NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       sane-dc25 - SANE backend for Kodak DC20/DC25 Digital Cameras

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The sane-dc25 library implements a SANE (Scanner Access Now Easy) backend
 that provides access to Kodak DC20 and DC25 cameras.   At  present,
       only  the  DC25	has been tested, but since the code is based on a DC20
       interface program, it is likely to work for that model also.

DEVICE NAMES    [Toc]    [Back]

       The current version of the backend only allows one camera  to  be  connected.
	The device name is always "0".

CONFIGURATION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  contents of the dc25.conf specify the serial port and baud rate to
       use.  The baud rate specifies the maximum rate to use while downloading
       pictures.   (The  camera  is  always  initialized using 9600 baud, then
       switches to the higher rate).  On my 90MHz Pentium, I usually  have  no
       problems downloading at 115200 baud as long as the system is not excessively
 busy and the "interrupt-unmask flag" is set in  the  IDE	driver
       (hdparm -u1).  Supported baud rates are: 9600, 19200, 38400, 57600, and

       The dumpinquiry line causes some information about  the	camera	to  be
       printed	to  stderr during startup.  Note:  This is not compatible with
       saned, so make sure you don't have any dumpinquiry  lines  if  you  are
       using saned (i.e. scanning on a remote machine using a network).

       Empty  lines  and  lines  starting with a hash mark (#) are ignored.  A
       sample configuration file is shown below:

FILES    [Toc]    [Back]

	      The  backend  configuration  file  (see  also   description   of
	      SANE_CONFIG_DIR below).

	      The static library implementing this backend.

	      The shared library implementing this backend (present on systems
	      that support dynamic loading).

ENVIRONMENT    [Toc]    [Back]

	      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

       SANE_DEBUG_DC25    [Toc]    [Back]
	      If the library was compiled with debugging support enabled, this
	      environment variable controls the debug level for this  backend.
	      A  value of 128 requests maximally copious debug output; smaller
	      levels reduce verbosity.

BUGS    [Toc]    [Back]

       Known bugs/limitations are:

       I haven't figured out how to  trigger  an  option  reload  following  a
       "scan."	 This  causes problems when a new picture is snapped for example,
 the slider that is used to select the picture from the camera  may
       not be updated immediately.

       More  general  comments,  suggestions, and inquiries about frontends or
       SANE  should  go   to   the   SANE   Developers	 mailing   list   (see
       http://www.mostang.com/sane/mail.html  for  details).  You must be subscribed
 to the list, otherwise your mail won't  be  sent  to  the  subscribers.
