NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       sane-m3096g, sane-sp15c - SANE backends for Fujitsu flatbed scanners

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The sane-m3096g and sane-sp15c libraries implement SANE (Scanner Access
       Now Easy) backends which provide access to  Fujitsu  flatbed  scanners.
       At  present,  the following scanners are known to work with these backends:

	      Vendor:  Model:		Rev:
	      -------- ---------------- -----
	      FUJITSU  M3096Gm		02
	      FCPA     ScanPartner 15C	1.01

       The M3096G driver  supports  lineart  (1-bit),  halftone  (1-bit),  and
       grayscale (8-bit) scanning.

       The  ScanPartner 15C driver supports lineart (1-bit), halftone (1-bit),
       grayscale (4-bit and 8-bit), and color (3 x 8-bit) scanning.

       Other scanners in these families may work.  The ScanPartner  15C  seems
       to   be	a  repackaging	of  the  ScanPartner  600C.   Perusal  of  the
       M3096GX/M3093GX/M3093DG manual suggests the M3096G driver offers access
       to  a  subset  of the new scanners.  People are encouraged to try these
       driver with the other scanners and to  contact  the  author  with  test

CONFIGURATION    [Toc]    [Back]

       A  modest  effort  has  been made to expose the standard options to the
       API.  This allows frontends such as xscanimage to set scanning  region,
       resolution,  bit-depth  (and  color), and enable the automatic document

LIMITATIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       Testing limited to a Linux 2.2.5 kernel
       Can't quite get the scan page/minute performance in  ADF  modes.   This
       may be due to limited system buffer size.

BUGS    [Toc]    [Back]

       I'm  sure there are plenty, and not too well hidden, but I haven't seen
       them yet.
       Both scanners claim to have separate control of resolution in X	and  Y
       directions.   I	confess  I haven't tested this yet.  I have found that
       xsane doesn't even display this capability.
       Threshold settings on the SP15C don't seem to  affect  the  results  of
       lineart mode scans.
       It  might  be  possible	to merge these two drivers without much effort
       since the SP15C driver was derived from the M3096G driver.   They  were
       split  so  as  to  keep the second driver development from breaking the
       working first driver.  Watch this space for changes.
