NAME

       sane-magicolor - SANE backend for KONICA MINOLTA magicolor scanners

DESCRIPTION

       The sane-magicolor backend supports KONICA MINOLTA magicolor scanners connected via USB or
       LAN. Currently, only the magicolor 1690MF device is supported, no other devices  with  the
       same scanning protocol are known.

SUPPORTED DEVICES

       The following scanner should work with this backend:

       Device Details
       -----------------------------
       Vendor: KONICA MINOLTA
       Model: magicolor 1690MF

CONFIGURATION

       This section describes the backend's configuration file entries. The file is located at:

              /etc/sane.d/magicolor.conf

       For a proper setup, at least one of the following entries are needed:

              net autodiscovery
              net [IP ADDRESS] [DEVICE-ID]
              usb
              usb [VENDOR-ID] [DEVICE-ID]

FILES

       /etc/sane.d/magicolor.conf
              The backend configuration file

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

       /usr/lib/arch_triplet/sane/libsane-magicolor.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_MAGICOLOR
              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_MAGICOLOR=127

              To obtain debug messages from the backend, set  this  environment  variable  before
              calling your favorite frontend (e.g. xscanimage).

              Example: SANE_DEBUG_MAGICOLOR=65 xscanimage

KNOWN BUGS AND RESTRICTIONS

       Large  color  scans may sometimes timeout due to unknown reasons (the scanner simply stops
       returning data)

       Cancelling large scans may lock up the scanner.
