Had the same issue. I downloaded this and this, then used the Archive Manager to extract them. Then I got to the extracted folder in Terminal and used sudo ./install.sh or sh install.sh, whatever worked. Then I ran the command scangearmp in Terminal to load the scanning software (sadly it doesn't seem to work with Simple Scan).

No, iscan is out of date, it requires old libraries that are not in modern versions of Linux.

I recommend going to this Ubuntu Scanner page. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Scanners

The official Ubuntu 14.04 repository is still at sane-backends version 1.0.23 but I fixed my problem by upgrading to sane-backends version 1.0.25 from https://launchpad.net/~rolfbensch/+archive/ubuntu/sane-git If you still want to use my scan script, you can just skip the "usbreset" step now

Just bought an HP Envy 4500. Worked out of the box with Ubuntu 14.04LTS - print, copy, scan. Simply added it as a printer with hplip.

Thanks for that. Those drivers load up this time, with no error messages, in the order that you gave. But unfortunately The v200 scanner still does not work. I am at a loss, loads of people seem to have the same problem, but as yet no positive answers to the problem. This scanner works fine in windows XP. But i do want to go fully Linux Ubuntu. and dump ...

I believe you have to install 3 separate drivers in a particular order. Here is an example for 32 bit machine: 1. iscan-data_1.34.0-1_all.deb` 2.iscan_2.30.1-1~usb0.1.ltdl7_i386.deb 3.iscan-plugin-gt-f670_2.1.2-1_i386.deb In short, 1st is "data", 2nd is "ltdl7" and 3rd is plug in. Make sure you download deb files (not the md5 or others)

Then install the newest iscan realease in the repository: apt-get install iscan EDIT: Sorry, iscan is not in the standard repository.

I am also using X*Y coordinates when using scanimage. For your use case, I would have used the following command: scanimage --progress --format tiff --mode Color --resolution 300 -l 0mm -t 0mm -x 85mm -y 58mm | convert - -resize 50% -quality 75 teste.jpg

I was having similar problems with an Epson Perfection 3170 and Ubuntu 12.04. I tried all the sane.d, epkowa, udev rules but didn't want to use the git clone, so I tried using Rolf Bensch's PPA ppa:rolfbensch/sane-git, still no success. I recalled seeing an earlier error message about missing libjpeg62; after installing it, xsane worked!

I'd test the scanner in Windows to see if the drivers there have any better luck. It could be that if the scanner's been "sitting around" a long time maybe it's just getting old & dirty & no longer scans properly at all? Testing in windows would confirm if it's a driver issue, or a scanner issue. If it does only work well in Windows, then trying to ...

You have to reset the barcode scanner scanning the manufacturer's special barcodes. After that it will work.
