USCANNER(4)             NetBSD Kernel Interfaces Manual            USCANNER(4)

NAME
     uscanner -- minimal USB support for scanners

SYNOPSIS
     uscanner* at uhub?

DESCRIPTION
     The uscanner driver provides minimal support for USB scanners.  The
     driver recognizes a number of USB scanners, but to actually scan anything
     there needs to be software that knows about the particular scanner.  The
     SANE package provides support for some scanners.

HARDWARE
     The uscanner driver works with the following scanners:

   Epson
           GT-7000
           Perfection 610U
           Perfection 636U
           Perfection 1200U
           Perfection 1200U Photo
           Perfection 1260
           Perfection 1660
           Perfection 2400

   HP
           ScanJet 4100C
           ScanJet 5200C
           ScanJet 6300C

     Many other scanners are recognized, but there is no software support for
     them yet.

HISTORY
     The uscanner driver appeared in NetBSD 1.6.

BUGS
     This driver should not really exist.  The scanners it recognizes can be
     accessed through the ugen(4) driver instead.  A proper scanner driver
     would provide a uniform interface to scanners instead of exposing the
     innards of the scanner.  The reason the driver exists is to have some-
     thing that is compatible with the Linux driver.
