I have a Samsung SCX-4200 multifunction printer/scanner which works fine under Windows 8. The printer works fine under Ubuntu 12.10, but the scanner doesn't work.

"sudo sane-find-scanner" find nothing. While "scanimage -L" get: "device `xerox_mfp:libusb:003:016' is a SAMSUNG ORION multi-function peripheral".

When use "xsane", it says there is no scanner. How can I do?

  • I follow the installation guides in "README.linux". Now both "sane-find-scanner" and "scanimage -L" cannot find the scanner. – wt70707 Jun 7 '13 at 4:22

This is a kind of an old question, but I had similar issues in Ubuntu 18.04.

The problem in my case was USB3. After putting the cable to an USB2 input, it worked all fine.
