The sane-umax1220 library implements a SANE (Scanner Access  Now  Easy)
       backend for the the UMAX Astra 1220U and similar scanners.

       For    more    information    on    this    backend,    please    visit

       This backend is also able to drive the  UMAX  Astra  1600U/2000U/2100U.
       The  2100U is confirmed to work. For the other scanners no reports have
       been received yet. Please contact us and tell us if your scanner  works

       Usually,  no  manual configuration is necessary. The configuration file
       for this backend resides in /etc/sane.d/umax1220u.conf.

       Its contents is a list of device names that correspond  to  UMAX  Astra
       scanners.   Empty  lines  and  lines  starting with a hash mark (#) are
       ignored. A sample configuration file is shown below:

        #usb vendor product
        usb 0x1606 0x0010
        # Device list for non-linux systems

       See sane-usb(5) for information on how to set the access permissions on
       the usb device files.

       The static library implementing this backend:

       The shared library implementing this backend:
              /usr/lib/arch_triplet/sane/ (present on sys-
              tems that support dynamic loading)

              If the library was compiled with  debug  support  enabled,  this
              environment  variable controls the debug level for this backend.
              E.g., a value of 128 requests all debug output  to  be  printed.
              Smaller levels reduce verbosity:

              SANE_DEBUG_UMAX1220U values

              Number  Remark

               1       print failures
               2       print information

       If  you  keep getting I/O errors, try cycling the power on your scanner
       to reset it.

       There is no way to cancel a scan, since the  driver  ignores  sane_can-

       If  you  try  scanning  an  image  which is too small, you will get I/O
       errors. Be sure to adjust the scan area before doing a scan,  since  by
       default, the scan area is zero.

       This  backend  isn't actively maintained. Nevertheless, bug reports and
       comments should be sent to the sane-devel mailing list.  When reporting
       bugs,  please  run  the backend with SANE_DEBUG_UMAX1220U set to 10 and
       attach a copy of the log messages.
