sane-magicolor - SANE backend for KONICA MINOLTA magicolor scanners
The sane-magicolor backend supports KONICA MINOLTA magicolor scanners
connected via USB or LAN. Currently, only the magicolor 1690MF device
is supported, no other devices with the same scanning protocol are
The following scanner should work with this backend:
Vendor: KONICA MINOLTA
Model: magicolor 1690MF
This section describes the backend's configuration file entries. The
file is located at:
For a proper setup, at least one of the following entries are needed:
net [IP ADDRESS] [DEVICE-ID]
usb [VENDOR-ID] [DEVICE-ID]
The backend configuration file
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
/usr/local/etc/sane.d. If the value of the environment variable
ends with the directory separator character, then the default
directories are searched after the explicitly specified directo‐
ries. For example, setting SANE_CONFIG_DIR to "/tmp/config:"
would result in directories "/tmp/config", ".", and
"/usr/local/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.
Example: export SANE_DEBUG_MAGICOLOR=127
To obtain debug messages from the backend, set this environment
variable before calling your favorite frontend (e.g. xscanim‐
Example: SANE_DEBUG_MAGICOLOR=65 xscanimage
KNOWN BUGS AND RESTRICTIONS
Large color scans may sometimes timeout due to unknown reasons (the
scanner simply stops returning data)
Cancelling large scans may lock up the scanner.
