Hi folks,
the people from sane-devel requested that sane-desc should create the
hal-information from the *.desc files, too. This was not the case with my last
patch, therefore I implemented the required modifications and I have sent a
corresponding patch to sane-devel and wait for a feedback.

As suggested the generic scanner rule:

<!-- Generic SCSI Scanner device -->
<match key="@info.parent:scsi.type" string="scanner">
<append key="info.capabilities" type="strlist">scanner</append>

should be integrated somewhere in the hal-info package. However, everything
that needs to happen because the scanner promotes itself as a processor will be
provided by sane-desc.

So, the file 70-scanner.fdi would look as follows:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<deviceinfo version="0.2">
<match key="info.category" string="scsi_generic">
<!-- Some SCSI Scanners announce themselves "processor" -->
<match key="@info.parent:scsi.type" string="processor">
<match key="@info.parent:scsi.vendor" string="EPSON">
<!-- SCSI Scanner "Epson Perfection 1200S" -->
<match key="@info.parent:scsi.model" string="Perfection1200">
<append key="info.capabilities" type="strlist">scanner</append>
<match key="@info.parent:scsi.vendor" string="HP">
<!-- SCSI Scanner "Hewlett-Packard ScanJet 6200C" -->
<match key="@info.parent:scsi.model" string="C6270A">
<append key="info.capabilities" type="strlist">scanner</append>
<match key="@info.parent:scsi.vendor" string="HP">
<!-- SCSI Scanner "Hewlett-Packard ScanJet 6300C" -->
<match key="@info.parent:scsi.model" string="C7670A">
<append key="info.capabilities" type="strlist">scanner</append>
<match key="info.subsystem" string="usb">
<!-- Hewlett-Packard Any all-in-one device -->
<match key="usb.vendor_id" int="0x03f0">
<match key="usb.product_id" int="0x0000">
<append key="info.capabilities" type="strlist">scanner</append>

The list of scsi-scanners promoting themselves as "processor" will grow as the
number grows that I know. The only modification neccessary will be the addition
of appropriate strings within the .desc files of sane-backend.

This being said I will supply a patch for sane-backends too, as soon as it
becomes clear whether or not the modified version of sane-desc.c is acceptable
and what modifications are requrired in addition to what I've done so far.

Take care

Dieter Jurzitza

P.S. will look again into #9 within the next few days.
