uscanner - minimal USB support for scanners
uscanner* at uhub? port ? configuration ?
The uscanner driver provides minimal support for USB scanners. The driver
recognizes a number of USB scanners, but to actually scan
there needs to be software that knows about the particular
SANE package provides support for some scanners.
The uscanner driver works with the following scanners:
Epson [Toc] [Back]
Perfection 1200U Photo
HP [Toc] [Back]
Microtek [Toc] [Back]
Many other scanners are recognized, but there is no software
intro(4), uhub(4), usb(4)
The uscanner driver appeared in NetBSD 1.6. OpenBSD support
added in OpenBSD 2.9.
This driver should not really exist. The scanners it recognizes can be
accessed through the ugen(4) driver instead. A proper scanner driver
would provide a uniform interface to scanners instead of exposing the innards
of the scanner. The reason the driver exists is to
that is compatible with the Linux driver.
