this is my first question on askubuntu, if i did a mistake, please tell me.
The Problem: I want to use my Kodak i2400 scanner on my PC with Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (x64) installed.
I downloaded the official drivers from the manufacturer-page and installed it. During the installation there is the first inconsistency i noticed that the setup - the script says that SANE is not installed (but it is). So if i continue the installation despite the SANE is not recognized, it tells me the Software installation is complete and indeed in the folder /etc/sane.d/ there is a new file called kds_i2000.conf.
Now when i connect my scanner, nothing happens, i tried: scanimage -L -> it tells me "No scanners were identified ..." sane-find-scanner -> it tells me "... No USB scanners found ..." starting xsane or gscan2pdf -> a popup shows "no devices available" and "no devices found"
So i tried using the same scanner on my notebook with Ubuntu 16.04 LTS installed and everything worked as expected, i was able to scan and none of this problems occur.
Has anything changed at the sane driver? i dont know why sane is not recognizing the scanner.
I would be very thankful for help, regards
