Your USB 2.0 device (in this case, scanner) has some compatibility problem interacting with your USB 3.0 system (either USB3 ports, or USB2 ports of a USB3 hub). The problem could be caused by the scanner hardware/firmware, PC EFI/BIOS firmware, PC USB chipset, or the Linux kernel xhci_hcd driver. Possible solutions: Use a short USB 2 extension cable (or ...

After I update to 13.10 I got the same error when scanning. There are two problems here. The error Invalid argument is not a argument problem, but is a write access problem. The other problem is that the bus and dev number are wrong from the scanimage error. How to find and fix the problem install the brscan4 drivers from the brother website sudo dpkg ...

For anyone coming to this page, like I did, looking to solve this issue. I ended up trying something very simple that worked for me. My system is Ubuntu 12.10. I have a HP MFP CM1312 network printer. I installed "HPLIP Toolbox" from the Ubuntu software center (I already had HPLIP installed). From a terminal, I ran "sudo hp-plugin", clicked "Next" through ...

I had a similar problem trying to make scanning to work with my Epson Perfection V300 Photo, and using the guidance above, I found: Epson scanner software for Linux is now on the Epson site, here: http://download.ebz.epson.net/dsc/search/01/search/?OSC=LX I installed 2 files: the *iscan_2.29.1-5~usb0.1.ltdl7_amd64.deb* (you may need a different version) ...

I've answered my own question! Selecting Scan > Text now creates PDF files by default that are compressed. My preference for 'Text' is persisted, meaning that I can now quickly perform many scans without needing to manually update my settings per scan. The reason why Simple Scan was defaulting to JPEG format previously was because I was scanning as an ...

YES This scanner does work with Ubuntu. The SANE team got it working by hacking up a backend for the ix500. It currently only provides color scans at the driver level (gray and B&W are done in software). Pull down the sane-backend project from the git repo, compile it, and install. There may be a few permission problems, but as root, I can run ...

Download and install drivers from the Brother website. Select 'Driver Install Tool' download and install. This will install the lpr, CUPSwrapper and scanner drivers. Make sure you get the right ones for your operating system (i.e. 64-bit or 32-bit). I did this step over and over again and so I can't remember whether the package installed the right ones ...

I had exactly the same problem with iscan-2.29.1-5 and iscan-data_1.19.0-1, downloaded from Epson and run on 12.04 LTS with an Epson V350 attached. Simple Scanner says "No scanners detected. Please check your scanner is connected and powered on." The earliest version available from avasys seems to be 2.28 but these don't work either, giving the same result ...

I guess you've downloaded the wrong version of iscan. There are two versions available on the Epson website, one for ltdl3 en one for ltdl7. For Ubuntu 8.10 or newer you have to use the ltdl7 version.

For 12.04 In 12. 04 the printer worked out of the box. To get the scanner working I didn't have to download anything. I just edited a few files: I added to /lib/udev/rules.d/40-libsane.rules the following: # Samsung SCX-3200 ATTRS{idVendor}=="04e8", ATTRS{idProduct}=="3441", ENV{libsane_matched}="yes" And to /etc/sane.d/xerox_mfp.conf, I added ...

My advice would be to simply disable cups. sudo mv /etc/init/cups.conf /etc/cups.conf.disabled Or you could edit /etc/init/cups.conf and comment out the start line (s). #start on (filesystem # and (started dbus or runlevel [2345]) # and stopped udevtrigger) stop on runlevel [016] See ...

For 11.10 Download the official Samsung Unified Driver from this page Installed the Samsung drivers following the steps in the Samsung manual, here (see the chapter "Getting started", section "Supplied software"); Add in /etc/sane.d/xerox_mfp.conf these two lines: # Samsung SCX-3200 usb 0x04e8 0x3441 and in /lib/udev/rules.d/40-libsane.rules these two ...

I think this is a case of only being stuck until you ask for help. Soon after posting this I decided to check the ip addesses of the printer and scanner. Sure enough I'd entered a different ip for each one somehow. Since the printer worked and the scanner didn't, I made the assumption that the scanner had the wrong one. To correct this I had to enter the ...

Printer For the wifi printer part , insert all cratridges (that's quite obvious :P ) You have two choiches: You use the Epson disk and setup trough Windows, then you watch in you Access Point or Router the IP the printer received. Or (preferred) you can use a router with OTS (or WTS) feature (a button you push to setup a secure network): press the ...

I had a similar problem with my scanner (all in one Brother MFC-j410) on Ubuntu 14.04 32 bit. The scanner only worked after starting XSANE for the second time and then only did one operation preview or scan. I tried changing the usb ports to usb 2.0 to no avail. My motherboard is an Asus B85M-k with an intel i3 LGA1150 chip. I tried virtualbox with a ...

Using the right syntax: nmap -p143,993 -Pn --script imap-capabilities 127.0.0.1 Why? You use –script and the correct syntax is --script and note the difference between your dash – and -

gscan2pdf obtainable free from the Ubuntu Software Centre or simple scan are often good starting points for using scanners under Ubuntu 'straight from the box' without the need to download additional drivers.

You need to install also iscan-plugin-package Download it from Epson drivers site. You need to search your model, then click iscan-plugin-package, accept license and download a deb package that matches your architecture. After you install it, all programs like iscan, xsane will recognize the scanner and scan.

For presently supported devices Brother provide an install script that both, downloads and installs all drivers needed to set up a network printer very quickly. Set up the network connection First set up your wireless connection on the printer display according to the quick setup manual. Note down your printer's IP as we need it later. Install the ...

It's a bug in a few versions of sane-backends (pkg libsane) which affects versions 0.17.10 - 0.17.18 (the last one actually present in 15.10). Since the bug has been fixed since July 2015 we just need it packaged in a debian/ubuntu repo. Until then there are several possible workarounds: Get a version of libsane, libsane-common and libphoto2-pack10 from ...

The drivers already mentioned in the question are just fine, only they cannot be used with the Simple San or Xsane tools, but they install a tool called ScanGear that can be launched with the command scangearmp. Outputs: png, pdf, pnm. To add a .desktop launcher for that: sudo gedit /usr/share/applications/scan.desktop and paste this: [Desktop ...

Ubuntu 12.04 64bit system Download Linux_UFRII_PrinterDriver_V250_uk_EN.tar.gz Unpack Linux_UFRII_PrinterDriver_V250_uk_EN.tar.gz Skip if deb files available sudo alien -d cndrvcups-common-2.50-1.x86_64.rpm sudo alien -d cndrvcups-ufr2-uk-2.50-1.x86_64.rpm ls You should then have these 2 files: cndrvcups-common_2.50-2_amd64.deb ...

head over to This Page and download the drivers for your scanner. There should be two deb files install them both. After installing them, execute the command sudo brsaneconfig4 -a name=scanner model=MFC-J435W ip=192.168.xxx.xxx Check that your scanner is registered with brsaneconfig4 -q | grep scanner Your wireless scanner should now be installed

From what I see on the official sane page, the ScanSnap S1300 uses the epjitsu, not the fujitsu backend. You could try moving the configuration entry from fujitsu.conf to epjitsu.conf file in the same folder. I'm not sure what exactly are the differences between the S1300 and S1300i, so you may have to extract the *.nal firmware file from the Fujitsu ...

As explained in ubuntuforums.org a nice guy prepared a repository for easy driver installation. Very important: you must have completely removed all prior installations of the Unified Linux Driver before using the packages. Here I quote his instructions: Add the following line to your /etc/apt/sources.list, by editing the file using sudo, or by using ...

Regarding the removing part... simple-scan is for scanners. <600kb on disc. system-config-printer-gnome is for configuring printers. 1.6Mb on disc. It is part of the gnome desktop though so might not be that easy to get rid of. cups 1.5.0-8ubuntu6 is 8Mb. It might also be a hassle to remove since it is sort of a system wide system all programs that have ...

The scanning part seems to have been solved: cd /usr/share/sane/gt68xx/ sudo wget http://www.meier-geinitz.de/sane/gt68xx-backend/firmware/SBSfw.usb sudo chmod a+r * There are multiple sources for this but they all seem to be based on this thread. The printer should be supported out the box but multiple people seem to be having problems with this ...

Lexmark supports this printer with linux drivers. Use this link to install the latest version. Support Page Then sane should work. You may also need to add yourself to the lp user-group. I would also check for a file in the /.sane/xsane folder for a file name like Lexmark:S505.drc, this would be the scanner configuration for SANE.

For USB you have to edit the /lib/udev/rules.d/40-libsane.rules with root-rights and insert # Brother scanners ATTRS{idVendor}=="04f9", ENV{libsane_matched}="yes" in top of # The following rule will disable ... look at lsusb for the id like 04f9 is and save the file Restart udev sudo /etc/init.d/udev restart or sudo service udev restart good luck ...

For me it finally worked following these steps : Download driver from Benq . I randomly choose the XP one 6.3.5000.1 Unzip and keep only the 20F8V119.bin file from the bin directory Copy this file to the/usr/share/sane/snapscan/ directory of your computer Sudo edit the /etc/sane.d/snapscan.conf file on top you will see one line like that firmware ...
