Section: SANE Scanner Access Now Easy (5)
Updated: 11 Jul 2008
sane-avision - SANE backend for original Avision and Avision OEM scanners (HP, Minolta, Mitsubishi, UMAX and possibly more) flatbed and film scanners.
This file is a short description for the avision-backend shipped with SANE.
The sane-avision library implements a SANE (Scanner Access Now Easy) backend that provides access to various Avision scanners and the Avision OEM scanners labelled by HP, Minolta, Mitsubishi or Fujitsu.
It is fully big-endian aware and in every-day use on PowerPC and SPARC systems.
I suggest you hold one hand on the power-button of the scanner while you try the first scans - especially with film-scanners!
The configuration file for this backend resides in /etc/sane.d/avision.conf.
Its contents is a list of device names that correspond to Avision and Avision compatible scanners and backend-options. Empty lines and lines starting with a hash mark (#) are ignored. A sample configuration file is shown below:
# this is a comment option force-a4 option force-a3 option disable-gamma-table option disable-calibration #scsi Vendor Model Type Bus Channel ID LUN scsi AVISION scsi HP scsi /dev/scanner usb 0x03f0 0x0701
This backend expects device names of the form:
Where scsi-spec is the path-name to a special device or a device ID for the device that corresponds to a SCSI scanner. The special device name must be a generic SCSI device or a symlink to such a device, for example on Linux "/dev/sga" or "/dev/sg0". The device ID is the ID returned by the scanner, for example "HP" or "AVISION". See sane-scsi?(5) for details.
The program sane-find-scanner helps to find out the correct scsi or usb device name.
A list with supported devices is built into the avision backend so normally specifying an ID should not be necessary.
Example: export SANE_DEBUG_AVISION=7
