I finally found some time to dig into the backend to see what it does
and how to use it (too many other things to do and been ill for a
while). I now understand how things work.
The button-1 and button-2 options are set when sane_control_option() is
called for option button_update with action SANE_ACTION_SET_VALUE.
SANE_ACTION_SET_VALUE button_update is used to poll the scanner and set
button-1 and button-2. But scanbd does not support
My patch from a week ago was not correct as it ignores how the buttons
are supposed to be used. I am looking into the best way to solve this.
I need to check, but I seem to recall that there is an indication in the
USB protocol that indicates what option (save, pdf, attach to email etc)
was chosen. If this is true, I may try to add an option for that as
Kind regards, Louis
