Section: SANE Scanner Access Now Easy (5)
Updated: 14 Jul 2008
The sane-snapscan library implements a SANE (Scanner Access Now Easy) backend that provides access to AGFA SnapScan flatbed scanners. At present, the following scanners are supported from this backend: AGFA SnapScan 300, 310, 600, and 1236s, 1236u, 1212u, e20, e25, e40, e50, e60, Vuego 310s, Acer 300f, 310s, 610s, 610plus, Prisa 620s, Prisa 620u, Prisa 620ut, Prisa 640u, Prisa 640bu, Prisa 1240, Prisa 3300, Prisa 4300, Prisa 5300 and Guillemot Maxi Scan A4 Deluxe (SCSI) (with varying success).
This backend expects device names of the form:
Where special is the path-name for the special device that corresponds to a SCSI scanner. For SCSI scanners, the special device name must be a generic SCSI device or a symlink to such a device. Under Linux, such a device name could be /dev/sga or /dev/sge, for example. See sane-scsi?(5) for details.
For USB scanners the devicename must contain the keyword "usb", as in /dev/usbscanner or /dev/usb/scanner0. For scanners that need a firmware upload before scanning add a line starting with "firmware" followed by the fully qualified path to your firmware file, e.g.
For further details read http://snapscan.sourceforge.net.
The contents of the snapscan.conf file is a list of device names that correspond to SnapScan 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.
