Release Notes

How to configure, build, and install SANE.

SANE stands for Scanner Access Now Easy.
This package contains the SANE libraries (this means backends and
network scanning parts) and the command line frontend scanimage.
You always find the most recent version of SANE on:

At the same location there are also links to snapshots of the CVS server and
sometimes beta releases of sane-backends. These are unstable development
versions, so be careful when using them. Please report any problems to us. See
contact section for details.

There are several graphical frontends available for SANE, see the list at

Quick install:

make install

man sane


In order to build SANE, the following tools and libraries are required:

	- GNU make: version 3.70 or newer

	- ANSI C compiler: GNU C (gcc) is recommended for best performance,
	  but any ANSI-compliant compiler should do

Some more libraries are not strictly necessary to compile SANE, but some
functionality may be lost if they are not available:
        - libusb (>=0.1.6): Strongly recommended if you use a USB scanner.
          Some backends won't work without libusb at all.

        - libjpeg (>=6B): For the dc210, dc240, and gphoto2 backends.

        - libieee1284 (>=0.1.5): For some parallel port backends.

        - libgphoto2 (>=2.0): For the gphoto2 backend.

SANE should build on most Unix-like systems. Support for OS/2, MacOS X, BeOS,
and Microsoft Windows is also available. For more details look at the
operating system specific README.* files. For a detailed support matrix, see:

This table may be out of date. Please tell us about any corrections or
additions. Please mention your operating system and platform and all the other
details mentioned in the table. See also the contact section.

Please check that there aren't any older versions of SANE installed on your
system. Especially if SANE libraries are installed in a different prefix
directory (e.g. /usr/lib/) this may cause problems with external
frontends. Please remove these libraries (libsane.*, sane/libsane-*) by using
your packet manager or manually before installing this version of SANE.


Simply invoke configure in the top-level directory.  Besides the usual GNU
configure options, there are the following SANE specific options:

	Don't use shared libraries.  Useful for debugging or when there
	is a problem building shared libraries.  This implicitly turns
	on --disable-dynamic --enable-static as well.

	Disable dynamic loading of backends (in the dll backend).
	configure normally turns on dynamic loading when it
	can find the appropriate header files and libraries
	(<dlfcn.h> and -dl).

        Use static libraries (turned off by default).

        Preload backends into DLL backend.  This is useful for debugging,
	when dynamic loading is unavailable, or to reduce runtime linking
	overheads.  If dynamic loading or shared libraries are unavailable
	or disabled, this option is turned on automatically.
        Specify the buffer size of the buffer for SCSI commands. The default
	value is 131072 bytes (128 kb). This may be changed at runtime by
	setting	the environment variable SANE_SG_BUFFERSIZE to the desired
	value. The option is Linux-only at this time.
	--enable-scsibuffersize and SANE_SG_BUFFERSIZE have no effect for
	the Mustek, Umax and Sharp backends. For these backends, the buffer
	size is set automatically and/or can be specified in the backend's
	configuration file. Please refer to the backend's man pages for

	Disable installation of translated backend options. If you get
	errors in the po/ directory during build, use this option.
	See po/README for details.

	Means, that some backends will use a lockfile for allowing multiple
	access to one scanner. This is useful, i.e. one frontend is scanning
	the button status and another one will scan. The path to the lock
	files is define by --localstatedir at the configure step and is 
	$localstatedir/lock/sane. The default group is uucp and can be
	changed by using --with-group=newgroup. If you do not want any
	backend to use a lockfile, simply use --disable-locking.

In addition to these configuration options, there are some more SANE-specific
options and many standard-options.  To get a description of available options,
invoke configure with option --help.

If you plan on debugging one of the SANE programs, we recommend to run
configure like this:

   CFLAGS="-g -O -Wall" ./configure --disable-shared

For operating system specific information, look at the README.* files.


To build SANE, simply type "make" in the top-level directory.

To clean up the executables and libraries in the source directory, type "make
clean". To restore everything to the status after unpacking the package, type
"make distclean".

Installation and Configuration

Once the build has finished, install SANE with "make install".  By
default, this will place the SANE libraries in /usr/local/lib/, the
configuration files in /usr/local/etc/sane.d/, and the manual pages in
/usr/local/man/.  The location of these directories can be overridden
with configure options; see "configure --help" for details.

Before running any SANE program, read the PROBLEMS file in this directory.

For information on configuring and trouble-shooting the various SANE
components, please refer to the manual page sane(7).

The tools/ directory contains some small programs that may be helpful. They
are described in tools/README.


Type "make uninstall" to remove SANE from your system. This will also remove
older versions of SANE if they have been installed at the same prefix.
Warning: Your configuration files will be deleted also so make sure you have a
backup. By default the configuration files are located in the directory


For questions and general discussion about SANE contact the sane-devel mailing
list. You must be subscribed to the list to send mail. See for details.

If you want to submit a bug report or feature request please use our bug
tracking system.  See for details. You
may also contact the author of a specific backend directly. See the AUTHORS
file for a list of addresses.

	  sanei/sanei_usb.c: Changes to support SANE on ZETA. Not all
	  patches have been applied yet, but it's a start. The backends
	  are not installed as shared libs but as add-ons, which are shared libs
	  but in a specific folder in [/system|~]/config/add-ons/ named SANE/.
	  The install target has been changed to account for this,
	  Some files don't exist in BeOS/ZETA (ipc.h, ...).
	  Backend function names get a prefix, I suppose to avoid namespace clashes.
	  Though we do have a libdl to implement dl_open, the native way is prefered.
	  Added a --with-docdir= configure arg.
	  BeOS has a broken get[name|addr]info() from bind. This is fixed in ZETA R1.
	  libtool needs -no-undefined. Various VPATH fixes.
	  Check for <be/drivers/USB_scanner.h>, but not used yet.
	  No S_IFSOCK (sockets are fds to /dev/net/api). Stub pio code, untested.
	  Patch from Fran�is Revol <>.

	  doc/descriptions/avision.desc: updated the Avision backend with the
	  latest off-site maintained version: fixed segmentation faults for
	  some modes, many many new devices, two different duplex modes
	  are supported, vast speedup of multi page batch scans, buttons as well
	  a 7-segment LED readout and some quirks for old scanners not filling
	  all fields

	  and changed 16 bit/color to 12 based on a user report for the
	  Visioneer OneTouch 7300. Updated .desc. Moved check for stable
	  lamp to its own function. Mustek ScanExpress A3 USB: Use CIS
	  calibration. Use lamp warmup. Fixed CCD on GT6801 scanning (color
	  scanning was broken due to a change in motormode_2.
