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

NAME
       sane-ibm	- SANE backend for IBM and Ricoh SCSI flatbed scanners

DESCRIPTION
       The  sane-ibm library implements	a SANE (Scanner	Access Now Easy) back-
       end 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.

DEVICE NAMES
       This backend expects device names of the	form:

	      special

       Where  special is either	the path-name for the special device that cor-
       responds	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.

CONFIGURATION
       The contents of the ibm.conf file is a list of device names that	corre-
       spond  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.

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

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

       /usr/local/lib/sane/libsane-ibm.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_IBM
	      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.
