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


   The  sane-ibm  library  implements  a  SANE  (Scanner  Access Now Easy)
   backend 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.


   This backend expects device names of the form:


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


   The contents of the ibm.conf file  is  a  list  of  device  names  that
   correspond  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.


          The   backend   configuration  file  (see  also  description  of
          SANE_CONFIG_DIR below).

          The static library implementing this backend.

          The shared library implementing this backend (present on systems
          that support dynamic loading).


          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
          configuration  file  is  searched  in  two  default directories:
          first,  the  current  working  directory  (".")  and   then   in
          /etc/sane.d.  If the value of the environment variable ends with
          the directory separator character, then the default  directories
          are  searched  after  the explicitly specified directories.  For
          example, setting SANE_CONFIG_DIR to "/tmp/config:" would  result
          in   directories  "tmp/config",  ".",  and  "/etc/sane.d"  being
          searched (in this order).

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