updated the usage-information for scanbd.
Now installations and special / complicated setups should be more easy now.
Are there any volunteers interested in this, especially baking packages
form the sources or doing more testing with different scanners? Any help
is very welcome!
As usual the code is at:
svn co https://scanbd.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/scanbd scanbd
scanbd is a scanner button daemon. It polls the scanner buttons looking
for buttons pressed or function knob changes or other scanner events as
paper inserts / removals and at the same time allows
also scan-applications to access the scanners. If buttons are pressed,
etc., various actions can be submitted (scan, copy, email, ...).
The function knob values are passed to the action-scripts as well. Scan
actions are also signaled via dbus. scanbd can use sane-backends or some
special backends from the (old) scanbuttond project.
Plattforms: Linux, FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD
