[sane-devel] Nikon Scantouch 110 (AX-110)

I joined this list find out how to get my ancient, and no longer
supported, Nikon Scantouch 110 (AX-110) working with sane. But, I think
I've got it figured out. Apparently the umax backend works for the AX-210,
and will also work for the AX-110 if you rebuild it after adding entries
to some files.
to the umax.conf file:
scsi HDM LS4H1S
scsi Nikon AX-210
scsi Nikon AX-110 <---
scsi KYE ColorPage-HR5
to the umax.desc file:
:model "AX-110" <---
:interface "SCSI" <---
:comment "OK" <---
and to the umax-scanner.c file:
"HDM ", "LS4H1S ", /* Linoscan 1400 */
"Nikon ", "AX-110 ", <---
"Nikon ", "AX-210 ",
"KYE ", "ColorPage-HR5 ",
"EPSON ", "Perfection600 ",
(Naturally, don't put in the "<---" arrows as they're just to show what
lines I added). After rebuilding, I copied all the new umax libraries to
"/usr/lib/sane" and the umax.conf file to the "/etc/sane.d" directory.
I'm no expert on sane, and if anyone can see any dangers or flaws in what
I did, please let me know. In the meantime, I seem to be getting
reasonable quality 300 dpi scans via xsane.
FYI, I'm running sane version 1.0.5 and have RedHat 7.2 installed on my
computer. The scanner came with a dinky little Adaptec AHA-1505 ISA scsi
board that I could never get to work right on Linux, so I'm now using an
Adaptec AHA-2940AU pci card, which also handles my internal zip drive and
whatever else I decide to hang onto the scsi bus.
