Hi all,

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
