That is true, Gene. However, gscan2pdf implements a sort of gui for unpaper:

http://gscan2pdf.sourceforge.net/

That is not a perfect gui for unpaper, but it is already very useful.
Actually, I could import my book in pdf into gscan2pdf, having then,
inside gscan2pdf, applied unpaper successfully.

Gscan2pdf is available from the usual repositories, and it is a gui to
produce a multipage pdf from a scan.
