Debian Hardware :: After Compiling SANE, "scanimage -L" Does Not Detect The Scanner?
Aug 5, 2010
I found someone who has a CanoScan 9000F (the new Canon flatbed scanner replacing the 8800F which is already supported in SANE 1.0.21), and managed to find out that it also uses the PIXMA protocol (the protocol used in the scanners for Canon's multi-function printer/copier/scanner devices of the PIXUS/PIXMA MP series (and other names depending on sales region).
Support for the scanner has therefore been added in the pixma backend. However, the initial tester is having trouble compiling and configuring SANE from source, so I am hoping there will be some people here who have access to this scanner and can try to help out as well.
After compiling SANE, if "scanimage -L" does not detect the scanner, probably "usb 0x04a9 0x1908" needs to be added to /etc/sane.d/pixma.conf and /usr/local/etc/sane.d/pixma.conf.
After that slow steps need to be taken to get support for the various resolutions, as this scanner as double the number of CCD rows as the 8800F, and can do double the resolution (up to 9600dpi) optically.
I got a new Canon LiDE 110 scanner. It's a very cheap device but the important thing is that it is listed as "completely supported" in the SANE site. I had to compile the latest SANE from sources, but I have no problems with compiling from sources, and now everything runs from the version in /usr/local/... The problem is that "scanimage -L" doesn't detect the scanner. I also don't see any scanners under /dev/... I think it might help if I pass the scanner device with the -d option to scanimage but I don't know how to find out what the device file of it is.
This is what I see with lsusb: Bus 005 Device 004: ID 1c4f:0003 SiGma Micro Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub Bus 001 Device 007: ID 04a9:1909 Canon, Inc.

I am trying to use sane to acces a scanner. The system is Debian Squeeze AMD64 architechture.The scanner is Brother DCP-J715W, over a network connection. I have installed the drivers from Brother, succesfully.
I can find the scanner with: $ scanimage -L device `brother3:net1;dev0' is a Brother DCP-J715W Brother
I have a debian server (squeezzy) amd 64, running with an epson BX-300f pluged to USB. And I want to share the scanner over my network. So let's do that, Intalled sane, sane utils, iscan, which I've downloaded from epson drivers and wich include epkowa drivers fro scanner to work.. after that I installed on my system (Ubuntu 9.10) xsane... on console I type:
root@bruno-laptop:/home/bruno# scanimage -L *** glibc detected *** scanimage: free(): invalid pointer: 0x00be63d0 *** WARNING: Unhandled message: interface=org.freedesktop.DBus.Introspectable, path=/, member=Introspect device 'v4l:/dev/video0' is a Noname HP Webcam virtual device device 'net:192.168.0.254:gt68xx:libusb:001:035' is a unknown manufacturer unknown device -- use override to select flatbed scanner device 'net:192.168.0.254:epkowa:usb:001:035' is a Epson Stylus BX300F/TX300F/NX300/ME Office 600F flatbed scanner device 'net:192.168.0.254:epkowa:usb:001:035' is a Epson Stylus BX300F/TX300F/NX300/ME Office 600F flatbed scanner
I don't know why I find so much things, if i only have one scanner. Then I opened xsane and found the scanner over network. I chose the epson with epkowa drivers I try to scan something but it dont output nothing and sometimes it gives me "end of file reached". I can put whatever config files here if you want to, just ask. One time it worked fine.. but only half of an image...
I added myself to the scanner and saned groups, however scanimage -L only detects the device when run as superuser. I think this may be related to [URL].

No scanners were identified. If you were expecting something different, check that the scanner is plugged in, turned on and detected by the sane-find-scanner tool (if appropriate). Please read the documentation which came with this software (README, FAQ, manpages).
I posted in the Ubuntu forum regarding a problem with an HP Scanjet G4010 scanner, but now I have a specific question. The scanner is reported with lsusb and recognized by sane-find-scanner, but scanimage -L does not find the scanner. My question is: What would be the cause of the scanner being reported in lsusb and sane-find-scanner but not recognized by scanimage -L?
I have a Genius CP-SF600 scanner. I have put the fimware in the necessary directory for the backend (/usr/share/sane/gt68xx), and what I run sane-find-scanner I get:
Code: $ sane-find-scanner # sane-find-scanner will now attempt to detect your scanner. If the # result is different from what you expected, first make sure your # scanner is powered up and properly connected to your computer.
# No SCSI scanners found. If you expected something different, make sure that # you have loaded a kernel SCSI driver for your SCSI adapter. found USB scanner (vendor=0x0458, product=0x2021, chip=GT-6816?) at libusb:002:006 # Your USB scanner was (probably) detected. It may or may not be supported by # SANE. Try scanimage -L and read the backend's manpage.
# Not checking for parallel port scanners. # Most Scanners connected to the parallel port or other proprietary ports # can't be detected by this program. # You may want to run this program as root to find all devices. Once you # found the scanner devices, be sure to adjust access permissions as # necessary.
However, when I run scanimage -L I get: Code: $ scanimage -L No scanners were identified. If you were expecting something different, check that the scanner is plugged in, turned on and detected by the sane-find-scanner tool (if appropriate). Please read the documentation which came with this software (README, FAQ, manpages). So sane sees the scanner, but then scanimage says it can't find any scanners. If I run scanimage -L as root it does seem to find the scanner.. so its a permissions problem somewhere.. I will keep investigating....
I have a Samsung SCX-4200. It was working pretty good with sane 1.0.21. I'm using slackware current, keeping updated (almost) every day. On the Mon Feb 28 update sane was updated to sane-1.0.22-i486-1. After that update xsane (as user) cannot find my scanner. I was able to find it running sane-find-scanner as root, but scanimage -L (as root) wasn't able to find the scanner. Now I have updated to the last sane package, named sane-1.0.22-i486-2 . In the changelog I can see that this rebuild should add libusb support.
In fact, now there's no way to find the scanner. And now also sane-find-scanner (as root) is no more able to detect the scanner, also running the command as root. I've tried running sane-find-scanner -v -v and scanimage -v -v -L but I can't get no useful hints. I have checked the sane configuration files but always seems good (the row with USB IDs is not commented in the backend file, which is xerox_mfp, and the backend is listed in dll.conf).
I too have what looks like the same problem. I too have read all the relevant man pages and other relevant sites: Supported devices [URL] CanoScan LiDE 110 (the printer I've just bought) has "complete" support apparently. Followed directions here: [URL] Read: [URl] Another story of purchasing a "complete"ly supported scanner. [URL] The solution? Use windows xp in a vm.
I don't think much of that sort of solution. As a temporary work around... ok. I'm running debian lenny.

I have and old scanner, Canoscan 3200F, which is not supported by sane. It will not run in Wine, because there is no Sane support. Does anyone know if I was to install a Windows OS in Virtual Box would that enable me to run it or would I have the same problem as I have with Wine?
I have a problem here where sane no longer detects my scanner.

No scanners were identified. xsane reports no devices detected (I have it in French, "Aucun p'rif'rique disponible"). I get the same when I launch xsane as root, so I doubt it is a usb-rules issue. It used to work; I checked /proc/bus/usb, but that is empty.
OS: CentOS 5.6 yesterday i bought a new HP network printer/scanner (OfficeJet Pro 8500). It installed correctly using hplip drivers. I can print and scan without any problem, very nice and fast device. I did some research where the information where the device port is stored in sane, but cannot find anything. I tried to remove my old network device port for my Brother scanner, but did not find the config file where this information is stored. Neither /etc/sane.d/* nor ~/.sane/xsane/* contains this information.
I have been given an Epson CX5000 3-in-1 that I only want to use the scanner part of (I have a laser and hate buying ink). The scanner works, tested under windoze, but xsane and scanimage -L fail to find it. But, lsusb does: $ /sbin/lsusb Bus 001 Device 003: ID 04b8:082b Seiko Epson Corp. Stylus DX5050
I saw a post about it under ubuntu that you had to modify /etc/udev/rules.d/45-libsane.rules Which doesn't exist on my Slackware 13 install. I hope this Epson runs faster than my Canon FB630U, which takes almost a four minutes to scan a 5x6 photo and forget scanning an 8.5x11 page (go take a nap).
I am having a problem with the Sane Drivers and a Scanjet HP4570 scanner. I have sane-backends-1.0.21-6.fc14 and I am running on x86_64 machine. Other info in my signature below. I have verified that the specific Scanner works as I have installed it on a Win Machine. I ran yum provides *libsane* . Results with respect to the hp5590 libs was --->
How to get the Scanner working, as I would expect it to work out of the box. It is one of the scanners that is completely supported, as per SANE web page info. I also have a hp3300c and it found that immediately.
1. Unless root chmod's /dev/parport0 to include o+rw, a user running xsane just gets the dialog 'No devices available'. Should the canon_pp driver be installed as su root, perhaps? CUPS uses the same port for printing without problems. Which library or executable needs to have permissions changed to change to run as root?
2. The N640P has a printer output port built in. As I have only one parallel port, I piggy-back my printer through the scanner. This does not work for xsane in Copy mode: nothing prints until I close xsane and then all I get printed is a stream of binary characters, not an image. I guess the canon_pp driver is holding the port open in such a way that CUPS sees the device as being busy. Any ideas on how to combat that? I am a C programmer and quite happy to help by hacking the code, if I have a start point. It irritates me to have to boot the print server into WinXP just so scanning and copying work without fuss.
I am not able to use the touchpad, etc. on my laptop because the hardware is not supported until kernel 4.5. (This was confirmed by installing fedora-rawhide with 4.5: all the hardware problems were cleared up.) So I tried to compile a 4.5 kernel and install that in a testing version of Debian, but the hardware is still not working.
What I tried: copied the kernel boot config from the testing installation to the directory where the kernel was to be compiled, in order to keep the configuration of the current system. After compiling the kernel the first time I thought that perhaps the issue was that the right options for the new i2c-based hardware had not been selected in menuconfig and were not the default in the kernel config, so I compiled the kernel again, selecting the necessary hardware to be installed (and not as a module). But after the second (and third) kernel compiles the hardware still does not function (appears not to exist).
This is the first few times I've tried to compile a kernel, so I may be missing something obvious. After the second compile, I was wondering how to tell if the right kernel was in use, but grub only saw one 4.5 kernel (besides the original one) and I don't know where to look to see if the kernel has the different --revision=xyz it was assigned when running fakeroot make-kpkg. I was also wondering if it is possible to add the missing hardware by compiling the modules separately and adding them as boot options.
I am having some issues with 11.04. My print/fax/scanner is connected directly to the ethernet line, and 11.04 cannot detect the scanner portion through the Simple Scan program. I am using an HP Officejet 4500.
I used to be able to scan perfectly fine when using 10.10, and it just won't work anymore I have the HPLIP toolbox installed, and I can't get it to open/run!
I'm using debian lenny, I bought a new Hp officejet j4500 scanner but the xsane is unable to detect the scanner. It says device not found. If I run xsane as root it detects and works properly it is obvious.I have added the user to scanner,saned and also to root user group.
Does anybody know where to find an rpm of sane-frontends?I want to use my auto-document-feed functionality on my scanner using scanadf, which is part of sane-frontends.Otherwise I'd also welcome alternative suggestions for scanadf.
I'm running Suse 11.2 and using a Brother DCP7065DN scanner/printer, which actually comes with stunning drivers and support for Linux.
I have been told that some virus scanners for linux (including but not limited to AVG, Antivira, clamAV, others) are available to ubuntu. My question is which of these still CURRENTLY support detection of WINDOWS viruses in addition to linux viruses. I would like to boot the Ubuntu live jump drive I have to scan windows machines and at least detect viruses, dont really need to repair. who knows which virus scanners compatible with ubuntu that will detect windows viruses as well
I just saw this message in the syslog and wondered if it could have anything to do with my previous problems with LXDE crashing:
Code: Select allSep 6 08:03:34 MyComputer kernel: [ 1003.788502] colord-sane: segfault at 21 ip b4de95ba sp b5609fb8 error 6 in libdbus-1.so.3.7.2[b4dbe000+4a000]
I have read a number of bug reports regarding this issue and it appears to go back about two years. It was supposedly fixed but that does not appear to be the case unless there is something peculiar with my Wheezy 7.8 installation.I just found this on a Ubuntu bug report. It is related to a colord-sane but not necessarily exactly the same as what I am experiencing.This is a libsane bug, not a colord bug. If you want to to work around it, change /etc/colord.conf to have UseSANE=false
I've installed Squeeze 2.6.32-5-amd64 on my laptop (Alienware M17X R3, Intel i7 Sandybridge, ATI Technologies Inc Broadway [ATI Mobility Radeon HD 6800 Series])The screen is 17", with maximum resolution of 1920 x 1080. After a default install of the operating system, the maximum resolution I can select is 1280 x 1024.My research so far has suggested that I need to edit the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file and provide xorg with the necessary resolution.
Again, by default, the xorg.conf file is not created. This leads me to believe that xorg is scanning my hardware at startup and providing me with whatever it thinks is appropriate. I tried following these instructions to generate an xorg.conf file. This process created an xorg.conf file under /root/.
When I copy this xorg.conf file to /etc/X11, I get a blank (i.e. black) screen. Deleting this file restores the default resolution 1280 x 1024.This system is dual booting with Windows 7. Under windows I am able to get a 1920 x 1080 resolution, so I know my hardware is up to it.At this stage I have yet to install the drivers for the Radeon graphics card.What are my options regarding configuring xorg to give me a higher screen resolution?
