I can not scan with Ubuntu 12.10. In Ubuntu 12.04 I could scan with the same hardware.

What are the results of sane-find-scanner and scanimage -L? And is there a reason for not telling us brand/make/model of your scanner? (seems important information to me). –  Rinzwind Feb 19 '13 at 9:38

1 Answer 1

Problem you face is this: No SCSI scanners found.

The answer is given too: If you expected something different, make sure that you have loaded a kernel SCSI driver for your SCSI adapter.

Looks like you need to install a backend. This http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/precise/en/man5/sane-plustek.5.html states you can use sane-plustek so install that one.

Vendor Hewlett-Packard - ID: 0x03F0
   ----------------------------------------------------------
   USB Model:         ASIC:  Properties:              Prod-ID
   ----------------------------------------------------------
   ScanJet 2100C      LM9831  600x1200dpi 42bit 512Kb 0x0505
   ScanJet 2200C      LM9832  600x1200dpi 42bit 512Kb 0x0605

Oh and ... if you look at the link I posted: looks like 12.04 did have that package and 12.10 has not been updated (it shows the 12.04 package in the manual). So this answers why it does work on 12.04 and not in 12.10

thank you....now i can buy a new scanner :(. I do not get enough experience to all. –  user133449 Feb 19 '13 at 12:39
    
I do not understand this comment @user133449 Just install the sane-plustek package and it should work. –  Rinzwind Feb 19 '13 at 14:09
    
Why i can install sane-plustek? Ubuntu 12.10 i find no package. And when i download the file....where copy? –  user133449 Feb 19 '13 at 17:23
    
Install the 12.04 package debian installer from the link I postes. USC will handle everything else. –  Rinzwind Feb 19 '13 at 17:48
