Sorry for not being clear (enough). I had hoped it was "obvious" that
the BE stood for whatever backend you're interested in. We have about
94 of them in sane-backends :-)
In your case, BE=genesys, that'd become sane-genesys, genesys.conf and
# Perhaps I should have added a $ and write sane-$BE?
Hope this helps,
