First post here. I've migrated from Windows to Ubuntu 11.10 - yeah! I've managed to get everything working except my scanner. It's a Lexmark Intuition S505 and not listed at all here http://www.sane-project.org/sane-mfgs.html#Z-LEXMARK.
- Could someone help me with the troubleshooting steps. I am a complete Ubuntu newbie
- As it's not listed I assume I should write to SANE directly, but I want to make sure I've completed basic troubleshooting first. e.g. it seems you can sudo an call xsane from the terminal, so more details would be appreciated
- Should I raise a request with Lexmark?
- Are there any driver files similar to those listed on How can I get an Epson TX560WD scanner working? that would help me?
I have Simply Scan but when I try to scan it says No scanner detected. I use he same Lexmark Intuition device as a printer which works like a charm.
