sane-dc25


DESCRIPTION
       The sane-dc25 library implements a SANE (Scanner Access Now Easy) back-
       end 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
       The current version of the backend only allows one camera  to  be  con-
       nected.  The device name is always "0".

CONFIGURATION
       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 exces-
       sively busy and the "interrupt-unmask flag" is set in  the  IDE  driver
       (hdparm -u1).  Supported baud rates are: 9600, 19200, 38400, 57600, and
       115200.

       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:

              port=/dev/ttyS0
              # this is a comment
              baud=115200
              dumpinquiry

FILES
       /etc/sane.d/dc25.conf
              The  backend  configuration  file  (see  also   description   of
              SANE_CONFIG_DIR below).

       /usr/lib/arch_triplet/sane/libsane-dc25.a
              The static library implementing this backend.

       /usr/lib/arch_triplet/sane/libsane-dc25.so
              The shared library implementing this backend (present on systems
              that support dynamic loading).


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 config-
              uration file is searched in two default directories: first,  the
              levels reduce verbosity.

BUGS
       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 exam-
       ple, 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.sane-project.org/mailing-lists.html  for details).  You must

       subscribers.
