NAME
sane-sp15c - SANE backend for Fujitsu ScanPartner 15C flatbed scanner DESCRIPTION
The sane-sp15c library implements a SANE (Scanner Access Now Easy) backend which provides access to the Fujitsu flatbed scanners. At present, the following scanner is known to work with these backend: Vendor: Model: Rev: -------- ---------------- ----- FCPA ScanPartner 15C 1.01 The ScanPartner 15C driver supports lineart (1-bit), halftone (1-bit), grayscale (4-bit and 8-bit), and color (3 x 8-bit) scanning. Other scanners in these families may work. The ScanPartner 15C seems to be a repackaging of the ScanPartner 600C. People are encouraged to try these driver with the other scanners and to contact the author with test results. CONFIGURATION
A modest effort has been made to expose the standard options to the API. This allows frontends such as xscanimage to set scanning region, resolution, bit-depth (and color), and enable the automatic document feeder. SEE ALSO

Randolph Bentson <bentson@holmsjoen.com>, with credit to the unnamed author of the coolscan driver LIMITATIONS
Testing limited to a Linux 2.2.5 kernel Can't quite get the scan page/minute performance in ADF modes. This may be due to limited system buffer size. BUGS
I'm sure there are plenty, and not too well hidden, but I haven't seen them yet. Both scanners claim to have separate control of resolution in X and Y directions. I confess I haven't tested this yet. I have found that xsane doesn't even display this capability. Threshold settings on the SP15C don't seem to affect the results of lineart mode scans. It might be possible to merge these two drivers without much effort since the SP15C driver was derived from the M3096G driver. They were split so as to keep the second driver development from breaking the working first driver. Watch this space for changes. 14 Jul 2008 sane-sp15c(5)

NAME
sane-sm3840 - SANE backend for Microtek scanners with SCAN08 USB chip DESCRIPTION
The sane-sm3840 library implements a SANE (Scanner Access Now Easy) backend that provides access to some Microtek scanners with the SCAN08 USB chip. There exist backends for Microtek scanners with SCSI command set. Refer to sane-microtek(5) and sane-microtek2(5) for details. There also exists a Microtek 3600 series driver, see sane-sm3600(5) for details. At present, the following scanners are known positively to work with this backend: Vendor Product ID: Remark: -------- -------------- ----------- Microtek ScanMaker 3840 All modes OK Microtek ScanMaker 4800 All modes OK If you own a Microtek scanner with the SCAN08 chip other than the ones listed above, it may or may not work with SANE. Feel free to con- tact the backend author (earle@ziplabel.com) to report results with scanners not on the list. FRONTEND OPTIONS
The following options are supported by the sm3840-driver: --mode color|gray|lineart|halftone Color or grayscale mode. --resolution 150|300|600|1200 Pixels per inch for scans. --depth 8|16 Note that the least significant bits of 16bpp mode may be noise. --brightness 1..4096 Higher numbers increase brightness of returned image. --contrast 0.1..9.9 Larger numbers decrease contrast of returned image. --lamp-timeout 1..15 Time in minutes until the lamp is turned off after a scan. CONFIGURATION
This backend does not support a configuration file right now. FILES
/usr/lib64/sane/libsane-sm3840.a The static library implementing this backend. /usr/lib64/sane/libsane-sm3840.so The shared library implementing this backend (present on systems that support dynamic loading). ENVIRONMENT
SANE_DEBUG_SM3840 If the library was compiled with debug support enabled, this environment variable controls the debug level for this backend. E.g., a value of 128 requests all debug output to be printed. Smaller levels reduce verbosity. To see error messages on stderr set SANE_DEBUG_SM3840 to 1. SEE ALSO
