This is a port of the Linux scanner software "XSane" to AmiCygnix. In this
package the sane backends version 1.0.23 are included.
Compared to the package "XSane-0.998" many new scanners are supported and
several backends were bugfixed (See list of backends).

At the moment only scanners with USB connector and network interface are
supported. But this should be the majority of the available scanners.

Please notice:

Because of software problems (OS4 USB stack) and hardware problems (articia
bug), the data transfer can freeze sometimes. Also it was reported, that the
whole system can freeze, if you plug in a scanners USB connector. Please keep
this in mind, if you consider to buy a new scanner!

  - epkowa

    Important: Many of the scanners supported by the epkowa backend do need
               an external library provided by Epson. The sources of these
               libraries are not available, so they cannot be compiled for OS4.
               Please have a look at the file "Cygnix:CygnixPPC/gtk2.24/share/

  More informations about these backends you can find on the Sane homepage
  http://www.sane-project.org or in the directory "Cygnix:Software/XSane-0.999/

  * gamma4scanimage

    Creates a gamma table for "scanimage".
    See man file "Cygnix:CygnixPPC/gtk2.24/share/man/man1/gamma4scanimage.1".

    available on the local host.
    Works only in debug mode (call "Cygnix:CygnixPPC/gtk2.24/sbin/saned -d").
