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
       device 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
       details.


FILES

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

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

       /usr/lib64/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 /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_RICOH
              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_RICOH=4
