Section: SANE Scanner Access Now Easy (5)
Updated: 13 Jul 2008
The sane-ibm library implements a SANE (Scanner Access Now Easy) backend that provides access to the IBM 2456 and the Ricoh IS-410, IS-420, and IS-430 flatbed scanners. Support for the IS-410 and IS-430 is untested. Please contact the maintainer or the sane-devel mailing list if you own such a scanner.
This backend is alpha-quality. It may have bugs and some scanners haven't been tested at all. Be careful and pull the plug if the scanner causes unusual noise.
This backend expects device names of the form:
Where special is either the path-name for the special device that corresponds to a SCSI scanner. The program sane-find-scanner helps to find out the correct device. Under Linux, such a device name could be /dev/sg0 or /dev/sga, for example. See sane-scsi?(5) for details.
The contents of the ibm.conf file is a list of device names that correspond to SCSI scanners. Empty lines and lines starting with a hash mark (#) are ignored. See sane-scsi?(5) on details of what constitutes a valid device name.
