USCANNER(4)		 BSD Kernel Interfaces Manual		   USCANNER(4)

     uscanner -- USB Scanners

     To	compile	this driver into the kernel, place the following line in your
     kernel configuration file:

	   device uscanner

     Alternatively, to load the	driver as a module at boot time, place the
     following line in loader.conf(5):


     The uscanner driver provides support for scanners that attach to the USB
     port.  For	each scanner attached it will provide an entry like
     /dev/uscanner0 in /dev.  User-space programs, e.g.	SANE, can in turn use
     the device	entry throgh a suitable	backend	driver (see
     ports/graphics/sane-backends) to control the scanner itself.

     In	case of	multifunction USB devices (e.g.	scanner/printer/card reader),
     this driver only attaches to the USB interface that controls the scanner;
     for the other USB interface you need separate drivers, e.g.  ulpt,	umass,
     and so on.

     usb and one of uhci or ohci must be configured in the kernel as well.

     Because there is no standard device class for USB scanners, this driver
     will only recognise devices whose USB IDs are explicitly listed in	the
     table in the driver itself.

     The following devices are supported to date:
