sane-p5(5)			   SANE Scanner Access Now Easy 		       sane-p5(5)

NAME
       sane-p5 - SANE backend for the Primax PagePartner

DESCRIPTION
       The  sane-p5  library  implements  a  SANE (Scanner Access Now Easy) backend that provides
       access to the Primax PagePartner parallel port sheet fed scanner.

       This backend handles 100, 150, 200, 300 and 600 dpi scan resolutions, in  color	and  gray
       modes.  The  600 dpi is actually 300x600 with lines enlarged to match the vertical resolu-
       tion.

       EPP/ECP MODES ONLY The current version of the backend uses only EPP or ECP mode to  commu-
       nicate  with the scanner. It is recommended that you set your parallel port to EPP in BIOS
       with the current version of this backend. ECPEPP will only work if you use a  2.4  or  2.6
       kernel with ppdev character device support.

DEVICE NAMES
       This backend expects device names of the form:

	      port value

       Where value is :

	      auto   autodetect all parallel ports and probe them for scanner

	      /dev/parport0
		     uses linux ppdev device, depending on the number of available parallel port,
		     you have to use /dev/parport1, /dev/parport2, ...

       You can rename any device using the

	      option name my_name

       option. This option apply to the last port option.

CONFIGURATION
       Please make sure to edit dll.conf before you use the backend,  since  this  backend  isn't
       enabled by default.

FILES
       /etc/sane.d/p5.conf
	      The backend configuration file (see also description of SANE_CONFIG_DIR below).

       /usr/lib64/sane/libsane-p5.a
	      The static library implementing this backend.

       /usr/lib64/sane/libsane-p5.so
	      The  shared  library  implementing  this	backend  (present on systems that support
	      dynamic loading).

ENVIRONMENT
       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_P5
	      If the library was compiled with debug support enabled, this  environment  variable
	      controls the debug level for this backend.  E.g., a value of 255 requests all debug
	      output to be printed.  Smaller levels reduce verbosity.

	      level   debug output
	      ------- ------------------------------
	       0       critical errors
	       1       errors
	       2       warnings & minor errors
	       4       information messages
	       8       start/stop of functions
	       16      tracing messages
	       32      I/O functions
	       64      I/O functions with traces
	       128     scanned/calibration data

BUG REPORTS
       If  something  doesn't work mail sane-devel@lists.alioth.debian.org or use the bug tracker
       at https://alioth.debian.org/tracker/?atid=410366&group_id=30186 .  Please  give  as  much
       information as you can.

       SANE version
	      run "scanimage -V" to determine this

       the backend version and your scanner hardware
	      run  "SANE_DEBUG_P5=255  scanimage  -L  2>log" as root. If you don't get any output
	      from  the  p5  backend,  make  sure   a	line   "p5"   is   included   into   your
	      /etc/sane.d/dll.conf.  If your scanner isn't detected, make sure you've defined the
	      right port address, or the correct device in your p5.conf.

       the name of your scanner/vendor
	      also a worthy information. Please also include the optical resolution and lamp type
	      of your scanner, both can be found in the manual of your scanner.

       any further comments
	      if  you  have  comments about the documentation (what could be done better), or you
	      think I should know something, please include it.
