NAME

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

/usr/local/etc/sane.d/tamarack.conf
  The backend configuration file (see also description of SANE_CONFIG_DIR below).
/usr/local/lib/sane/libsane-tamarack.a
  The static library implementing this backend.
/usr/local/lib/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 /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_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
