the 5600f is a gl847 based scanner and should be added in the genesys
backend. Denis has sent me a few logs that I need to process to give you some
hints on how to add it.
I'm currently working on the OpticBook 3600 patch sent recently. I think
I'll have enough time this week to send you precise explanations on the steps
to take to add this scanner.
