sane-ma1509 - SANE backend for Mustek BearPaw 1200F USB scanner
The sane-ma1509 library implements a SANE (Scanner Access Now Easy) backend that provides access to the Mustek BearPaw 1200F USB flatbed scanner. This scanner is based on the MA-1509 chipset. Other scanners that use this chip (if they exist) may also work. This backend is ALPHA software. Be careful and remove the power plug immediately if your hear unusual noises. More details can be found on the ma1509 backend homepage http://www.meier-geinitz.de/sane/ma1509-backend/. Other Mustek USB scanners are supported by the gt68xx, mustek_usb and the plustek backends. See sane-mustek_usb(5), sane-gt68xx(5) and sane-plustek(5) for details. This backend can only work with scanners that are already detected by the operating system. See sane-usb(5) for details. If you own a scanner other than the Mustek BearPaw 1200F that works with this backend, please let me know this by sending the scanner's exact model name and the USB vendor and device ids (e.g. from /proc/bus/usb/devices or syslog) to me.
This backend expects device names of the form: special Where special is a path-name for the special device that corresponds to a USB scanner. With Linux, such a device name could be /dev/usb/scanner0 or libusb:001:002, for example.
The contents of the ma1509.conf file is a list of options and device names that correspond to Mustek BearPaw 1200F scanners. Empty lines and lines starting with a hash mark (#) are ignored. Instead of using the device name, the scanner can be autodetected by usb vendor_id product_id statements which are already included into ma1509.conf. This is only supported with Linux 2.4.8 and higher and all systems that support libsub. "vendor_id" and "product_id" are hexadecimal numbers that identify the scanner. If this doesn't work, a device name must be placed in ma1509.conf as described above. To set the time the lamp needs for warm-up, use option warmup-time in ma1509.conf. The time is given in seconds after the option. The default is 30 seconds.
/etc/sane.d/ma1509.conf The backend configuration file (see also description of SANE_CONFIG_DIR below). /usr/lib/arch_triplet/sane/libsane-ma1509.a The static library implementing this backend. /usr/lib/arch_triplet/sane/libsane-ma1509.so The shared library implementing this backend (present on systems that support dynamic loading).
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 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). SANE_DEBUG_MA1509 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.
