sane-ricoh - SANE backend for Ricoh flatbed scanners
The sane-ricoh library implements a SANE (Scanner Access Now Easy)
backend that provides access to the following Ricoh flatbed scanners:
This backend expects device names of the form:
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
The backend configuration file (see also description of
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 /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
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
