NAMEsane-sm3600 - SANE backend for Microtek scanners with M011 USB chip
DESCRIPTIONThe sane-sm3600 library implements a SANE (Scanner Access Now Easy) backend that provides access to some Microtek scanners with the Toshiba M011 custom USB chip. This backend should be considered alpha.
At present, the following scanners are known positively to work with this backend:
If you own a Microtek scanner with the M011 chip other than the ones listed above, it may or may not work with SANE!
FRONTEND OPTIONSThis backend dynamically enables the options for the frontend, that are supported by the scanner in dependence of the scanning-mode and other options. Not supported options are disabled.
The following options are supported by the Microtek2-driver:
Color, grayscale, halftone and lineart scans.
contrast, brightness, control, gamma correction.
DEVICE NAMESThis backend does not support device names in a standardized form.
CONFIGURATIONThis backend does not support a configuration file right now.
PERMISSIONS AND INTERFACES
The backend uses libusb and it's pseudo files in /proc/bus/usb/*. Since libusb versions 0.1.3b and 0.1.4 have incompatible binary data structures, You must be shure not to have obsolete header files. When You mix wrong versions, the scanner detection code will raise a "segment violation".
These files are normally owned by root and You are responsible to get access to these files, for example chown-ing them to Yourself. If You have no right permissions, the backend will find the device, but You'll get an I/O error.
The better way is to use automatical hotplugging. See http://sm3600.sf.net/hotplug.html for instructions and useful links.
