sane-mustek_usb2 - SANE backend for SQ113 based USB flatbed scanners
The sane-mustek_usb2 library implements a SANE (Scanner Access Now
Easy) backend that provides access to USB flatbed scanners based on the
Service & Quality SQ113 chipset. At the moment, only the Mustek BearPaw
2448 TA Pro is supported. It’s planned to add support for other
scanners that are based on the SQ113 and maybe SQ11 chip. For more
details, see the mustek_usb2 backend homepage: http://www.meier-
This is BETA software. Especially if you test new or untested scanners,
keep your hand at the scanner’s plug and unplug it, if the head bumps
at the end of the scan area.
If you own a scanner other than the ones listed on the mustek_usb2
homepage that works with this backend, please let me know this by
sending the scanner’s exact model name and the USB vendor and device
ids (e.g. from sane-find-scanner or syslog) to me. Even if the
scanner’s name is only slightly different from the models already
listed as supported, please let me know.
Please use libusb-0.1.8 or later. Without libusb or with older libusb
versions all kinds of trouble can be expected. The scanner should be
found by sane-find-scanner without further actions. For setting
permissions and general USB information looks at sane-usb(5).
The backend configuration file (see also description of
The static library implementing this backend.
The shared library implementing this backend (present on systems
that support dynamic loading).
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).
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_MUSTEK_USB2=4
sane(7), sane-usb(5), sane-plustek(5), sane-ma1509(5), sane-
mustek_usb(5), sane-mustek(5), sane-mustek_pp(5)

Please contact me if you find a bug or missing feature: <henning@meier-
geinitz.de>. Please send a debug log if your scanner isn’t detected
correctly (see SANE_DEBUG_MUSTEK_USB2 above).
