[sane-devel] [ANNOUNCE] UMAX Astra 610P support in umax_pp backend
Mon, 3 May 2004 07:31:30 -0400
support the UMAX Astra 610P flatbed parallel port scanner has
been added to the umax_pp backend in SANE's CVS. It is a beta, and I
expect that bugs will be found when trying it on hardware different
than those I tested on.
In case of trouble, try to change parallel port settings in
BIOS. Valid modes to test are Bidirectionnal, EPP and ECP.
Known bugs are:
- poor quality shading calibration
- 300x600 dpi works as 300x300
- y start of scan area isn't correct
Hopefully, these are going to be fixed soon.
When reporting a bug, you may help me by sending debug logs by
doing in a shell:
then run xsane, scanimage or xscanimage in the same shell with:
Only SPP mode has been implemented, so high res scans are slow.
EPP support may be added in the future.
