       sane-fujitsu - SANE backend for Fujitsu flatbed scanners

       The  sane-fujitsu  library  implements a SANE (Scanner Access Now Easy) backend which pro-
       vides access to Fujitsu flatbed scanners.  At present, the following scanners are known to
       work with this backend:

	      Vendor:  Model:		Rev:
	      -------- ---------------- -----
	      FUJITSU  M3096Gm		02
	      FUJITSU  M3093GX
	      FUJITSU  M3093GD
	      FUJITSU  M4097
	      FUJITSU  fi-4340C
	      FUJITSU  M3091DCd 	BF21
	      FUJITSU  M3092DCd

       The  driver  supports  lineart,	halftone,  grayscale,  and color (3091 and 3092) scanning
       depending on hardware capabiliites.

       The "Fujitsu" driver is a first attempt at integrating support for all Fujitsu scanners	-
       previously available as different single drivers - in one driver. At present, the M3091DCd
       is working (lineart, halftone, 8-bit grayscale and 24-bit color, simplex and duplex),  and
       the  driver should also support the M3096 as the M3096g driver code has been incorporated.
       This driver supersedes the old "m3091"/"fujitsu" drivers and the old "m3096g" driver.

       Other scanners in these families may work.  The ScanPartner 15C seems to be a  repackaging
       of the ScanPartner 600C, but I don't know if it works.  Look at the sp15c backend for this
       scanner.  Perusal of the M3096GX/M3093GX/M3093DG manual suggests the M3096G driver  offers
       access  to  a  subset of the new scanners.  People are encouraged to try these driver with
       the other scanners and to contact the author with test results.

       The M3091 driver supports duplex scanning. To the front-end, a duplex scan looks very much
       like  scanning  two  separate  pages  from  the	document  feeder, i.e. the SANE front-end
       receives two images instead of one.  Front-ends which are not capable of dealing with that
       -  e.g. the command-line tool scanimage - cannot be used for duplex scanning.  If you want
       to do duplex scans  from  the  command  line,  get  Tom	Martone's  scanadf  program  from

       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.
       The "Fujitsu" driver supports the following options:
       mode m
	      m may be one of "Color", "Lineart", "Halftone", or "Gray", dependent on the scanner
	      model. It is advisable to specify this option first when using command line  tools,
	      as the validity of some of the other options depends on the mode setting.

       x, y
	      Scan width and height

       pagewidth, pageheight
	      Page  size;  when  using	the  ADF, the driver will assume that a page of the given
	      width is centered

       resolution, y-resolution
	      Controls scan resolution. Permissible values dependent on model and scan mode; set-
	      ting --resolution also sets --y-resolution but not vice versa. This makes it possi-
	      ble to set the 3091's maximum resolution of 300x600dpi.

       brightness b
	      Only supported for M3096

       treshold t
	      Only supported for M3096

       duplex d
	      d may be "front", "back", or "both" and denotes which sides of the page are  to  be
	      scanned (duplex scanner only for example 3091, 3093Gd).

       lampcolor c
	      c  may  be  "red",  "green",  "blue", or "default" - the lamp color to be used when
	      doing graysacale or b/w scans on the M3091.

       blueoffset, greenoffset
	      Color justification options for the M3091; anything other than +1/-1 will  probably
	      distort the image. Should be left alone unless your scanner is buggy.

	      boolean  option  for the M3091. Only affects duplex scans. If set, a swap file will
	      be used for storing the rear side of a document as it  is  scanned;  otherwise  the
	      whole page will be kept in memory.

       You  may  specify  the  line "forceModel=xxx" in the configuration file to make the driver
       treat your scanner as an "xxx" scanner (currently supported: 3096, 3091). Use this if  you
       have another scanner that is not automatically detected as being compatible.

       The  only other configuration option supported is "scsi-buf-size=xxx", allowing you to set
       the SCSI buffer size to something other than the compiled-in default. Especially with  the
       M3091 scanner, some users had the problem that the scanner would "hang" mid-page, and this
       can often be alleviated by using "scsi-buf-size=32768".

       I'm  sure there are plenty, and not too well hidden, but I haven't seen them yet.  I don't
       know if the ScanPartner 15C still works, because I'm not able to test it.  3091/3092 don't
       support halftone
