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
usb 0x04a9 0x2204

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.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Setting Up Epson Stylus SX420W Printer / Scanner

Mar 17, 2011

I am trying to set up my Epson Stylus SX420W printer (via USB) on a fresh install of 11.4. I have found a driver called 'epson-inkjet-printer-nx420-1.0.0-1lsb3.2.x86_64.rpm', which I guess is right for my Intel Core i5-system on the Avasys-site that Epson refers to for Linux drivers.

I have downloaded the driver and installed it via Right-Click -> Open With -> Install/Remove Software, which seemed to go well. When I open Yast -> Hardware -> Printer -> Add, my printer is found all right, but 'No matching driver found'. Iam quite new to Linux.

Ubuntu Networking :: Setting Up Epson SX515W Wireless Printer/Scanner?

Feb 7, 2010

I've used windows all of my life, and never really looked at Linux, so thought it would be a good time to see outside of the box! I installed Ubuntu 9.10 a couple of weeks ago after reading a few Linux Newbie books and deciding it would be the best distro for me. Being completely new with Linux it's proving difficult doing certain things which I would have done with a couple of clicks in Windows, however I've managed to get past some of the problems after hours of searching and messing about. I managed to set my wireless network up, and with a great struggle my wireless printer using cups- which now seems to be printing fine over the network, its IP is However even after reading lots of info and tutorials on Forums & Blogs nothing seems to work regards to my scanner (which is an all-in-one printer SX515W).

The information is completely overwhelming. I've been told to use iscan with the network plugin which I downloaded from [URL] after installing and running image scan or xscan the printer would scan for a couple of seconds and then it would stop, and I'd have to reset my printer. I read the documents supplied, blogs, and forums telling me to do certain things such as:


sudo gedit /etc/sane.d/epkowa.conf
add "net 1865"
sudo gedit /etc/sane.d/dll.conf


Like I said, being new to Linux I'm completely lost with what I'm doing or what I should be listing here! This is my last resort really, if I still can't get this thing working I may just give up because it's so stressfull!

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).

Slackware :: Scanner Not Recognized On Epson Workforce 633 With 13.37 32-bit?

May 17, 2011

I had a similar problem on 13.1, but was solved by this forum by copying 80-sane.rules to /etc/udev/rules.d/ . With 13.37 the same trick doesn't work. Here is my scanimage output:


root@Shuttle:/home/tfrei# 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). Here is my sane-find-scanner output:


root@Shuttle:/home/tfrei# 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.

Slackware :: Getting Epson CX5000 Scanner Working With Sane?

Mar 30, 2010

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
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).

Slackware :: Scanner Permission - Epson Workforce 630 On 32bit 13.1

Jan 27, 2011

I've done some investigating on the threads, but none of the normal fixes for this permission problem work. I've added myself to the scanner and lp groups. I've also added the right device code to the epson configuration file under /etc/sane.d/ . Scanner is recognized and works under root.

When I "scanimage >somefile" in the console I get a permission error when I'm a regular user; when I do the same under root, it works. Likewise, my graphical scan frontends report that they cannot find the scanner when I am a regular user. I see alien bob had an old workaround at [url] but I don't think 13.1 has hotplug set up the same way anymore.

Slackware :: 13.37 And EPSON Stylus TX120 Scanner Not Found

May 18, 2011

I'm trying to set up my EPSON Stylus TX120 multifunction, and i've successfully installed the printer, and for the scanner i followd the instructions from avasys page: installed iscan-data and iscan (core) compiling them from source with no problems using --prefix=/usr in both packages, but when i run sane-find-scanner no scanner is found. If i try using scanimage -L only my webcam is listed, so, is there anything else i have to do in order to get my scanner detected in slack 13.37? I've run both commands as root, by the way.

Slackware :: User Permissions/groups To Access USB Scanner?

Jan 17, 2010

Slackware 13 64 bit Hp Photosmart c4280 USB (All-in-one)

- Printer successfully configured using CUPS

- Scanner only works when I am Root.

- When trying to access scanner as user it says there is no scanner attached.

What should be the groups for this user in order to access the scanner? Actually, they are: haldaemon, disk, audio, video, cdrom, plugdev, power, scanner, lp. Below are the outputs for sane-find-scanner (as both root and user), although, since the scanner works well under root, I am almost sure it is a problem with setting permissions and groups.


# sane-find-scanner
# sane-find-scanner will now attempt to detect your scanner. If the

Slackware :: Perfection V300 Photo USB Scanner - Fails Citing 'not Enough Space For Operation'

Jul 10, 2011

I've installed the epkowa backend for the V300 scanner. Communications from Chuck56 and Alien Bob were helpful. The core, data, and esci-interpreter packages are installed, epkowa.conf and dll.conf seem properly configured. sand-find-scanner, lsusb, scanimage -L all report correctly. xsane works normally, and iscan initializes, and produces a preview image. scan however fails citing 'not enough space for operation,' although GBs are available. When iscan is closed, these errors are reported:

libpng warning: Application was compiled with png.h from libpng-1.2.8
libpng warning: Application is running with png.c from libpng-1.4.5
libpng warning: Incompatible libpng version in application and library

My system is running Slackware v. 13.37, Linux v.

Hardware :: Getting Canon 8800F Scanner Working / No Other Scanner Found?

Sep 23, 2010

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

I have downloaded the pixma drivers and have compiled the command line program, but it can't find the scanner.

lsusb returns a Canon scanner Bus 001 Device 005: ID 04a9:1901 Canon, Inc.

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.

My system is running Linux Mint 7, ia64 kernel 2.6.28-11-generic

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.

Slackware :: Setting Up USB For PIC-programming?

Mar 9, 2010

reading through the documentation for pk2cmd, required for using the PICkit2 programmer. I aim to install using the source, and thus libusb-dev is needed. The docs says that the runtime is usually included with the distro but the dev-part is not. Well, to be on the safe side, I downloaded the source for libusb (0.1.12), which in turn should contain libusb-dev.One step down, a few more to go. pk2cmd should be pretty straightforward to compile, but ...

Now I am asked to set up USB so that it can be used by users other than root. A document is filled to the brim with instruction for cases old and new. It makes my head spin and that's why I am asking. The programmer shows up fine with lsusb,I see it as/dev/bus/usb/001/006So, basically, as I understand it, the device need the proper rights to be used by a regular user. But how do I do that?

Slackware :: Setting Up System To Act As VNC?

Nov 26, 2010

I'm trying to set up my system to act as a vnc so I can access it remotely via a vnc viewer on my android phone. I've never tried this before but from what I've found online, with KDE4 a lot of the usual vnc server programs won't work correctly. Anyone have any tips for getting it to work? It doesn't necessarily have to be vnc. If there's an alternative method to remote control of a computer, that will work too.

Slackware :: Setting The JAVA_HOME Variable ?

Jan 10, 2009

I have problems with setting my JAVA_HOME variable. I am using Slackware 12.0, bash shell. This is a question for the 'Linux Newbie' forum (not slackware-specific).

I have set JAVA_HOME in my /etc/profile, like this:

But when I login in with my user name and type env on the command line, I get for JAVA_HOME the following:

Also, in my /etc/profile I have put the path to my java in the PATH variable, like this:

And when I type env when I login, then the PATH variable contains correctly the path to the jdk (as I have put it into /etc/profile).

I expect that after I have set everything as I want in /etc/profile, and restart the computer then what I have set will be relevant and when I login and type env, I will get values to the variables equal to those I have set in /etc/profile. Why it does not happen?

I have particularly a problem with a Java application, which I want to run. When I type ant, I get:
error: JAVA_HOME is not defined correctly. We cannot execute /usr/lib/java/bin/java.

Slackware :: Setting Up HP Deskjet D2660 In 13.0?

Sep 12, 2010

I tried setting up my printer, HP Deskkjet D2660, using CUPS. I enabled the CUPS service and configure the printer through it. But when I try to test print, my printer wont print.
Now, i tried to look at the net for possible answer and somewhere, I read that my printer needs the newer version of hplip than the one included with the default slackware 13.0 install.

1. Do i really need to update hplip just to make my printer work? Do anyone uses the same printer model and make it work without updating the said package?

2. If i really have to update it, is there any Slackbuild script I can use to make the hplip-3.10.6.tar.gz into slackware package? I prefer creating package than installing using make.
