What I know about it is that when you give the command sgcheck or the command
find-scanner, and in the output it lists your scanner, then you can say that
the kernel recognizes the scanner.

Questions about sane you can better ask at the sane mailing list at It gives more chance of succes, the programmers of
the backends can then answer the question.

You can better say something like this;

(for sh and bash shell);

For the csh shell you should use the setenv command (read the manpage)
Most important is the entire "Scanner Inquiry Block".

I don't know about the microtek2 backend, read the manual page.

Good luck.
