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, ...) via
action scripts. The function knob values are passed to the
action-scripts as well. Scan actions are also signaled via dbus. This
can be useful for foreign applications. Scans can also be triggered via
dbus from foreign applications.
On platforms which support signaling of dynamic device insertion /
removal (libudev, dbus, hal) scanbd supports this as well.
scanbd can use all sane-backends or some special backends from the (old)
Supported platforms: Linux, FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD
