NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     uscanner - minimal USB support for scanners

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     uscanner* at uhub? port ? configuration ?

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     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
scanner.  The
     SANE package provides support for some scanners.

HARDWARE    [Toc]    [Back]

     The uscanner driver works with the following scanners:

   Epson    [Toc]    [Back]
           Perfection 610U
           Perfection 636U
           Perfection 1200U
           Perfection 1200U Photo

   HP    [Toc]    [Back]
           ScanJet 4100C
           ScanJet 5200C
           ScanJet 5300C
           ScanJet 6300C

   Microtek    [Toc]    [Back]
           ScanMaker X6USB

     Many other scanners are recognized, but there is no software
support for
     them yet.

SEE ALSO    [Toc]    [Back]

HISTORY    [Toc]    [Back]

     The uscanner driver appeared in NetBSD 1.6.  OpenBSD support
was first
     added in OpenBSD 2.9.

BUGS    [Toc]    [Back]

     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
have something
     that is compatible with the Linux driver.

OpenBSD      3.6                       September     10,     2000
