Happy New Year to everybody,
I've already posted an announce that alternative eSCL backend is available:
But because I've got no official reaction, I decided to gently remind
Thank to Till Kamppeter, for his patience, time and very professional
feedback, issues with his HP DeskJet 2540 were solved. It was a very
problematic device, because it's XML parser appeared to be broken, which
nobody would ever suspect. We also found a bug in ippusbxd and Till now
works on it, so scan via IPP-over-USB also works. And later I've
received a report that my backend works with HP ENVY 4500.
Also, from my own experience, it works with Kyocera ECOSYS M2040dn,
which sane-escl doesn't. This is important issue, because unlike Cannon
and HP, Kyocera doesn't provide even a low-quality closed-source network
drivers for linux.
My backend is very mature and it implements many features, missed in
sane-escl, such as ADF support (simplex, duplex, multipage),
sane_cancel() and so on.
Unfortunately, I'm not an organization, but rather a physical person, so
I don't have an access to great variety of hardware to test with. This
is why I ask the community to help me with testing my backend on a
hardware not listed in README.md
I'm especially interested in testing on eSCL-capable photo cameras, if
there are any, because as far as I know, none of existing opensource
eSCL implementation works with them.
