sane-tamarack — SANE backend for Tamarack flatbed scanners

Description

The sane-tamarack library implements a SANE (Scanner Access Now Easy) backend that provides access to the following Tamarack flatbed scanners:

Artiscan 6000C
Artiscan 8000C
Artiscan 12000C

Device Names

This backend expects device names of the form:

special

Where special is the path-name for the special device that corresponds to a SCSI scanner. The special device name must be a generic SCSI device or a symlink to such a device.  The program sane-find-scanner helps to find out the correct device. Under Linux, such a device name could be /dev/sga or /dev/sge, for example.  See sane-scsi(5) for details.

Files

/etc/sane.d/tamarack.conf

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

/usr/lib64/sane/libsane-tamarack.a

The static library implementing this backend.

/usr/lib64/sane/libsane-tamarack.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 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 order).

SANE_DEBUG_TAMARACK

If the library was compiled with debug support enabled, this environment variable controls the debug level for this backend.  Higher debug levels increase the verbosity of the output.

Example:  export SANE_DEBUG_TAMARACK=4
