See https://wiki.ubuntuusers.de/Scanner/Brother/ (German site). Worked for me with a Brother DCP-585CW. They write almost at the bottom of the article: Scannen über Netzwerk ab Ubuntu 16.04 (64bit) Seit Ubuntu 16.04 funktioniert der Scanner (hier MFC-9320CW) nicht mehr in ScanLite und vermutlich auch anderen Anwendungen, die sane benutzen. Der ...

Checking the version of SANE (acronym for Scanner Access Now Easy, the driver project for scanning on Linux) for Ubuntu 16.04, the default version is 1.0.14. Looking on the SANE scanner model search tool the support for that device is: CanoScan LiDE 220 USB 0x04a9/0x190f complete GL124+ based, resolution from 75 to 4800 dpi It looks like this ...

My FIX... My Brother DCP-J140W wifi printer+scanner stopped working after a 16.04 install. The Brother Installer complained about some unknown directories, bad file descriptors, etc. I eventually reinstalled CUPS then re-ran installer. Now printer + scanner working. As follows: apt-get purge apt-get install cups sudo bash linux-brprinter-installer-2.0.0-1 ...

I have a Brother HL-2270DW. After I installed 16.04 The printer would be configured, but would not be available (what ever that means). Then I discovered that the Device URI in System Settings was not the same as what it was with 14.04. I manually changed it to be the same as what it was with 14.04 and the printer works fine now. I can't explain why, but ...

I'm fairly new at this too, but I had the same error: [bjnp] create_broadcast_socket: ERROR - bind socket to local address failed - Cannot assign requested address It went away when I commented out drivers I didn't need in /etc/sane.d/dll.conf. I think I read somewhere it might be a Canon driver. It might not get sane working, but it might stop the error ...

The "automatic" (recommended) install does not include sane support. To fix, just remove and purge the install done as "automatic" and reinstall answering (c)ustom at about the 3rd choice you have to make. A couple of questions later you'll have to go through five or so choices for support. Be sure to choose the "Network/JetPrint" option as well as the ...

D'oh, of course I figure it out right after posting. Anyway, hp-setup is still the answer, despite the default GUI only adding things -- run hp-setup -r and check everything in the resulting list, even though none appear to be a scanner.

I had a similar problem, and i've downloaded and installed the lsb-core package for Ubuntu 14.04, and it works. Try this: sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://cz.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu trusty main" && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install lsb-core -y Then, try to install epson-inkjet-printer-201303w again.

A workaround I found, was setting up a virtual machine (both VirtualBox and VMWare [player] should be ok) with any linux distro you want, I configured it to be compatible with USB 2.0 protocol. Once I redirect my USB device to the VM I can scan from there.

I was having an awful problem installing my Epson printer in Ubuntu 16.04 I had messages dependences not met lsb3.2 in the ubuntu software center; the same message for gdebi. I will point out at this time the gnome software center apart from being short of a number of packages I have previously used does not show the missing dependences so I installed the ...

Sorry. This is not the answer but is a similar issue that could be for the same reason. If this is not the same issue, I'll delete and post a different question, so please tell me if I'm doing it wrong. So I'm on LinuxMint 17.3 with my Samsung SCX-4300 and it also prints but the scanner doesn't work. The sane-find-scanner shows: # sane-find-scanner will ...

You can use the ppa from sane stuff ppa:rolfbensch/sane-git for the latest sane-backends, type in terminal "sudo add-apt-repository ppa:rolfbensch/sane-git", and accept the key by pressing enter, as you should know that you have to have installed sane package to use your scanner in Linux or you can install that after adding the ppa because all scanners in ...

It is only one device, but accessing via two different methods. I presume this device is connected to your network for printing and scanning, as well as connected to your computer via USB. The second entry in that list is for accessing the device over the network (see the ip=192.168.1.104 bit. To get rid of one of the entries, you can either disconnect it ...

I coldn't get my Epson to print under Ubuntu 16.04, so I worked around this by doing a manual install of the LSB: Note that I got the files from the br server as a live in Brazil, you may get from another server that suits you best. Another note is that I got the _amd64.deb versions, you may need _i386.deb if you're running under a 32 bit enviroment, if ...
