Linux scanner drivers (SANE backends) for KONICA MINOLTA devices
These devices have a binary protocol, where each command starts with the hexadecimal byte '03' and each network command with '04'. Known devices using this protocol are:
- KONICA MINOLTA magicolor 1690MF
Support for this scanner is already included in the Sane scanner driver (using the magicolor backend).
These devices have a text-based protocol (SCL-derived), where each command starts with the escape sequence (hexadecimal '1b'), but only after a header of 12 bytes (binary, starting with hexadecimal '02'). Known devices using this protocol are:
- KONICA MINOLTA bizhub C203
Support for these scanners is not included in the Sane scanner library, and I have no plans to implement them.
