Dell 1600n network scanner driver is a driver for network scanning using a Dell 1600n Printer/Scanner/Fax/Copier.
It is implemented as a Perl script. In principle, this means that it should be cross-platform.
It has been tested under Linux (Debian) and Windows (NT4 with Cygwin) on Intel. Supported formats are TIFF and JPEG. With an external program (e.g. ImageMagick convert), PDF is supported.
Here are some key features of "Dell 1600n network scanner driver":
· TIFF and JPEG network scanning using a Dell 1600n MFP.
· PDF scanning support via an external program (eg: ImageMagick convert)
· in order to work out of the box you'll need "convert" (for PDF conversion) and "mutt" (for email) installed. If are you missing either of these but have some equivalent then have a look around the global variables near the start of the script (eg: %main::emailCmd and %main::pdfConvertCmd). Hopefully all will become clear.
Download the script to a convenient location. Run with no arguments for usage like:
