sane-umax1220u(5)	 SANE Scanner Access Now Easy	     sane-umax1220u(5)

       sane-umax1220u  -  SANE	backend	 for  the UMAX Astra 1220U and similar

       The sane-umax1220 library implements a SANE (Scanner Access  Now	 Easy)
       backend for the the UMAX Astra 1220U and similar scanners.

       For  more  information  on this backend, please visit http://umax1220u-

       This backend is also able to drive the  UMAX  Astra  1600U/2000U/2100U.
       The  2100U is confirmed to work. For the other scanners no reports have
       been received yet. Please contact us and tell us if your scanner	 works

       Usually,	 no  manual configuration is necessary. The configuration file
       for    this    backend	 resides    in	  /system/resources/sane-back‐

       Its  contents  is  a list of device names that correspond to UMAX Astra
       scanners.  Empty lines and lines starting with  a  hash	mark  (#)  are
       ignored. A sample configuration file is shown below:

	#usb vendor product
	usb 0x1606 0x0010
	# Device list for non-linux systems

       See sane-usb(5) for information on how to set the access permissions on
       the usb device files.

       The backend configuration file:

       The static library implementing this backend:

       The shared library implementing this backend:
	      /system/resources/sane-backends/1.0.18/lib/sane/libsane- (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:

	      SANE_DEBUG_UMAX1220U values

	      Number  Remark

	       1       print failures
	       2       print information
	       3       print high-level function calls
	       4       print high-level function checkpoints
	       9       print mid-level function calls
	       10      print mid-level function checkpoints
	       80      print protocol-level function entry
	       90      print protocol-level function exit

	      export SANE_DEBUG_UMAX1220U=10

       600 dpi scanning may fail for large image sizes.

       If  you	keep getting I/O errors, try cycling the power on your scanner
       to reset it.

       There is no way to cancel a scan, since the  driver  ignores  sane_can‐

       If  you	try  scanning  an  image  which is too small, you will get I/O
       errors. Be sure to adjust the scan area before doing a scan,  since  by
       default, the scan area is zero.

       This  backend  isn't actively maintained. Nevertheless, bug reports and
       comments should be sent to the sane-devel mailing list.	When reporting
       bugs,  please  run  the backend with SANE_DEBUG_UMAX1220U set to 10 and
       attach a copy of the log messages.
