README.Fedora ------------- This file is meant as README for Fedora specific changes for sane-backends package. SANE daemon is moved to subpackage ---------------------------------- sane-backends daemon - saned - its manual page and systemd unit files are moved into subpackage named sane-backends-daemon. It was done because daemon provides access to scanning devices on remote server, which nowadays isn't common usage of sane-backends, so it wasn't necessary to ship it with main package. Several scanners need proprietary driver for working ---------------------------------------------------- Several scanners (e.g. Samsung, Brother, Epson) sometimes need special backends, whose isn't shipped with sane-backends or cannot be shipped in Fedora because of licensing problem. If your scanner isn't working with basic sane-backends: 1) if your scanner is Epson, try to install iscan-firmware package or Image Scan from Epson official site 2) if your scanner is Samsung, try to find driver on 3) if your scanner is Brother, see Ad2) Samsung proprietary driver is needed when user needs JPEG compression - this feature support was added to sane-backends upstream by commit 926bfade544de4a4fd5, which contained patches from Samsung. But this commit broke scanning for Samsung scanners, so this patch was reverted with consequences of losing JPEG compression feature for Samsung scanners.
