Dear Rolf,

Thanks for your help. I have a headless server (no gscan2pgf) and I would like to use the sane interface with mayan-edms.
This works for scanning for the flatbed but not for adf.

Same is true for the cli:

scanimage --source "Flatbed" --format=png > test.png
=> scan is saved as image

scanimage --source "Automatic Document Feeder" --format=tiff > test.tiff
=> scanimage: sane_read: Operation was canceled

scanimage --source "Automatic Document Feeder" --format=png > test.png -v
scanimage: scanning image of size 638x1050 pixels at 24 bits/pixel
scanimage: acquiring RGB frame
scanimage: min/max graylevel value = 255/0
scanimage: sane_read: Operation was canceled
