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

NAME
       sane-snapscan - SANE backend for	AGFA SnapScan flatbed scanners

DESCRIPTION
       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).

DEVICE NAMES
       This backend expects device names of the	form:

	      special

       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.

	      firmware /usr/local/share/sane/snapscan/firmware.bin

       For further details read	http://snapscan.sourceforge.net.

CONFIGURATION
       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 consti-
       tutes a valid device name.

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

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

       /usr/local/lib/sane/libsane-snapscan.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_SNAPSCAN
	      If the library was compiled with debug support enabled, this en-
	      vironment	variable controls the debug level  for	this  backend.
	      E.g.,  a	value  of 255 requests all debug output	to be printed.
	      Smaller levels reduce verbosity.

BUGS
       Man page	doesn't	provide	much information yet.
