Debian Hardware :: Make Lexmark S305 Scanner (wifi) Work With Xsane?
Mar 21, 2010
After I solved the issue about printer, now I'm struggling to make the integrated scanner of lexmark S305 work with debian.The device is connected to the network through integrated wifi connection (it is NOT connected with usb to a host, which act as a server), but I don't know how xsane can recognize it.I have just added the ip address in /etc/sane.d/net.conf, but it doesn't work at all. I read some tutorials on how to configure a network scanner, but they are all related to a scanner connected to a computer through usb, and then shared on the network by this computer.The second issue (probably more important) is that xsane probably doesn't recognize even with usb connection the scanner. The latter is not listed in the supported scanner list. Indeed connecting by usb to my laptop, it doesn't work. I haven't found any driver for it, but probably it could work with driver of other scanners.
I have a dell e5500 laptop, 2GHz ram 80gig hard drive dual boot linux and win xp pro. a new lexmark s305 printer can not get driver to work from lexmark web site. printer works fine with xp.pro, don't do anything with ubuntu 10.x
I installed lexmark S305 following the guide from dave66, posted here [URL].. but the printer doesn't work. Every time a new job is in the queue, it fails to print. Basically the error reported is E [13/Mar/2010:20:33:20 +0100] [Job 2] Job stopped due to filter errors; please consult the error_log file for details. Here I uploaded my error_log from cups: [URL].. I have Debian unstable, kernel 2.6.32-trunk-amd64 and cups 1.4.2-9.1.
I am a total noob, don't know anything about installing tar based software into my Ubuntu 10.4 set up (a Dell desktop previously running XP). I want to install a driver for my Lexmark Impact s305 multipurpose machine, using the driver the Lexmark site recommended, but have been completely unsuccessful.
Here's the software by name. lexmark-inkjet-legacy-1.0-1.i386.deb.sh.tar.gz. I extracted after right clicking on the icon, and that produced this file: lexmark-inkjet-legacy-1.0-1.i386.deb.sh. I launched that, got past the license agreement, and came up to a screen that said I needed root privileges and asked for an "administrative password."
I only have one password and entered that. It always works installing software via Synaptic or the Ubuntu Software Center, and everywhere else. Nevertheless, in trying to install this driver, I got this error message: "incorrect password." I have been unable to get around this despite repeated efforts. The installer software simply won't accept my password and so it won't install the driver.
In researching the issue, I have seen other people complain of the same problem. Given that I am a noob at this, have I missed something critical to the install? Does the software just not work (I have heard Lexmark is not too keen on Linux)?
HP 5610 all in one device scanner settings please. The printer works fine, I have a problem getting the Scanner to work.
I am running Ubuntu Karmic on my Dual Core Desktop PC. When I run Xsane I get the preview window showing OfficeJet 5600 Series. I also get another little error window saying "Error during CMS conversion:Could not open Scanner ICM profile". It seems like Xsane recognises my HP 5610 All in One Printer/Scanner/Fax/Copier device but what is the error all about?
I've installed XSane Image Scanner. When I first opened it, it searched for my scanner and didn't give any error messages, and it had my scanner model in the heading of the scan window. But when I hit the scan button, it gave me saying, "Failed to start scanner: error during device I/O.I closed everything, and opened XSane again. This time it said there was no scanner available. The scanner is plugged into the USB port and uses that for both power and data. It's a Canoscan Model N650U.
I have seen some threads asking the same question but all the threads are old, has there been a break through allowing X5470 to work under Ubuntu linux? i dont want to use windows as it bloats my hard drive with unnecessary software.
I've been using Ubuntu 9.10 'in anger' for a couple of weeks now and overall I'm impressed. However, a couple of days ago my old Epson C46 (which had been working fine under Karmic) died, and I had a look for a replacement.
I decided on a Canon MP270 because Canon seemed to have gone to the trouble of providing Linux drivers on their website. I even phoned Canon and they confirmed it should work fine.
Today the AIO arrived and I downloaded the printer and scanner drivers from Canon. I could't get the install.sh files to run - tried ./ sudo and sh etc, no joy. Anyway, I used the package manager to install the .deb files and that seemed to go OK.
The printing side of things works fine but I can't get the scanner recognized by Xsane.......
The scanner is seen using lsusb command but when i open xsane it is not recognized. Xsane wants to use the webcam instead. I think this happened because i saved the settings of the former scanner a few days ago. Should i delete that setting that is saved in the home>.sane>.xsane directory? The old scanner is a Canon Canoscan lide N1220U and the new one is a Canon Canoscan lide 100. I would appreciate any suggestions as i tried a reboot with no improvement :0)
Whenever I switch on my scanner (Epson V200) then it launches Xsane automatically. Now I know Xsane is wonderful, but often I want to use Epson's iscan instead, and for other users I prefer Simple Scan. Another thread would be a good place to discuss the reasons.
So I would like to stop my scanner launching anything when switched on.
I've got a SCSI scanner that is being detected by the kernel on Fedora 14, but XSane does not see it. If I run "sane-find-scanner" it says that noSCSI or USB scanners are found.The scanner is a Cacham Splendeur 3024, model VM3552. I believe this scanner is the same as the Relisys Scorpio VM3552. In /var/log/messages, the following entries show up as soon as the scanner is warmed up:
Code: Mar 11 13:34:45 dt kernel: [22595.116042] usb 4-2: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 41
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.
Using xsane with HP scanjet 3970 scanner. It used to be that when I plugged the scanner in and started the xsane a window would come up asking if I wanted to use my HP scanner or my Hauppauge video card. Well, that window no longer comes up and the Xsane wants to use my video card. When I try to "scan" the program closes and all the windows associated with it disappear.
I have a Fujitsu ScanPartner 93GX scanner that freezes Xsane when I try to use it. The same thing happens to Simple Scan too.
When use sane-find-scanner I get the following:
Code: # 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. found SCSI scanner "FUJITSU M3093GX 02" at /dev/sg0
I started to think I might need a different driver. I found a driver (sane-fujitsu.5) at mangpages (link), but there are no instructions as to what directory to place it in, what files need to be modified to point to it, etc.
The printer of my multi Epson CX5600 works fine, but when I run xsane I get the "No devices available" window. I tried running it as root with the same result. I have installed "iscan-firmware-2.1.1-1.fc12 (noarch) but it still wont work.h kernel 22.214.171.124-147.fc13.i686.
I have a Brother mfc-8890dw that is attached to my local area network.I can ping the static ip address of the printer and receive a reply. I can print from all applications.I cannot scan. I did modify the rules files but that only appears pertinent for usb attached devices. What do I need to do to get XSane to recognize my Ethernet attached scanner/printer?
I am tired, and I simply can't find an easy answer.So, today I need the scanner in slackware64 13.1, only to find that it does not work as user. I have an HP Deskjet F2180 and using CUPS it is identified as hp:/usb/Deskjet_F2100_series?serial=CN81H4S2SP04TK.In the past the simple solution was to add oneself to the right groups, but it does not work this time.As user I get:
I have an HP C5100 photosmart printer/copier/scanner which works fine as a printer from Linux and as a printer or scanner from a PC running Windows XP. The device is net connected not local to either box. "Sane" (installed) does not appear to support this printer (from web site) but other comments seem to imply that others have made it work using "hplip" (also installed). Nowhere do I see instructions on how to make the scanner work from Linux.
Ok, installing the Epson DX8400 printer driver was easy... I just turned it on, and Ubuntu searched and installed the printer itself.
But scanning... that's another story. In Ubuntu 9.04 the trick was as simple as installing libsane-extras in Synaptic, but this doesn't work in Ubuntu 9.10! When I try to run XSane, it simply replies that there is no available device...
I am having trouble getting my HP 6310 All-In-One scanner working using it on its ethernet interface, set to 192.168.1.208. Installed fine under cups for printing. hplib installed.

I have a Sony VAIO VGN SR29VN with ubuntu 9.10; I am trying to make a wifi connection through WPA work, to no avail. WEP and open connections work correctly, but when I try to connect to a WPA network using TTLS via network manager, y get errors of this type:Current regulatory domain updated by AP to:ES
preceded by lots of "leaving channel xxxx intact" and followed by "disassociating by local choice".This Sony is using an Intel 5100 wifi; any idea of what's going on or how to fix it?
since i upgraded to natty recently the lexmark x2650 stopped printing, the scanning continues to work. I can install the driver which is offered by lexmark, but not print. I am using natty 32bit, and the driver is lexmark-inkjet-08-driver-1.0-1.i386.deb.sh.zip The error output looks like this:
With Lucid I was capable of scanning both with my Epson Perfection 640 U scanner and with my HP-M1120n-MFP network scanner. To get the HP-M1120n to work I had to rename a file which I do not remenber which was. I do not remember where I found the instructions. I am running HPLIP 3.10.6 with Device Manager 15.0. I did a fresh install of Maverick Beta and I am not able to neither scan with the Epson Perfection scanner nor with the M1120n-MFP. As said, both worked with Lucid. As said I had to rename a file to get the MFP scanner to work. I include screen shots to this post.
