Hardware :: Find Scanner - Yes / Scanimage - No

Oct 25, 2010

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?

General :: Scanimage -L Does Not Detect Scanner

May 13, 2011

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.
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 046d:080f Logitech, Inc.
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
The scanner is on Bus 001 Device 007.

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.

Ubuntu :: Canon MX320 Scanner Not Able To Get The XSane Image Scanner To Recognize Scanner?

Jul 11, 2010

I just received a Canon Pixma MX320 as a gift.

I am currently running the Ubuntu 10.04 OS

I was able to get the printer up and running by downloading the printer driver for debian linux (3.1) from the Canon site without any problems.

Unfortunately I am not having the same luck with the scanner.

I tried downloading ScanGear MP for Linux (deb) (1.3) from the same Canon site but have not yet been able to get the XSane Image Scanner to recognize this scanner driver for my Canon.

Debian Hardware :: Cannot Find The Scanner

Mar 10, 2015

Very easy to get the printer working via wifi on this printer/scanner under Wheezy. But oh the scanner! XSane doesn't see it via wifi- worked ok on USB. Problem could be with Xsane or CUPS? URL....One shows various useful tips under one roof: I can now access the scanner using xsane on the command line; but xsane cannot find the scanner when launched normally]

Ubuntu :: Unable To Find The 'scanner' Drivers?

Mar 10, 2011

I have a CanonMP280 printer and Ubuntu 10.10. Mp280 is not recognized by Ubuntu 10.10. Through 'cybertechhelp' I was very lucky to get the printing drivers to install. So the printer works.

No-one seems to be able to find the 'scanner' drivers and Canon_help is useless. So I must dual-boot with Windows to be able to scan.

Although win7 is a vast improvement on vista. I would much prefer to single-boot with Ubuntu. I tried other Ubuntu and Ubuntu-Based distros, but, the printer-drivers I have, only work in Ubuntu 08.04 - 10.10

Software :: Clients Cannot Find Network Scanner?

Feb 5, 2009

I currently have a network with an older machine, which is (usually) operated in headless mode as a data & backup server, with a fixed IP of I have two client machines, a desktop & a laptop, which use DHCP. All three computers are running Slackware-12.2, the clients with a full install & the server without any X components. I want to set the server to serve a scanner & have been following this link, which is mostly a rewrite of the man page for sane.d. I set up saned per the article, adding the saned:saned user. 'scanimage -L' works for both root & my local user on the server. I can ssh into the server as my desktop user & 'scanimage -L' works. Ditto if I ssh into the server, then 'su -' to root. I can scan either locally from the server or via ssh from the desktop machine. BUT, I cannot get the scanner recognized on the network. On the server, I have this line in /etc/sane.d/saned.conf:

Code: this line in /etc/services:


sane-port 6566/tcp #SANE network scanner daemon & this line in /etc/inetc.conf:


sane-port stream tcp nowait saned:saned /usr/sbin/saned saned

I have changed the line in /etc/sane.d/saned.conf to just "+", for testing. That didn't work either. On the clients, I have these two uncommented lines in /etc/sane.d/net.conf:


My server user is in the same groups, less vboxusers. The server is identified in /etc/hosts & I can connect to it via ssh & mount nfs shares from it. What am I (not) doing that is killing network scanning?

Slackware :: Sane - After Upgrade To 1.0.22 Cannot Find Scanner

Mar 24, 2011

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).

Ubuntu :: LibUSB Not Available To Sane Find Scanner

Apr 21, 2011

I too have what looks like the same problem. I too have read all the relevant man pages and other relevant sites:

CanoScan LiDE 110 (the printer I've just bought) has "complete" support apparently.
Followed directions here: [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.

Ubuntu :: Why Can't 9.10 Find My Epson TX110 Printer/scanner?

Apr 29, 2010

I can't use my printer/scanner - it is an Epson TX110. When I try to use Image scan - I get the message; "Could not send the command to scanner. Check the scanner's status."

There is nothing wrong with the MFC apart from not working on Ubuntu 9.10. I have had it connected to another computer that ran Ubuntu 9.01 (I think that was the release used) and it ran fine but now I'm stuck -

I have drivers installed but cant get them to co-operate with me.

Recently got a Canon Canoscan 8800F after looking it up on the SANE site and said it was completely supported for Linux.

and sane-find-scanner returns:found USB scanner (vendor=0x04a9 [Canon], product=0x1901 [CanoScan]) at libusb:001:005

but scanimage -L (under my user login or sudo) returns only the webcam. No other scanner found.

Ubuntu :: XSane Image Scanner Won't Recognize Scanner?

Sep 7, 2010

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.

Ubuntu :: Scanner Not Seen On 10.10

Oct 28, 2010

I've been using a Nikon Coolscan 4000ED on Ubuntu for a couple of years via Vuescan with no problems at all.

The other day I upgraded to 10.10 and Vuescan can no longer see the scanner. So I tried X-Sane and Simplescan and they both say there is no scanner even though it's connected and switched on. So for some reason, Ubuntu 10.10 cannot see the scanner or perhaps the IEEE connection.

Slackware :: Setting Up Scanner In 13.0?

Mar 5, 2010

I'm having problems getting my Canon MP-210 printer/scanner recognized as a scanner device in Slackware 13.0.CUPS setup was a breeze - in less than two seconds it was installed and within 10 more seconds it was printing a test page.Its URI is here, according to CUPS:

usb://Canon/MP210%20series (Printing works flawlessly).My non-privileged user account is a member of the 'wheel', 'scanner', and 'plugdev' groups in /etc/group (among the others recommended by the adduser script. I've tried running xsane as root (Still no devices found) with no success, and the CLI 'scanimage -L' doesn't produce anything either.They just report that there is no configured device.

I've run 'sane-find-scanner' and it reports the following:


found USB scanner (vendor=0x04a9 [Canon], product=0x1721 [MP210 series]) at libusb:001:003 Rebooting and unplugging/plugging in the scanner produces no positive results. /etc/sane.d/dll.conf has the following canon lines in it:


I believe the appropriate entry is the canon630u.

/etc/sane.d/canon630u.conf contains the following:


# Options for the canonusb backend
# Autodetect the Canon CanoScan FB630u

Debian :: Symlinking Scanner/printer Through A LAN?

Aug 21, 2010

I have a laptop which I use for school and I have a scanner/printer that used to be near and I used to scan things and store them in the laptop via the scanner/printer's USB cable. In an attempt to make space to study more comfortably on my desk, I moved the scanner/printer near my gaming computer (on a desk that I don't use). What I want is to scan via my desktop (=gaming computer) and have it directly be stored in my laptop via a symlink and a LAN network. My desktop runs Squeeze and my laptop runs Lenny. One of my weakest points in computing is networks so I would very much appreciate it if someone could guide me through this process.

My laptop has an ethernet port and a wireless card whereas my desktop has a built-in ethernet port, a wireless PCI card as well as another ethernet port (PCI) which I am planning to install soon. For my laptop, I want wireless internet, and the wired connection to be to the desktop for the scanner/printer's purposes.As for the desktop, I want to connect to my internet via a wired ethernet connection and use my extra PCI ethernet port for the scanner/printer situation
