Hi all,

after recently adding FreeBSD support now NetBSD and OpenBSD are also

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 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
