          sane-epjitsu - SANE backend for Epson-based Fujitsu USB

          The sane-epjitsu library implements a SANE (Scanner Access
          Now Easy) backend which provides basic access the Fujitsu
          fi-60F/fi-65F and ScanSnap S300/S1300(i)/S1100(i) scanners.

          These scanners are fairly limited, only supporting a couple
          of modes and resolutions, and always scanning full width.
          The backend supports missing modes (binary, grayscale) and
          intermediate resolutions in software, but provides only min-
          imal scan area controls. See KNOWN ISSUES.

          This backend may support other scanners. If physical inspec-
          tion reveals an Epson chipset, please contact the author for
          instructions on collecting a USB trace under Windows to ver-

          A limited effort has been made to expose the standard
          options to the API.  This allows a frontend to set resolu-
          tion, color mode, and choose the ADF setting. The
          sane-epjitsu backend supports the following basic options
          for most scanners:

               Selects the source for the scan. Options may include
               "Flatbed", "ADF Front", "ADF Back", "ADF Duplex".

               Selects the mode for the scan. Options may include
               "Lineart", "Gray", "Color".

               Controls scan resolution. Setting --resolution also
               sets --y-resolution, though this behavior is overridden

          Other options will be available based on the capabilities of
          the scanner. Use 'scanimage --help' to get a list. Be aware
          that some options may appear only when another option has
          been set, and that advanced options may be hidden by the

          The configuration file /etc/sane.d/epjitsu.conf is used to
          tell the backend how to look for scanners, and provide
          options controlling the operation of the backend. This file
          is read each time the frontend asks the backend for a list
          of scanners, generally only when the frontend starts. If the
          configuration file is missing, the backend will not work.

          Scanners can be specified in the configuration file in two

          "usb 0x04c5 0x10c7" (or other vendor/product ids)
               Requests backend to search all usb buses in the system
               for a device which uses that vendor and product id. The
               device will then be queried to determine if it is a
               supported scanner.

          "usb /dev/usb/scanner0" (or other device file)
               Some systems use a kernel driver to access usb scan-
               ners. This method is untested.

          The only configuration option supported is "firmware
          /PATH/TO/FILE", allowing you to set the location of the
          firmware file you have extracted from the Windows driver.

          Note: This firmware is a copyrighted work of Fujitsu, so
          cannot be provided by the backend or the author. Please do
          not ask.

          Note: These scanners REQUIRE a firmware file to function.
          See the supplied configuration file for more detail.

          Note: This option may appear multiple times in the configu-
          ration file. It only applies to scanners discovered by 'usb'
          lines that follow this option.

          The backend uses a single environment variable,
          SANE_DEBUG_EPJITSU, which enables debugging output to
          stderr. Valid values are:

               5  Errors
               10 Function trace
               15 Function detail
               20 Option commands
               25 USB trace
               30 USB detail
               35 Useless noise

               Only limited scan area options are exposed.

               fi-60F and fi-65F hardware grayscale mode is not used,
               because the calibration code is not finished.

          S300 support funded by Microdea, Inc. and Archivista, GmbH.
          fi-60F support funded by TrueCheck, Inc.
          Improved calibration code provided by Richard Goedeken.
