NAME

       sane-magicolor - SANE backend for KONICA MINOLTA magicolor scanners


DESCRIPTION

       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
       known.


SUPPORTED DEVICES

       The following scanner should work with this backend:

       Device Details
       -----------------------------
       Vendor: KONICA MINOLTA
       Model: magicolor 1690MF


CONFIGURATION

       This section describes the backend's configuration  file  entries.  The
       file is located at:

              /etc/sane.d/magicolor.conf

       For a proper setup, at least one of the following entries are needed:

              net autodiscovery
              net [IP ADDRESS] [DEVICE-ID]
              usb
              usb [VENDOR-ID] [DEVICE-ID]


FILES

       /etc/sane.d/magicolor.conf
              The backend configuration file

       /usr/lib64/sane/libsane-magicolor.a
              The static library implementing this backend.

       /usr/lib64/sane/libsane-magicolor.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 /etc/sane.d.  If the
              value of the environment variable ends with the directory  sepa‐
              rator character, then the default directories are searched after
              the explicitly  specified  directories.   For  example,  setting
              SANE_CONFIG_DIR  to  "/tmp/config:"  would result in directories
              "/tmp/config", ".", and "/etc/sane.d" being  searched  (in  this
              order).

       SANE_DEBUG_MAGICOLOR
              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‐
              age).

              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.
