NAME

       sane-ricoh - SANE backend for Ricoh flatbed scanners

DESCRIPTION

       The  sane-ricoh  library  implements  a  SANE (Scanner Access Now Easy)
       backend that provides access to the following Ricoh flatbed scanners:

              IS50
              IS60

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

       /etc/sane.d/ricoh.conf
              The   backend   configuration  file  (see  also  description  of
              SANE_CONFIG_DIR below).

       /usr/lib/sane/libsane-ricoh.a
              The static library implementing this backend.

       /usr/lib/sane/libsane-ricoh.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
              /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).

       SANE_DEBUG_RICOH
              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_RICOH=4
