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

       sane-pixma - SANE backend for Canon PIXMA MP series

       The  sane-pixma	library	 implements  a	SANE (Scanner Access Now Easy)
       backend that provides access  to	 Canon	PIXMA  multi-function  devices
       (All-in-one  printers).	Currently, the following models work with this

	      PIXMA MP150, PIXMA MP170, PIXMA MP450, PIXMA MP500
	      PIXMA MP800, PIXMA MP830,
	      MultiPASS MP700 (no grayscale), PIXMA MP750 (no grayscale)

       The following model are marked as experimental  because	they  are  not
       well tested and/or the scanner sometimes hangs and must be switched off
       and on.	Therefore they are disabled by default. (See  PIXMA_EXPERIMENT

	      MultiPASS MP730, PIXMA MP760, PIXMA MP780

       The backend supports
       * resolutions at 75,150,300,600,1200 and 2400 DPI,
       * color and grayscale mode,
       * a custom gamma table with 4096 entries and
       * automatic document feeder.

       The  device  name  is in the form pixma:xxxxyyyy_zzzzz where x, y and z
       are vendor ID, product ID and  serial  number  respectively.   Example:
       pixma:04A91709_123456 is a MP150.

       This backend is in alpha stage and will stay in this stage until we get
       the programming manual for the hardware. Although we have tested it  as
       good  as	 we could, it will not work in every situations. You will find
       an up-to-date status at the project homepage. (See below)

       Besides "well-known" options (e.g. resolution, mode etc.) pixma backend
       also  provides  the following experimental options for button handling,
       i.e. the options might change in the future.

	      This option can be used in combination with scanadf(1) and scan‐
	      image(1)	in  batch mode, for example when you want to scan many
	      photos or multiple-page documents. If it is enabled (i.e. is set
	      to  true	or yes), the backend waits before every scan until the
	      user presses the "SCAN" button (for  MP150)  or  the  color-scan
	      button  (for other models). Just put the first page in the scan‐
	      ner, press the button, then the next page, press the button  and
	      so on. When you finished, press the gray-scan button. (For MP150
	      you have to stop the frontend by pressing Ctrl-C for example.)

       button-update button-1 button-2
	      These options are interesting for developers.  To	 check	button
	      status:  (1)  set button-1 and button-2 to zero, (2) set button-
	      update (Its type is SANE_TYPE_BUTTON.),  (3)  get	 button-1  and
	      button-2.	  If  the result is not zero, the corresponding button
	      was pressed.

	      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.
	      Higher value increases the verbosity.

	      0	 print nothing
	      1	 print error and warning messages (recommended)
	      2	 print informational messages
	      3	 print debug-level messages
	      10 dump USB traffics

	      Setting  to a non-zero value will enable the support for experi‐
	      mental models.  You should also set SANE_DEBUG_PIXMA to 10.

       I would like to thank all testers and helpers. Without them I would not
       be  able	 to  write  subdrivers	for  models I don't have. See also the
       project homepage.
