NAME

sane-niash - SANE backend for scanners based on the NIASH chipset.
 

DESCRIPTION

The sane-niash implements a SANE (Scanner Access Now Easy) backend that provides access to NIASH chipset based scanners. This backend will try to support the following models:
 
MANUFACTURER:    MODEL:          USB ID:
---------------  ----------------  ---------
Agfa             Snapscan Touch    06BD-0100 (1)(a)
Trust            Office Scan 19200 047B-1000 (1)(a)
Hewlett-Packard  Scanjet 3300c     03F0-0205 (1)(a)(b)
Hewlett-Packard  Scanjet 3400c     03F0-0405 (2)(b)
Hewlett-Packard  Scanjet 4300c     03F0-0305 (2)(a)
Silitek          ScanJet 4300c     047B-1002 (2)(b)
ASIC: (1) - NIASH00012/00013/00014 / (2) - NIASH00019
 
ANALOG FRONT-END: (a) - ESIC ES8100QA / (b) - WM8143-12
 
 

CONFIGURATION

The niash.conf file is meant for future configuration options. Empty lines and lines starting with a hash mark (#) are ignored. Currently no configuration options exist.
 

FILES

/usr/lib/arch_triplet/sane/libsane-niash.a
The static library implementing this backend.
 
/usr/lib/arch_triplet/sane/libsane-niash.so
The shared library implementing this backend (present on systems that support dynamic loading).
 

CAVEATS

If you use a
 
Hewlett-Packard Scanjet 3400c or
 
Hewlett-Packard Scanjet 4300c
 
together with Linux kernel 2.6, kernel version 2.6.8 or newer is necessary.
 

ENVIRONMENT

SANE_DEBUG_NIASH
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_NIASH=255
