sane-lexmark(5) SANE Scanner Access Now Easy sane-lexmark(5)NAMEsane-lexmark - SANE backend for Lexmark X1100 Series scanners
The sane-lexmark library implements a SANE (Scanner Access Now Easy)
backend that provides access to the scanner part of Lexmark X1100 AIOs.
This backend should be considered beta-quality software!
The scanners that should work with this backend are:
Vendor Model status
Lexmark X1110 untested
Lexmark X1140 untested
Lexmark X1150 untested
Lexmark X1170 untested
Lexmark X1180 basic
Lexmark X1185 basic
The options the backend supports can either be selected through command
line options to programs like scanimage or through GUI elements in
xscanimage or xsane.
If you have any strange behavior, please report to the backend main‐
tainer or to the SANE mailing list.
Valid command line options and their syntax can be listed by using
scanimage --help -d lexmark:usb:<usb port>
Scan Mode Options
--mode selects the basic mode of operation of the scanner valid choices
are Color, Gray and Lineart The default mode is Color. The Lin‐
eart mode is black and white only (1 bit). Grayscale will pro‐
duce 256 levels of gray (8 bits). Color mode allows for over 16
million different colors produced from 24 bits of color informa‐
selects the resolution for a scan. The horizontal and vertical
resolutions are set by the value of this option. The scanner is
capable of the following resolutions for the specified option
Value Hor. Resolution Vert. Resolution
----- --------------- -------------------
75 75dpi 75dpi
150 150dpi 150dpi
300 300dpi 300dpi
600 600dpi 600dpi
1200 600dpi 1200dpi
requests a preview scan. The resolution used for that scan is 75
dpi and the scan area and the scan mode are as specified through
their options, or the default if not specified. The default
value for preview mode is "no".
selects the size of the area to be scanned. Valid sizes are Wal‐
let, 3x5, 4x6, 5x7, 8x10, Letter, the default size is 3x5.
selects the minimum-brightness to get a white point. The
threshold is only used with Lineart mode scans. It is specified
as a percentage in the range 0..100% (in steps of 1). The
default value of the threshold option is 50.
The configuration file /system/resources/sane-back‐
ends/1.0.18/etc/sane.d/lexmark.conf contains only the usb device id (eg
usb 0x043d 0x007c).
The static library implementing this backend.
The shared library implementing this backend (present on systems
that support dynamic loading).
If the library was compiled with debug support enabled, this
environment variable controls the debug level for this backend.
E.g., a value of 128 requests all debug output to be printed.
Smaller levels reduce verbosity.
The windows TWAIN driver has many more options than this SANE backend.
However they are only software adjustments. This backend only imple‐
ments what the scanner can support.
Jerky movement on 600dpi gray 8x10 scan.
Color calibration not implemented.
Dark compensation not implemented.
