sane-ricoh - SANE backend for Ricoh flatbed scanners
The sane-ricoh library implements a SANE (Scanner Access Now Easy) backend that provides access to the following Ricoh flatbed scanners: IS50 IS60
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(1) 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.
/etc/sane.d/ricoh.conf The backend configuration file (see also description of SANE_CONFIG_DIR below). /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/sane/libsane-ricoh.a The static library implementing this backend. /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/sane/libsane-ricoh.so The shared library implementing this backend (present on systems that support dynamic loading).
SANE_CONFIG_DIR This environment variable specifies the list of directories that may contain the configuration file. On *NIX systems, 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
