sane-hp4200(5)		 SANE Scanner Access Now Easy		sane-hp4200(5)

NAME
       sane-hp4200 - SANE backend for Hewlett-Packard 4200 scanners

DESCRIPTION
       The  sane-hp4200	 library  implements  a	SANE (Scanner Access Now Easy)
       backend that provides  access  to  the  following  Hewlett-Packard  USB
       flatbed scanners:

	      ScanJet 4200 C
	      ScanJet 4200 Cxi
	      ScanJet 4200 Cse

       More   details	can   be   found   on	the  hp4200  backend  homepage
       http://hp4200-backend.sourceforge.net/.

       This is BETA software. Keep your	hand at	the scanner's plug and	unplug
       it, if the head bumps at	the end	of the scan area.

       If  you	own a scanner other than the ones listed above that works with
       this backend, please let	us know	this by	sending	 the  scanner's	 exact
       model   name   and   the	  USB	vendor	 and  device  ids  (e.g.  from
       /proc/bus/usb/devices, sane-find-scanner	or syslog) to us. Even if  the
       scanner's  name	is  only  slightly different from the models mentioned
       above, please let us know.

CONFIGURATION
       The contents of the hp4200.conf file is a list of usb lines  containing
       vendor  and  product  ids that correspond to USB	scanners. The file can
       also contain the	names of device	files that correspond to  an  HP  4200
       scanner.	  Empty	 lines and lines starting with a hash mark (#) are ig-
       nored.  The scanners  are  autodetected	by  usb	 vendor_id  product_id
       statements  which  are  already included	into hp4200.conf.  "vendor_id"
       and "product_id"	are hexadecimal	numbers	that identify the scanner.  If
       autodetection does not work, add	the device name	of your	scanner	to the
       configuration file, e.g.	 /dev/usb/scanner0.

FILES
       /usr/local/etc/sane.d/hp4200.conf
	      The  backend  configuration  file	 (see  also   description   of
	      SANE_CONFIG_DIR below).

       /usr/local/lib/sane/libsane-hp4200.a
	      The static library implementing this backend.

       /usr/local/lib/sane/libsane-hp4200.so
	      The shared library implementing this backend (present on systems
	      that support dynamic loading).

ENVIRONMENT
       SANE_CONFIG_DIR
	      This environment variable	specifies the list of directories that
	      may contain the configuration file.  Under UNIX, the directories
	      are separated by a colon (`:'), under OS/2, they	are  separated
	      by a semi-colon (`;').  If this variable is not set, the config-
	      uration file is searched in two default directories: first,  the
	      current	working	  directory   (".")   and   then  in  /usr/lo-
	      cal/etc/sane.d.  If the value of the environment	variable  ends
	      with  the	directory separator character, then the	default	direc-
	      tories are searched after	the explicitly specified  directories.
	      For example, setting SANE_CONFIG_DIR to "/tmp/config:" would re-
	      sult   in	  directories	"tmp/config",	".",   and   "/usr/lo-
	      cal/etc/sane.d" being searched (in this order).

       SANE_DEBUG_HP4200
	      If the library was compiled with debug support enabled, this en-
	      vironment	variable controls the debug level  for	this  backend.
	      Higher debug levels increase the verbosity of the	output.

	      Example: export SANE_DEBUG_HP4200=4

BUGS
       Tested only with	Linux.

       Only 8 bit color	mode works.

       Scanning	is slow	due to backtracking.

       Send   bug   reports   to   the	 sane-devel   mailing  list:  sane-de-
       vel@lists.alioth.debian.org.
