       sane-kodakaio - SANE backend for Kodak aio printer / scanners


       The  sane-kodakaio  library  implements  a  SANE  (Scanner  Access Now Easy) backend which
       provides access to Kodak aio printer / scanners, like the ESP and Hero series.

       This  document  describes  backend  version  2.4,  which  is  the  first   candidate   for
       incorporation in sane-backends.


       This  version  should  support  models of the Kodak ESP and Hero series, and possibly some
       Advent AiO scanners. The ESP 5250 and Hero 9.1 were used to develop the backend, but other
       models may work. Please see the desc file.

       If you have a model not on that list, or reported as 'untested': the best way to determine
       level of support is to test the scanner directly.


       The configuration file "kodakaio.conf" is used  to  tell  the  backend  how  to  look  for
       scanners, and provide options controlling the operation of the backend.  This file is read
       each time the frontend asks the backend for a list of scanners, generally  only  when  the
       frontend starts.


       The  backend  uses  a  single  environment  variable,  SANE_DEBUG_KODAKAIO,  which enables
       debugging output to stderr.


       Most hardware options are either not supported or not exposed for  control  by  the  user,
       including: multifeed detection, image compression etc.
