Updated: 14 Jul 2008
sane-sm3600 - SANE backend for Microtek scanners with M011 USB chip
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.
There are also backends for Microtek scanners with SCSI command set.
At present, the following
scanners are known positively to work with this backend:
Vendor Product id: Remark:
-------- -------------- -----------
Microtek ScanMaker 3600 all modes ok
Microtek ScanMaker 3700 reported to work
Microtek ScanMaker 3750 reported to work
If you own a Microtek scanner with the M011 chip other than the ones
listed above, it may or may not work with SANE!
This backend dynamically enables the options for the frontend,
that are supported by the scanner dependent on the scanning-mode
and other options. Unsupported options are disabled.
The following options are supported by the Microtek2-driver:
Color, grayscale, halftone and lineart scans.
contrast, brightness, control, gamma correction.
This backend does not support device names in a standardized form.
This backend does not support a configuration file right now.
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. E.g.,
a value of 128 requests all debug output to be printed. Smaller
levels reduce verbosity. To see error messages on stderr set
E.g. just say:
