option. This option apply to the last port option.
Please make sure to edit dll.conf before you use the backend, since this backend isnt enabled by default.
/usr/local/etc/sane.d/p5.conf The backend configuration file (see also description of SANE_CONFIG_DIR below). /usr/local/lib/sane/libsane-p5.a The static library implementing this backend. /usr/local/lib/sane/libsane-p5.so The shared library implementing this backend (present on systems that support dynamic loading).
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 /usr/local/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 "/usr/local/etc/sane.d" being searched (in this order). SANE_DEBUG_P5 If the library was compiled with debug support enabled, this environment variable controls the debug level for this backend. E.g., a value of 255 requests all debug output to be printed. Smaller levels reduce verbosity.

If something doesnt work mail email@example.com or use the bug tracker at https://alioth.debian.org/tracker/?atid=410366&group_id=30186 . Please give as much information as you can.
SANE version run "scanimage -V" to determine this the backend version and your scanner hardware run "SANE_DEBUG_P5=255 scanimage -L 2>log" as root. If you dont get any output from the p5 backend, make sure a line "p5" is included into your /usr/local/etc/sane.d/dll.conf. If your scanner isnt detected, make sure youve defined the right port address, or the correct device in your p5.conf. the name of your scanner/vendor also a worthy information. Please also include the optical resolution and lamp type of your scanner, both can be found in the manual of your scanner. any further comments if you have comments about the documentation (what could be done better), or you think I should know something, please include it.
