       sane-ma1509 - SANE backend for Mustek BearPaw 1200F USB scanner

       The  sane-ma1509	 library  implements  a SANE (Scanner Access Now Easy)
       backend that provides access to the Mustek BearPaw  1200F  USB  flatbed
       scanner.	 This  scanner is based on the MA-1509 chipset. Other scanners
       that use this chip (if they exist) may also work.

       This backend is ALPHA software.	Be careful and remove the  power  plug
       immediately if your hear unusual noises.

       More   details	can   be   found   on	the  ma1509  backend  homepage

       Other Mustek USB scanners are supported by the gt68xx,  mustek_usb  and
       the  plustek backends. See sane-mustek_usb(5), sane-gt68xx(5) and sane-
       plustek(5) for details.

       This backend can only work with scanners that are already  detected  by
       the operating system. See sane-usb(5) for details.

       If  you	own  a	scanner other than the Mustek BearPaw 1200F that works
       with this backend, please let me know this  by  sending	the  scanner's
       exact  model  name  and	the  USB  vendor  and  device  ids  (e.g. from
       /proc/bus/usb/devices or syslog) to me.

       This backend expects device names of the form:


       Where special is a path-name for the special device that corresponds to
       a  USB scanner.	With Linux, such a device name could be /dev/usb/scan‐
       ner0 or libusb:001:002, for example.

       The contents of the ma1509.conf file is a list of  options  and	device
       names  that  correspond	to Mustek BearPaw 1200F scanners.  Empty lines
       and lines starting with a hash mark (#) are ignored.

       Instead of using the device name, the scanner can  be  autodetected  by
       usb  vendor_id  product_id  statements  which are already included into
       ma1509.conf.  This is only supported with Linux 2.4.8  and  higher  and
       all systems that support libsub. "vendor_id" and "product_id" are hexa‐
       decimal numbers that identify the scanner.  If  this  doesn't  work,  a
       device name must be placed in ma1509.conf as described above.

       To  set	the time the lamp needs for warm-up, use option warmup-time in
       ma1509.conf.  The time is  given	 in  seconds  after  the  option.  The
       default is 30 seconds.

	      SANE_CONFIG_DIR below).

	      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.
