sane-mustek_usb2 - SANE backend for SQ113 based USB flatbed scanners
library implements a SANE (Scanner Access Now Easy)
backend that provides access to USB flatbed scanners based on the Service
& Quality SQ113 chipset. At the moment, only the Mustek BearPaw 2448 TA
Pro is supported. It's planned to add support for other scanners that are
based on the SQ113 and maybe SQ11 chip. For more details, see the mustek_usb2
This is BETA software. Especially if you test new or untested scanners, keep
your hand at the scanner's plug and unplug it, if the head bumps at the end of
the scan area.
If you own a scanner other than the ones listed on the mustek_usb2 homepage 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
or syslog) to me. Even if the scanner's name is only
slightly different from the models already listed as supported, please let me
Please use libusb-0.1.8 or later. Without libusb or with older libusb versions
all kinds of trouble can be expected. The scanner should be found by
sane-find-scanner without further actions. For setting permissions and general
USB information looks at sane-usb
- The static library implementing this backend.
- The shared library implementing this backend (present on
systems that support dynamic loading).
- 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.
Example: export SANE_DEBUG_MUSTEK_USB2=4
The driver has been written Roy Zhou, Jack Xu, and Vinci Cen from Mustek.

isn't detected correctly (see SANE_DEBUG_MUSTEK_USB2 above).
