I am a user, not a developer. I couldn't find a good place to get help
with SANE. If posting here is inappropriate, please forgive me, and
point me in the right direction.
I am using Mac OS X 10.5.6 on an Intel iMac. I have just purchased a
Canon PIXMA MX850, which I would like to be able to access from the
command line. It is currently connected to the Mac via USB.
I have installed the software that came from Canon, and I have
installed gettext, libusb, and SANE backends as packaged for Mac OS X
by Mattias Ellert <http://www.ellert.se/twain-sane/>. According to
that web page, the SANE backends were from 1.1.0-cvs 2009-02-20.

if anyone is interested.
Any help would be appreciated. I am not a developer, but I have Xcode
3.1 installed, and I am pretty good at following directions.
