A second Sbus narrow SCSI card was inserted into the system. A narrow
controller (as oppsed to wide, like the built in SCSI) was used to insure
proper termination of the bus since the scanner is a
narrow device. A cable that has mini-D50 (on the Sun end) and a DB25 (on the scanner end) was used to place the scanner on this bus, set to target 5.
Obtain the software listed in the software section.
Extract and install the scg driver which requires a system reboot.
Extract and compile GNU make with the Sun C compiler and Sun make
Extract and compile GNU C with the Sun C compiler and GNU make
Extract and compile GTK+ with the GNU C compiler and GNU make
Apply the SANE patch
Extract and apply the UMAX patch
Compile SANE with the GNU C compiler and GNU make
Extract and compile NetPBM with the GNU C compiler and GNU make
Find the scanner device by running find-scanner -v this program is
in the tools directory of SANE.
Create a link for /dev/scanner to the device you found in whith find-scanner, for example
ln -s /dev/scg1f /dev/scanner
Now running scanimage -L you should see your scanner.
Running a GUI interface like xscanimage or umaX-scanimage
is much easier for interactive use.
