[sane-devel] Sane and scanbd

I was able to get this working by moving the scanimage command to the SCAN.SH script, and then doing my OCR processing and network transfer in the background.

If there are any contributors to the project here, firstly I would like to say thanks! 

I hope someone can help with my problem…

When I setup scanbd to run a script with the following command, the scanner isn’t found:

sh /home/pi/scripts/scanconvert.sh &

When I run SCAN.SH myself – no problem.  

If I put the commands from scanconvert.sh into scan.sh – no problem

As soon as I pass the job of scanning to the background task using &, the scanimage command can’t see the scanner.  

Thank you,
