sane(7)			 SANE Scanner Access Now Easy		       sane(7)

NAME
       sane - Scanner Access Now Easy: API for accessing scanners

DESCRIPTION
       SANE  is	an application programming interface (API) that	provides stan-
       dardized	access to any raster image scanner hardware. The  standardized
       interface  makes	 it possible to	write just one driver for each scanner
       device instead of one driver for	each scanner and application.

       While SANE is primarily targeted	at a UNIX  environment,	 the  standard
       has been	carefully designed to make it possible to implement the	API on
       virtually any hardware or operating system.

       This manual page	provides a summary of the information available	 about
       SANE.

       If  you	have  trouble getting your scanner detected, read the PROBLEMS
       section.

TERMINOLOGY
       An application that uses	the SANE interface is called a SANE  frontend.
       A  driver  that implements the SANE interface is	called a SANE backend.
       A meta backend provides some means to manage one	or  more  other	 back-
       ends.

SOFTWARE PACKAGES
       The  package  `sane-backends' contains a	lot of backends, documentation
       (including the SANE standard), networking support, and the command line
       frontend	  `scanimage'.	  The	frontends  `xscanimage',  `xcam',  and
       `scanadf' are included in the package `sane-frontends'.	Both  packages
       can	 be	 downloaded	 from	   the	    SANE      homepage
       (http://www.sane-project.org/).	Information about other	frontends  and
       backends	can also be found on the SANE homepage.

GENERAL	INFORMATION
       The  following  sections	 provide  short	descriptions and links to more
       information about several aspects of SANE.  A name  with	 a  number  in
       parenthesis (e.g.  `sane-dll(5)') points	to a manual page. In this case
       `man   5	  sane-dll'   will   display   the    page.    Entries	  like
       `/usr/local/share/doc/sane-backends/sane.tex'  are  references  to text
       files  that  were  copied   to	the   SANE   documentation   directory
       (/usr/local/share/doc/sane-backends/)  during  installation. Everything
       else is a URL to	a resource on the web.

       SANE homepage
	 Information on	all aspects of SANE including a	tutorial and a link to
	 the	SANE	FAQ    can    be   found   on	the   SANE   homepage:
	 http://www.sane-project.org/.

       SANE device lists
	 The SANE device lists contain information about the  status  of  SANE
	 support  for  a  specific device. If your scanner is not listed there
	 (either supported or unsupported), please contact us. See section HOW
	 CAN  YOU HELP SANE for	details. There are lists for specific releases
	 of SANE, for the current development version  and  a  search  engine:
	 http://www.sane-project.org/sane-supported-devices.html.   The	 lists
	 are also installed on your system at  /usr/local/share/doc/sane-back-
	 ends/.

       SANE mailing list
	 There	is a mailing list for the purpose of discussing	the SANE stan-
	 dard and its implementations: sane-devel.  Despite its	name, the list
	 is  not  only	intended for developers, but also for users. There are
	 also  some  more  lists  for  special	topics,	 however,  for	users,
	 sane-devel  is	 the  right  list.  How	 to subscribe and unsubscribe:
	 http://www.sane-project.org/mailing-lists.html.

       SANE IRC	channel
	 The IRC (Internet Relay Chat) channel	#sane  can  be	found  on  the
	 Freenode  network  (irc.freenode.net).	It's for discussing SANE prob-
	 lems, talking about development and general  SANE  related  chatting.
	 Before	asking for help, please	read the other documentation mentioned
	 in this manual	page. The channel's topic is also used	for  announce-
	 ments	of  problems  with  SANE  infrastructure  (mailing  lists, web
	 server, etc.).

       Compiling and installing	SANE
	 Look at /usr/local/share/doc/sane-backends/README and	the  os-depen-
	 dent  README  files  for  information	about compiling	and installing
	 SANE.

MISCELLANEOUS BACKENDS
       dll
	 The  sane-dll	library	implements a SANE backend that provides	access
	 to an arbitrary number	of other SANE backends by dynamic loading. See
	 sane-dll(5).

       net
	 The  SANE network daemon saned	provides access	to scanners located on
	 different  computers  in  connection  with  the  net	backend.   See
	 sane-net(5) and saned(8).

       pnm
	 PNM  image reader pseudo-backend. The purpose of this backend is pri-
	 marily	to aid in debugging of SANE frontends. See sane-pnm(5).

       pint
	 Backend for scanners that use the PINT	(Pint  Is  Not	Twain)	device
	 driver.   The	PINT driver is being actively developed	on the OpenBSD
	 platform, and has been	ported to a few	other *nix-like	operating sys-
	 tems. See sane-pint(5).

       test
	 The SANE test backend is for testing frontends	and the	SANE installa-
	 tion.	It provides  test  pictures  and  various  test	 options.  See
	 sane-test(5).

       v4l
	 The  sane-v4l library implements a SANE backend that provides generic
	 access	to video cameras and similar equipment using  the  V4L	(Video
	 for Linux) API. See sane-v4l(5).

       Also,	have   a   look	  at   the   backend   information   page   at
       http://www.sane-project.org/sane-supported-devices.html and the list of
       projects	in /usr/local/share/doc/sane-backends/PROJECTS.

CHANGING THE TOP-LEVEL BACKEND
       By  default,  all SANE backends (drivers) are loaded dynamically	by the
       sane-dll	meta backend. If you have  any	questions  about  the  dynamic
       loading,	 read  sane-dll(5).  SANE frontend can also be linked to other
       backends	directly by copying or linking	a  backend  to	libsane.so  in
       /usr/local/lib/sane.

DEVELOPER'S DOCUMENTATION
       It's  not hard to write a SANE backend. It can take some	time, however.
       You should have basic knowledge	of  C  and  enough  patience  to  work
       through the documentation and find out how your scanner works. Appended
       is a list of some documents that	help to	write backends and  frontends.

       The  SANE  standard defines the application programming interface (API)
       that is used to communicate between frontends and backends. It  can  be
       found   at   /usr/local/share/doc/sane-backends/sane.ps	(if  latex  is
       installed   on	your   system)	  and	 on    the    SANE    website:
       http://www.sane-project.org/html/	       (HTML),		    or
       http://www.sane-project.org/sane.ps (Postscript).

       There	is    some    more    information    for    programmers	    in
       /usr/local/share/doc/sane-backends/backend-writing.txt.	 Most  of  the
       internal	 SANE  routines	 (sanei)   are	 documented   using   doxygen:
       http://www.sane-project.org/sanei/.   Before  a new backend or frontend
       project is started,  have  a  look  at  /usr/local/share/doc/sane-back-
       ends/PROJECTS  for  projects  that are planned or not yet included into
       the   SANE   distribution   and	  at	our    bug-tracking    system:
       http://www.http://www.sane-project.org/bugs.html.

       There  are  some	links on how to	find out about the protocol of a scan-
       ner: http://www.meier-geinitz.de/sane/misc/develop.html.

       If you start writing a backend or frontend or any other part  of	 SANE,
       please contact the sane-devel mailing list for coordination so the same
       work isn't done twice.

       If your device isn't found but you know that it is supported, make sure
       that  it	 is  detected by your operating	system.	For SCSI and USB scan-
       ners, use the  sane-find-scanner	 tool  (see  sane-find-scanner(1)  for
       details).  It prints one	line for each scanner it has detected and some
       comments	(#). If	sane-find-scanner finds	your scanner only as root  but
       not  as	normal	user,  the  permissions	 for  the device files are not
       adjusted	correctly. If the scanner isn't	found at  all,	the  operating
       system hasn't detected it and may need some help. Depending on the type
       of your scanner,	read sane-usb(5) or sane-scsi(5).  If your scanner (or
       other device) is	not connected over the SCSI bus	or USB,	read the back-
       end's manual page for details on	how to set it up.

       Now your	scanner	is detected by the operating system but	not  by	 SANE?
       Try  scanimage  -L.   If	the scanner is not found, check	that the back-
       end's name is mentioned in /usr/local/etc/sane.d/dll.conf.  Some	 back-
       ends  are  commented  out  by default. Remove the comment sign for your
       backend in this case. Also some backends	aren't compiled	at all if  one
       of  their  prerequisites	 are  missing.	Examples include dc210,	dc240,
       canon_pp, hpsj5s, gphoto2, pint,	qcam, v4l, net,	sm3600,	snapscan, pnm.
       If  you	need one of these backends and they aren't available, read the
       build instructions in the README	file and the individual	 manual	 pages
       of the backends.

       Another	reason for not being detected by scanimage -L may be a missing
       or wrong	configuration in the backend's configuration file. While  SANE
       tries  to  automatically	 find  most scanners, some can't be setup cor-
       rectly without the intervention of  the	administrator.	Also  on  some
       operating systems auto-detection	may not	work. Check the	backend's man-
       ual page	for details.

       If your scanner is still	not found, try setting the various environment
       variables  that	are available to assist	in debugging.  The environment
       variables are documented	in the relevant	manual pages.  For example, to
       get  the	maximum	amount of debug	information when testing a Mustek SCSI
       scanner,	set environment	variables  SANE_DEBUG_DLL,  SANE_DEBUG_MUSTEK,
       and  SANE_DEBUG_SANEI_SCSI  to  128 and then invoke scanimage -L	.  The
       debug messages for the dll backend tell if the mustek backend was found
       and  loaded at all. The mustek messages explain what the	mustek backend
       is doing	while the SCSI debugging shows the low level handling. If  you
       can't find out what's going on by checking the messages carefully, con-
       tact the	sane-devel mailing list	for help (see REPORTING	BUGS below).

       Now that	your scanner is	found by scanimage -L, try to do a scan: scan-
       image  >image.pnm.   This command starts	a scan for the default scanner
       with default settings. All the available	options	are listed by  running
       scanimage  --help.   If	scanning aborts	with an	error message, turn on
       debugging as mentioned above. Maybe the configuration file  needs  some
       tuning,	e.g.  to  setup	 the path to a firmware	that is	needed by some
       scanners. See the backend's manual page for details. If you can't  find
       out what's wrong, contact sane-devel.

       To  check  that	the SANE libraries are installed correctly you can use
       the test	backend, even if you  don't  have  a  scanner  or  other  SANE
       device:

	      scanimage	-d test	-T

       You  should  get	 a list	of PASSed tests. You can do the	same with your
       backend by changing "test" to your backend's name.

       So now scanning with scanimage works and	you want to  use  one  of  the
       graphical  frontends  like  xsane, xscanimage, or quiteinsane but those
       frontends don't detect  your  scanner?  One  reason  may	 be  that  you
       installed two versions of SANE.	E.g. the version that was installed by
       your distribution  in  /usr  and	 one  you  installed  from  source  in
       /usr/local/.   Make  sure  that	only one version is installed. Another
       possible	reason is, that	your system's dynamic loader  can't  find  the
       SANE  libraries.	 For  Linux,  make  sure that /etc/ld.so.conf contains
       /usr/local/lib and does not contain /usr/local/lib/sane.	 See also  the
       documentation of	the frontends.
