1. NAME

sane-tamarack - SANE backend for Tamarack flatbed scanners

2. DESCRIPTION

The

sane-tamarack library implements a SANE (Scanner Access Now Easy) backend that provides access to the following Tamarack flatbed scanners:

Artiscan 6000C
Artiscan 8000C
Artiscan 12000C

3. DEVICE NAMES

This backend expects device names of the form:

special

Where special is the path-name for the special device that corresponds to a SCSI scanner. The special device name must be a generic SCSI device or a symlink to such a device. The program sane-find-scanner helps to find out the correct device. Under Linux, such a device name could be /dev/sga or /dev/sge , for example. See sane-scsi(5) for details.

4. FILES

  • /etc/sane.d/tamarack.conf
        The backend configuration file (see also description of

SANE_CONFIG_DIR below).

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

5. 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_TAMARACK

    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_TAMARACK=4
