Unfortunately I have a Xerox Workcentre 3025_NI multifunction printer and after installing the official driver on my Ubuntu Gnome 17.04 the scanner does not work, only the printer. Under 16.04 the printer and the scanner also work. I don't understand why.
I found an answer here.
I run the following two commands:
sudo ln -sfr /usr/lib/sane/* /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/sane
sudo adduser $USER lp
Then, I updated the file
sudo vi /etc/sane.d/xerox_mfp.conf by adding the follwong two lines:
#Xerox WorkCentre 3025 usb 0x0924 0x42da
I saved and closed the file. And finally, reboot.
It worked fine.
I don't know about 17.04. But in 16.04 Xerox driver does not work. Since it is rebranded Samsung M2070, you can use samsung driver (V1.00.37_00.99) http://www.samsung.com/us/support/owners/product/wireless-mono-multifunction-printer-xpress-m2070
Printing works out of the box. Scanner discovery over network does not work. But workarround like
simple-scan "smfp:net;PRINTER_IP_ADDRESS" does the trick.
And just got scanner autodiscovery working by allowing port 22161 in firewall
sudo ufw allow from 10.0.0.0/24 to port 22161
Of course replace 10.0.0.0/24 by your network range.
It is better to install Samsung drivers from the following page as they are deb packaged and automatically adds your device with udev: The Samsung Unified Linux Driver Repository
This might be a solution for you: https://www.hamrick.com/vuescan/xerox_workcentre_3025.html#technical-information They seem to be a boutique software company offering scanner solutions for Linux, MacOS, and Windows. I had a similar problem looking for a Linux solution for my Xerox Documate 510. I have not tried it yet but it appears to be the best alternative.
The solution given on the Xerox Forum worked for me for WorkCentre 3225 on 20.04. Try it. It may work for you too.
