sane-ibm(5)		 SANE Scanner Access Now Easy		   sane-ibm(5)

       sane-ibm - SANE backend for IBM and Ricoh SCSI flatbed scanners

       The  sane-ibm library implements a SANE (Scanner Access Now Easy) back‐
       end that provides access to the IBM 2456 and the Ricoh IS-410,  IS-420,
       and  IS-430  flatbed  scanners.	Support	 for  the IS-410 and IS-430 is
       untested. Please contact the maintainer or the sane-devel mailing  list
       if you own such a scanner.

       This  backend  is  alpha-quality.  It  may  have bugs and some scanners
       haven't been tested at all. Be careful and pull the plug if the scanner
       causes unusual noise.

       This backend expects device names of the form:


       Where  special is either the path-name for the special device that cor‐
       responds to a SCSI scanner. The program sane-find-scanner helps to find
       out  the	 correct  device.  Under  Linux,  such	a device name could be
       /dev/sg0 or /dev/sga, for example.  See sane-scsi(5) for details.

       The contents of the ibm.conf file is a list of device names that corre‐
       spond  to  SCSI	scanners.   Empty lines and lines starting with a hash
       mark (#) are ignored.  See sane-scsi(5) on details of what  constitutes
       a valid device name.

	      The   backend   configuration  file  (see	 also  description  of
	      SANE_CONFIG_DIR below).

	      The static library implementing this backend.

	      The shared library implementing this backend (present on systems
	      that support dynamic loading).

	      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 config‐
	      uration  file is searched in two default directories: first, the
	      current	working	  directory   (".")   and   then   in	 /sys‐
	      tem/resources/sane-backends/1.0.18/etc/sane.d.   If the value of
	      the environment variable ends with the directory separator char‐
	      acter,  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	 "/system/resources/sane-back‐
	      ends/1.0.18/etc/sane.d" being searched (in this order).

	      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.
