NAME

       sane-ricoh - SANE backend for Ricoh flatbed scanners


DESCRIPTION

       The  sane-ricoh  library  implements  a  SANE (Scanner Access Now Easy)
       backend that provides access to the following Ricoh flatbed scanners:

              IS50
              IS60


DEVICE NAMES

       This backend expects device names of the form:

              special

       Where special is the path-name for the special device that  corresponds
       to  a  SCSI scanner. The special device name must be a generic SCSI de-
       vice or a symlink to such  a  device.   The  program  sane-find-scanner
       helps  to  find out the correct device. Under Linux, such a device name
       could be /dev/sga or /dev/sge, for example.  See sane-scsi(5)  for  de-
       tails.


FILES

       /usr/local/etc/sane.d/ricoh.conf
              The   backend   configuration  file  (see  also  description  of
              SANE_CONFIG_DIR below).

       /usr/local/lib/sane/libsane-ricoh.a
              The static library implementing this backend.

       /usr/local/lib/sane/libsane-ricoh.so
              The shared library implementing this backend (present on systems
              that support dynamic loading).


ENVIRONMENT

       SANE_CONFIG_DIR
              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/lo-
              cal/etc/sane.d.   If  the value of the environment variable ends
              with the directory separator character, then the default  direc-
              tories  are searched after the explicitly specified directories.
              For example, setting SANE_CONFIG_DIR to "/tmp/config:" would re-
              sult   in   directories   "tmp/config",   ".",   and   "/usr/lo-
              cal/etc/sane.d" being searched (in this order).

       SANE_DEBUG_RICOH
              If the library was compiled with debug support enabled, this en-
              vironment  variable  controls  the debug level for this backend.
              Higher debug levels increase the verbosity of the output.

              Example: export SANE_DEBUG_RICOH=4
