[sane-devel] multiple scanners
Fri, 17 Jan 2003 00:37:06 -0500
I just purchased an Epson Perfection 1660 Photo scanner to work with
Linux (RedHat 7.3 and Slackware 8.1). I built, installed, and
configured SANE according to directions. It works great. Thanks!
But I do have a couple of questions.
1) I understand that Linux supports 16 usb scanners. Am I correct in
assuming that I can put multiple entries in my
/usr/local/etc/sane.d/epson.conf to operate more than one epson scanner
at a time? For example, if I had three epson 1660s, could I do the
following in my epson.conf:
2) As the scanner module requires vendor and product parameters, it
doesn't appear that SANE supports more than one scanner vendor/product
at the same time. Does SANE support multiple scanner types at the same
time? If so, how does one configure this?
Thanks for your help,
