How to configure, build, and install SANE-FRONTENDS.
Type `./configure --help' for a list of options.
- GNU make version 3.70 or later and an ANSI C-Compiler (e.g. gcc) is needed
for compilation. It may be necessary to specify the path to GNU make and the
compiler by setting the environment variables MAKE and CC before running
- You must install the sane-backends package before you can configure this
package. If you use pre-compiled binaries (e.g. from your distribution) you
will also have to install the SANE headers (maybe in a package called
sane-devel or similar).
- For xscanimage and xcam you need the X Window libraries and headers.
Further more GTK version 0.99.13 (or above) must be installed together with
its header files. GTK can be found at http://www.gtk.org/. For some
operating systems it's necessary to set the path to gtk-config explicitely.
This can be done by using the environment variable GTK_CONFIG. For FreeBSD
- If you want to use xscanimage as a GIMP plug-in, the GIMP libraries and
headers are necessary. See http://www.gimp.org/. See also `man xscanimage'.
- If you get an error message that libsane-dll.so.1 or libsane-so.1 is not
found, you have to tell your system where the SANE-libraries are installed.
On some systems the library directory `/usr/local/lib' is not searched by
the system's dynamic library loader. If SANE is installed in `/usr/local/...'
you have to tell your system's dynamic library loader to search in
`/usr/local/lib'. For Linux: add the path `/usr/local/lib' to
/etc/ld.so.conf and call ldconfig (as root). Another approach is to set the
environment variable LD_LIBRARY_PATH (or the equivalent on other operating
systems) to `/usr/local/lib'.
To uninstall the binaries and manual pages, type `make uninstall'.
