3. Extract the zip file containing the full version of Eclipse from the SDK to C:\Eclipse. There must not be any spaces in this path or deployment may not work.
  4. Follow the instructions in the Getting Started PDF file included in the SDK to finish setup.
  5. Run eclipse.exe (from C:\Eclipse. It will ask for a workspace location, set it to C:\workspace.
  6. Create a new paper project (file –>  new) call it TemporaryAfdHolding and fill in the details requested. Uncheck the background image box and press finish. It will pop up box wanting to go to paper view press ok.
  7. In the bottom left you should see a folder tree, under the top level folder, find the src folder. Right click and select import. Import from Filesystem. Have it import the .afd file you download from the appropriate Paper Product Download Page. You should then open the src folder in the tree and right click on this file. Select deploy to the pulse smartpen (make sure your pen is connected first).
  8. Then download and print either the .ps file (through ghostscript/gsview or acrobat distiller) or the .pdf file (through acrobat or reader) with page scaling turned off.
  9. Write on your newly deployed paper.
  10. Connect your smartpen to your computer and start Livescribe Desktop. The pages you just wrote on this custom paper should show up within a couple of minutes (after the transferring data image disappear.)
  11. Congratulations, you’ve successfully downloaded a custom paper product and deployed it!

If you need any clarification or help, please feel free to post a comment. I’ll do my best to help you!

    Good job!
    But now how do I build my own paper product without this error while deploying -LS_FILE_OPEN_ERROR?
    Thanks

        Rohan,

        Having the same issue with the error. Trying this with the Cornell custom paper products on Windows Vista machine. Firmware and LS are up to date.

        Any ideas?

          That's actually surprising. I've never seen the error in conjunction with the Kass's Cornell paper. I'm honestly not sure what to say, I normally reboot, double check to make sure that the java path variables are all correct.

        Sorry Rohan, lets try that again.

        I'm having the same issue with the LS_FILE_OPEN_ERROR business, and while I've done a bit of research on the forums it all pertains to the actual developer (I assume you) and nothing too specific to our scenario of deploying someone else's custom paper products.

        Here are the links to the articles I've checked out. While they are marked as SOLVED they haven't shed much light on the situation for me. Perhaps, they will for you.

          Strange… this comment of yours does have the avatar and it came through allright. Very strange… The problem with LS_FILE_OPEN_ERROR is really a problem with your specific installed version. I've found 99% of the time, wiping the workspace and starting over does help. Additional things that you can try are to reboot and to check over your java path variables.

            I had this same error, but found that the issue was that eclipse hadn't connected to my pen. Rebooting the system and making sure eclipse has connected to the pen (clic on the spartpen tab on the window to the right of the crop region) fixed the issue.

            Great Job Rohan!

          2. Rohan Kapoor

            Thanks for sharing your solution Guillermo. As I've mentioned, that error is not very descriptive at all and the SDK provides the same error for many different problems with equally different solutions as is evident from the three or so we are discussing here. It's interesting that it gave you that error when the smartpen was disconnected. You would think that would merit it's own error code.

      Hey,

      i had the same problem and solved it.

      1. Close the project in Eclipse
      2. Use the explorer and go to the directory with your project (like ..Utilitiessrc)
      3. Delete the directory ".userdata" and the file "Utilities.afd.wcopy"
      4. Open the project in Eclipse

      This works on my system.

        Alright Rohan, I've gotten one step further with the dreaded LS_PAPER_NONSENSE error.

        Using the advice of Kathy from this post (http://www2.livescribe.com/forums/showthread.php?t=7705) I imported the custom cornell .afds via the "File – New – Project – Livescribe – Livescribe Paper Project from Existing AFD" suggested.

        I'm going to try now to see if the pen will recognize the paper when written upon, via the .pdf printing method.

        Reply
        1. Rohan Kapoor

          That is a work around that will work. I should note that this was written with a slightly older version of the SDK in mind. While the instructions work properly with either version, it would probably be better if I had the alternate method listed as well.

          Glad you got it deployed though!

          Reply
      2. bemental

        Perfect, the pen recognizes the paper and the paper is recognized by the LS Desktop software.

        But now, apperently the printer isn't of high enough quality… this is an office grade LaserJet printer capable of printing 600dpi (as well as ProRes 1200 212lpi)…

        I'll have to search a bit more online to see if I can't find out if:
        a) this printer is even capable
        b) if perhaps I can find another printer… I know of another, larger, copy machine/printer combo that might do the trick. Although are there any better options off the top of your head?

        Thanks again.

          So it does work on Mac? I'm impressed!!

          Did you turn off Page Scaling during the printing? Did you manually tell it that you wanted 600 dpi output? I know my printer will default to 150 dpi (to save toner).

          I use a Brother HL-2170W Series from Windows XP, Windows 7, and Ubuntu 10.04 to print my paper and a larger copy machine/printer combo. Both work beautifully if you disable page scaling and set it to 600 dpi but the copy machine prints it much, much faster due to the increased amount of RAM.

            In the end, I never did actually get the SDK via Eclipse to work by uploading the templates to the pen on the Mac…

            …but syncing the pen DOES work on the Mac, without a problem what so ever (even with the custom papers that you've so GRACIOUSLY created).

            I can only assume that the process would work on the Mac as well, but only if the option is included to import from a previous project.

            Also, I tried printing out the first page of the cornell template on a laserjet color printer at school, and it worked flawlessly when writing and syncing the pen. Too bad that printer is $.25 per page. I suppose my last question for you is, when you print out your own dot paper, does the livescribe readable area (micro dots) appear as actual dots? Even with the 600+dpi .25 a page color laser printer at the university, I still have a "grayed out" area where the dots appear, seemingly "on top" of the actual template.

            Thanks again,
            Andrew

            (Oh, and the .PDF printable templates for the cornell work perfectly, and load up super snazzy fast on other computers I tried)

          2. Rohan Kapoor

            I appreciate the update!! It's good to know that the syncing does work even if it's not officially supported!! Strange that deployment doesn't work at all.

            The dots are actually on top of the actual template and yes they do appear slightly grayed out…

            For the record though, I print in black in white (which is free) so it's much more economical!!

            Also, I didn't make the Cornell Templates, those were made by Kass Lloyd – http://raeky.com . I simply wrote the directions and really pioneered the method. I did also make graphpads, linedpads and have blank pads in the work!

          3. bemental

            Of course. I'll let you know if anything else comes up throughout my endeavors with these templates.

            I'll also CC Kass regarding our progress, these postings and thank him as well for his templates. I've downloaded yours as well and will be deploying them as needed.

            Thanks.

            Rohan,

            Quick question for you regarding the location of the LSD (LiveScribe Desktop – funny) on Windows and where it stores its files at. I'm looking at setting up a DropBox sync between the Windows Vista machine @ school and my Mac @ home, so the libraries sync with each other (as well as managing my custom notebooks and such so I don't have to do it twice depending on where I'm studying).

            What do you think?
            Andrew

          8. Rohan Kapoor

            Andrew:It’s actually called LD à Livescribe Desktop for that very reason… As far as I heard there is a severe incompatibility between the Windows and Mac version of LD. I’m currently using DropBox sync between my three PC’s and was actually just working on a write up explaining how to set it up. It works quite well and I use it for the exact same reason. It addresses your questions and should be up sometime tomorrow once I finish the end of it.Hope that helps,Rohan

    Once I have deployed a custom paper to my pen, do I need to save the TemporaryAfdHolding.afd File or can I simply replace the src file in the TemporaryAfdHolding.afd file I created to create and deploy more, different, types of paper options. Does this make sense?

          The current stance from Livescribe is that that custom papers aren’t officially supported on Livescribe Desktop for Mac. They say that it may work, but it may not work. It’s something that they are working on.Honestly speaking, you will have to try it for yourself and let us know.

    Unfortunately I don't believe my printer is capable enough to print the paper, but I do have a .pdf of the style paper I would like to try. I believe the paper has been successfully uploaded to the pen, I just haven't the means to print the paper to test it out.

    I'll be back at uni next week and will try printing the .pdf on a printer there. I'll keep you posted.

      Well as long as your printer can print at 600dpi, you should be able to do it.I appreciate you keeping me posted. Though I myself am not a Mac user, I find it quite ridiculous that there are difference between the Mac version of Livescribe Desktop and the Windows version. Hopefully, they realize the number of Mac users and fix it for you guys soon.Good luck!

Secondly, my brother (a computer programmer) is also interested and i can call in old favors to get him to help walk me through it (the instructions made perfect sense to him :-/ ). Me? Well believe it or not I can do a "Little" programming, but enjoy ripping other peoples programs to apart to make sure they meet the written specifications lol (yeah I’m the hated program analyst!).

            My hope would be one of two things: building in the ability to deploy AFD files to Livescribe Desktop. An option under tools which allows you to select the AFD file(s) and it then deploys them. Or a standalone executable application that would allow you to select and deploy AFD files. As I said, I’m discussing it with Livescribe and they agree with me that right now, deployment of custom paper AFDs is a painful process. As for the instructions, I admit they are complicated but I think they are easy enough to follow. It gets easier each time you have to deploy them. Good luck deploying these ones; I’m sure you will figure it out!

    2. Rohan Kapoor

      Yes this is the only way to get the pens to recognize custom paper products. There is no way to just copy data files to the correct directory. They have to be loaded onto the pen itself which cannot be done any other way. I know it’s not ideal but it’s something that I’m talking to Livescribe about. The hope is that we will be able to work together to get a more agreeable deployment method soon. For now though: you have to follow the instructions on this page. Don’t worry, it’s a step by step. Just follow the directions exactly, and you should be fine.

    This is exactly what I have been trying to do on my own for a month. Thank you, Rohan. I was able to load the paper into the pen, print the first set of graph paper, and even create my first pencast using graph paper (I am helping develop virtual middle school math courses). The replay of the pencast on my computer was perfect. But…, when I uploaded the file to livescribe.com to share it with others, the paper (background) was blank. No graph lines at all. I have not found this mentioned in any other posts about your application, so I can only assume I have made an error. Can you help with this? Have you heard of this happening before? I thank you in advance for any assistance.

    1. Rohan Kapoor

      Chris, I don't normally use pencasts at all. I haven't had a need to use them and as such have no experience with them in relation to custom paper. I can tell you for sure that this is the first report that I have heard stating this problem. Can I ask you to try to upload the pencast again? Sometimes Livescribe Desktop doesn't upload pencasts correctly (so Livescribe tells me). I'll ask the development team if they know of any limitations in the pencast system causing this problem.

      Try this:

      1. Deleting the /dist/pen folder for the project.
      2. Closing the project (right click close project)
      3. Opening the project (right click open project)
      4. Attempting to deploy the afd file

      That should recreate the AFD and you shouldn't get the LS_FILE_OPEN_ERROR. Also, I believe that the newest release of the SDK solved this problem, so update it if you don't have the latest one.

      I've tried to print your paper projects using Eclipse to a Post Script Printer on Windows 7 (64 bit using 32 bit software) and find that the controls at the bottom of the page do not print. This is true whether it is your projects or those of others. Any suggestions?

      Reply
      1. Rohan Kapoor

        The problem is that you are trying to print the AFD files through Eclipse. They are designed to not have the controls on them so that the controls do not appear in Livescribe Desktop. We (the developers of custom paper) have massive AFD files (lots of vector graphics files inside them) which have the controls in them from which we create and provide the PDF files in the download. You are only supposed to deploy the AFD file and then print the PDF file. That is why you are seeing this with all projects, not just my own. The only solution then is print the PDF file and not to print from Eclipse.

    Hi,

    I need a little paper card (as a business card in max 5 cm B x ca 9 cm L) with all Livescribes commands for Echo pen 8G.
    Can you help me by clip those command-pictures and paste them in such as view and make a pdf file of that so people can download it and print it out. Having such as little business card in your pocket makes that you can use the echo pen even without any notepads, just as a regular pen but with a sound recorder function.

    Because the calculator has a bigger size compared with other commands and take the most place on such as little paper / card, it will be yet better to have this pdf file designed in that way so when you print it double, the calculator will be placed in the back side. So you have all commands in same little "business card".

    Thanks in for hand

    I followed your instruction on a Mac. After I importing the adf file, I only see 1 page under it. Is this normal? Shouldn't it have 25 pages? (I imported the QuarterInchPrintableGraphpad.) Other than that, everything is fine; it can be deployed to my Smartpen and it would record what I write on the printed paper.

    Reply
    1. Rohan Kapoor

      The file that you are deploying is identical for all 25 pages (at least the deployed version is) so you would only see 1 page. That is perfectly normal. Glad to hear that you were successful following these instructions on a Mac.

      Reply
    1. Rohan Kapoor

      That is the intended approach. You will note that the page numbers and the page controls don't appear in Livescribe Desktop. For this reason, it is possible to have the AFD file basically have one page that it allocates to take up all 25 pages. That is just the file for the Smartpen and Livescribe Desktop. The printable file is much more complicated as it includes the page numbers and the controls.

    Reply
    1. Rohan Kapoor

      The LS-File-OPEN error is generally due to the SDK attempting to write the pen's version of the AFD file too quickly. This was due to a duplicate saving logic built into the SDK (Which as far as I know was removed from the SDK.). It looks like you solved it though, so it is likely that it was an isolated incident.

    This sounds like a wonderful idea but I am really quite a novice with computer stuff. I have not tried it (with your instructions) because I first want to know whether it is risky: ie can it interfere with the other notebooks I purchased? If there is no chance of this happening – can a novice be trying anything as fancy as what you have come up with here? (I'm worried I need extra software, or need to be able to understand the software – which I don't!)

    Please help – this would be massive if I could get this to work!

      Hi Yese,

      Most people using Mac have used the same directions just replacing the directories with the appropriate equivalents on Mac. At this point in time however, Livescribe has killed the Developer Program so those directions are now obsolete. The only way to deploy my custom paper products is my Custom Paper Deployment Tool which is Windows only: https://rohankapoor.com/projects/livescribe/custom… My recommendation is to install it on a Windows computer through virtualization or Bootcamp and then deploy the paper from there. Your Mac version of Livescribe Desktop will have no problems using the paper once it has been deployed from Windows.

    Looking at the Livescribe site forums, it soon becomes apparent that you are the paper guru. As a new user and a Mac user, I am a little disappointed with their offerings on self print paper. The livescribe software only prints A4 and whatever I do with the printer driver settings it won't print double sided so you end up with large crude single sided note books. Having worked a lot in Japan, I have a particular fetish for using B5 JIS notebooks which are great for meetings and between A4 and A5 in size. do you know of any templates for this size? Having read quite a few of your posts I appreciate that your paper cannot be printed on a Mac but I can always run the windows software in an emulator such as Parallels to run Windows XP- I assume this paper will then be recognised in the Mac version of livescribe?Sorry for the rambling question, your comments would be much appreciated.

      Thanks for the compliments. I haven't seen any templates (and haven't made any myself) that are that size. My paper can be printed on a Mac with the Mac version of the SDK. Not having a Mac myself, it is a little more difficult for me to provide instructions on how to set it all up. Using my notepads, you can print on both sides of the paper but they will still be "huge."

    Hi

    This has been of great help to me. But I have a problem. I was able to deploy the paper on the Smartpen but as I click on the print/print to postcript, iget an error:
    Input switch error(-2)
    The input switches specified are invalid. Make sure quotes are closed and that parameters that requires arguments have them

    I am trying to print using a brother 165c printer 1200 dpi capable..

    Thanks.. Your comments would be much appreciated./

      You are getting the error because you are not supposed to be printing the .afd file provided in the zip archive. Please instead print the PDF file included in the zip at 600 dpi with page scaling disabled.

    It seems the developer site for livescribe has been discontinued. Any chance I can still get this to work on my mac w/out access to the SDK?

        I have Windows running as a virtual machine, but I don't relish the thought of having to complete all my Livescribe transfers by opening up that virtual machine, just to deploy the custom paper. Do I have to re-install a Windows version of Livescribe Desktop, and then only transfer the notebooks to computer via that version of Livescribe Desktop to make the deployment work? Thanks!

          There would be no need for you to do all of your Livescribe transfers with that virtual machine. You would need to install a Windows version of Livescribe Desktop only to get all the drivers that Windows needs to communicate with the smartpen. You would not transfer any of the notebooks to that version of Livescribe Desktop. Once deployed, you would continue with your normal version of Livescribe Desktop on your Mac.

      The SDK is no longer an active download as Livescribe closed the Developer Program. If you are trying to use it to deploy custom paper, you should use my new Custom Paper Deployment Tool which you can download from here: http://links.rohankapoor.com/deployment/ you are looking to develop something, Livescribe no longer supports custom development so it would be not be worth the time you spend learning the platform. In either case, I no longer have a download location for the SDK and Livescribe has requested that those of us with the SDK not distribute it further.

    Hi Rohan,
    I'm trying to get the custom calculator and settings to work. I already have the Custom Paper Deployment tool install but have no idea how I can get the cal and settings to install or work. Could you kindly advise me what I can do?
    Thanks

      Hi Renji,

      The current version of my Custom Paper Deployment Tool doesn't support installing anything that it doesn't come bundled with. I'm working on an updated version and it will support this. Since you already have it installed, when I update it, the next time you open it, it will update. I don't have a hard estimate on the release date of the next version but it should be soon, sometime within the next few weeks.

      Thanks for your patience!

    Rohan,

    On June 2, 2010 you posted: "If I'm understanding your request correctly, you simply want blank paper with the dot-pattern applied to it? Would you be ok with a small page number in the bottom right corner or would that interfere with your purpose? I would be willing to design and license a couple of these blank ones for you with the SDK." Did you complete a "blank page" without controls on the bottom?

    Thank you for all you're doing to advance this product.

    Dan

      Hi Dan,

      I have created Unlined Notepads, they still have the controls at the bottom along with a small header at the top. I did not create anything completely blank as I felt it would better to identify the paper with the page numbers and I felt that the controls were rather necessary for the paper to feel complete.

      You can download them along with my Custom Paper Deployment Tool: https://rohankapoor.com/projects/livescribe/custom

    Apparently I've come late to the custom paper world, but I am still hopeful to turn some forms I use in my business into custom papers. Is it possible that you do this on a consultancy basis? Thank you.
