[sane-devel] Solaris 8 (Setup HOWTO)
Wed, 3 Oct 2001 14:29:53 -0500 (CDT)
Okay, I noticed a lot of people on this list had problems compiling /
using SANE / XSANE.
I have created a SPARC pkgadd package (hopefuly a x86 version) soon
http://www.icephyre.net/pkgs (SANE 1.0.5 + XSANE 0.79)
Described below is my setup, even though I use a SPARC Solaris is Solaris
so the general configuration's apply.
Scanner Used: Artec AM12S
SANE Install Prefix: /opt/GNU
Once you have SANE installed you need to setup SGEN scsi driver for the
do this by editing the file:
Below are the values I entered for my Artec AM12S scanner:
$ cat /kernel/drv/sgen.conf
name="sgen" class="scsi" target=5 lun=0;
Then I ran:
# devfsadm -v -i sgen
This will create sgen device nodes for the scanner.
The device location for the scanner will be at:
? = Whatever ID you gave it in the sgen.conf file
Line 80 of README.solaris for backends-1.0.5 explains this.
You shouldn't "have" to reboot, I would just to reset and clear out and
re-initalize the SCSI buss.
When you do all of that and reboot the box edit the following files:
/opt/GNU/etc/sane.d/artec.conf (or whatever printer you are)
Make the device location to be:
Comment out ALL the scanners other then the one you want to use.
Change the permissions of /dev/scsi/scanner/c?t?d? to:
chmod 666 /dev/scsi/scanner/c?t?d?
REMEMBER ? is the value of the channel/disk/ID of your device!
Hope this helps people!
