       sane-fujitsu - SANE backend for Fujitsu flatbed and ADF scanners


       The  sane-fujitsu  library  implements a SANE (Scanner Access Now Easy)
       backend which provides access to most Fujitsu flatbed and ADF scanners.

       This  document  describes  the  rewritten  backend  versions 1.0.21 and

       The backend supports lineart, halftone, grayscale, and  color  scanning
       for  most  USB  and  SCSI scanners, depending on hardware capabilities.
       Most simple  scanning  related  features  are  exposed.   This  version
       features  at  least  basic  support  for  many  more models.  See KNOWN


       The following scanners are thought to  have  at  least  basic  scanning
       capability,  either because they have been tested with a prior version,
       or because documentation indicates they are compatible  with  a  tested

       The  following scanners are known NOT to work with this backend, either
       because they have a non-fujitsu chipset, or  an  unsupported  interface
       type. Some of these scanners may be supported by another backend.

       This  backend  may  support  scanners  not listed here. The best way to
       determine level of support is to test the  scanner  directly.   Fujitsu
       equipment  has  historically  been  good  enough  to  not be damaged by
       incorrect commands if the scanner is incompatible.  Please contact  the
       author with test results, positive or negative.


       A  modest  effort  has  been made to expose the standard options to the
       API.  This allows a frontend to set scanning region,  resolution,  bit-
       depth,  color  mode,  and  enable  the  automatic  document feeder. The
       fujitsu backend supports the following basic options for most scanners:

       source s
              Selects  the source for the scan. Options may include "Flatbed",
              "ADF Front", "ADF Back", "ADF Duplex".

       mode m
              Selects the mode for the scan. Options  may  include  "Lineart",
              "Halftone", "Gray", and "Color".

       resolution, y-resolution
              Controls  scan  resolution.  Setting --resolution also sets --y-
              resolution,  though  this  behavior  is   overridden   by   some

       tl-x, tl-y, br-x, br-y
              Sets scan area upper left and lower right coordinates. These are
              renamed t, l, x, y by some frontends.

       pagewidth, pageheight
              Sets paper size. Used by scanner to determine centering of  scan
              coordinates when using ADF and to detect double feed errors.

       Other  options  will  be  available  based  on  the capabilities of the
       scanner.  Use ’scanimage --help’ to get a  list.  Be  aware  that  some
       options  may  appear  only  when  another option has been set, and that
       advanced options may be hidden by the frontend.


       The configuration file "fujitsu.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. If the
       configuration file is missing, the backend will use a set  of  compiled
       defaults, which are identical to the default configuration file shipped
       with SANE.

       Scanners can be specified in the configuration file in 4 ways:

       "scsi FUJITSU"
              Requests backend to search all scsi busses in the system  for  a
              device which reports itself to be a scanner made by ’FUJITSU’.

       "scsi /dev/sg0" (or other scsi device file)
              Requests  backend  to open the named scsi device. Only useful if
              you have multiple compatible scanners connected to your  system,
              and  need  to  specify one. Probably should not be used with the
              other "scsi" line above.

       "usb 0x04c5 0x1042" (or other vendor/product ids)
              Requests backend to search all usb busses in the  system  for  a
              device  which  uses  that vendor and product id. The device will
              then be queried to determine if it is a Fujitsu scanner.

       "usb /dev/usb/scanner0" (or other device file)
              Some systems use a kernel driver to access  usb  scanners.  This
              method is untested.

       The  only configuration option supported is "buffer-size=xxx", allowing
       you to set the number of bytes in the data buffer  to  something  other
       than the compiled-in default, 65536 (64K). Some users report that their
       scanner will "hang" mid-page, or fail to  transmit  the  image  if  the
       buffer is not large enough.

       Note:  This option may appear multiple times in the configuration file.
       It only applies to scanners discovered by ’scsi/usb’ lines that  follow
       this option.

       Note:  The backend does not place an upper bound on this value, as some
       users required it to be quite large. Values above the default  are  not
       recommended, and may crash your OS or lockup your scsi card driver. You
       have been warned.


       The backend uses a  single  environment  variable,  SANE_DEBUG_FUJITSU,
       which enables debugging output to stderr. Valid values are:

              5  Errors
              10 Function trace
              15 Function detail
              20 Option commands
              25 SCSI/USB trace
              30 SCSI/USB detail
              35 Useless noise


       Backend  versions  prior to this were numbered with a two part version,
       or with no version number at all. At the time this version was written,
       all older versions were retroactively renumbered, 1.0.2 - 1.0.20.

       The  current  backend  may  have lost support for some feature you were
       using.  The last of the "old" backends, 1.0.20, is still  available  as
       source from:

       If  you find that you need to use the older version, please contact the
       author, to try and get those features restored to a later version.


              All IPC, imprinter options are disabled.
              Most scanner specific ’quirks’ are not accounted for, making  it
              possible  to  set some options in ways that the scanner does not
              Some flatbed options are affected by adf settings.
              Any model that does not support  VPD  during  inquiry  will  not
