I have the Samsung CLX-3185 printer/scanner. The printer-part works fine using 3175 drivers found by (Xubuntu/XFCE) printer setup wizard. However it does not seem to recognize the scanner part. Xsane does not find the scanner. Is there a setup HOWTO for this anywhere that I could use?
Instructions how to set-up samsung CLX-3185FW.
From the 1st link:
After executing instructions I have successfully installed CLX-3185FW over the network. It prints and scans over the network. I have made it on Ubuntu 11.10, 32bit.
Before installing you MUST REMOVE any other previously installed drivers for Samsung.
Step 1 (edit sources):
Step 2 (install authentication key) :
Step 3 (update sources):
Step 4 (install packages):
Open ubuntu software center and install one by one all packaged that start with " samsungmfp-", excepting:
Step 5a (check if you are in lp group). Run in Terminal: cat /etc/group | grep lp
If your account name is next to lp, everything is ok, else add yourself to lp group, e.g. execute Step 5b.
Step 5b (add yourself into lp group if needed):0 sudo usermod -a -G lp USERNAME

That's it! Now you can search for your printer in network and add it as clx-3180 series and it will work.
P.S. Previously I have made some changes to some files. But I do not know if it has any impact. If you have executed the five step above and still no luck, try making those changes:
The model number Samsung CLX-3185.
You may refer to the below links and use the troubleshooters. Check if it lists and helps resolve any issues: Open the Printer troubleshooter:
You may check if you have the latest drivers installed for the device. You may refer to the below link for getting the latest drivers and check.
WHOA HAUS!!! Check it out. You don't need all that stuff. Add the repo, apt-get update, and install these 2 bits... samsungmfp-scanner samsungmfp-netdiscovery
That's all you need.. at least for Ubuntu 12.04 that is all you need. I successfully printed a test page and scanned a document.
here's some feedback:
now the mfp works fine. thank you for the solution(s)!
btw: I'm with a CLX-3185 -> no netdiscovery required.
I had the "Samsung Unified Linux Driver" and "Xsane" installed already and the printer worked well. Only the scanner was not found. After adding following entry in
#Samsung CLX-3180 tcp 10.0.0.11
Now there is great installations in Samsungs website;
Use this install and everything works OK!
