A scanner button daemon for Linux (and possibly other Unix-like operating systems) which allows you to trigger certain actions (e.g. run a shell script) whenever one of the scanner's front panel buttons has been pressed.
I tested scanbuttond version 0.2.3.1 on my Raspberry Pi with a Canon CanoScan LiDE 25 Scanner. Everything is working fine! The buttonpressed.sh script is executed exactly once at every push of a button (with one little exception, see below) and gets the correct number. The only little glitch is, if you push a button multiple times fast in a row, there is only one event detected. If you push another button after that, you sometimes have to wait some seconds (up to 15) until the buttonpressed.sh script is executed. But this should not be a common use case as you normally would push only one button and wait for the action to be completed. Thank you very much for your awesome work! It helps a lot in my project to build a network enabled scan-and-print combination with a Raspberry Pi, an old scanner and a cheap usb printer.
Scanbuttond is wonderful! Thanks.
Very good, it works very well.
