SANE (Scanner Access Now Easy) Scanner Drivers
The software consists of SANE scanner
drivers, "scanimage," and the "saned"
A SANE scanner driver is used via a
SANE front-end. This package contains
the command line front-end "scanimage".
There are graphical front-ends in other
packages like XSane (package xsane),
Skanlite for KDE4 (package skanlite), and
Kooka for KDE3 (package kdegraphics3-scan).
The "saned" daemon provides the service
"sane-port" to access scanners that are
connected to a server via network from
client hosts that run the "net" meta driver.
