We talked about it in February 2002... but I never mentioned it as something
important. I got used to apply the sequence
1) Power on scanner. Close door. Execute
$ scanimage -d avision >test.pnm
2) Open door. Insert film holder. Execute
$ scanimage -d avision --resolution 2800 --frame 1 >test.pnm
3) Repeat scanimage as needed
I just verified that I mentioned the possibility of creating an
option --calibrate, which would calibrate without trying to scan. My doubt is
wether this fits nicelly with all frontends.
