i m relative new for ubuntu as a technical user, and i m facing problem in installing HP Scanjet N8420, i searched many forums but i m unable to get success on it, i already tried the given code below it works for Canon scanner lide 110, but doesn't works for HP ScanJet N8420.
This weekend I installed Ubuntu 10.10 and most everything works well, but it seems that there is no support for my scanner, an HP Scanjet G4010. Both lsusb and sane-find-scanner report the scanner, and I've changed the permissions of the appropriate USB device, but scanimage -L returns "no scanners were identified" and the HPLIP Toolbox cannot find the scanner. Additionally, the Sane site states that it's unsupported. So I'm just posting here as the final resort to see if there is anyone who has a fix or who has been able to get this scanner working

I have a system which has been running 8.10 for two years (and am preparing to rebuild). Yesterday I thought to reboot it and am now stuck in a boot-loop getting the "not responding" x.xxxxxx error.
I made no changes prior to the reboot (just felt it was time) other than moving documents off the main drive onto a spare (preparing for the rebuild).
I have tried booting into several of the previous kernels and I ran memtest (flying colors). I keep getting the same error.
I have now built a 10.04 system for this machine. The old 8.10 drive seems to be in perfect order and I was able to pull various files from it.
I thought this would be the end of it but if I boot this new machine with my HP scanner attached via USB (any port) I get the boot-loop as in 8.10.
Again no changes were made to the 8.10 build prior to yesterday's reboot, and that scanner has been attached for more than two years (and working with fair reliability). I have had to alter its USB port or (inclusive) power-cycle it for Ubuntu to find it, but I had to do this when it was attached to an XP machine and so thought nothing of it.
Why has (presumably) the kernel driver suddenly crapped its pants?
Oh, and for the doubters I was able to boot into 10.04, open x-sane (which I prefer over Simple), locate the scanner (after power-cycling it), and scan an image. I just had to attach the scanner to the machine after the kernel loaded (at the login screen).
I am not a newbie, but not especially knowledgeable (working on it) I am using Ubuntu 10.10 on an HP Pavilion dv7 'Entertainment PC' laptop. (I know, I know... but HP has the 'PC' nomenclature printed on the case.) 4 GB ram, AMD Turion X2 2000mhz, '17" screen', 750GB hard drive space, DVD-CD RW drive. I have an HP ScanJet 8250 linked by USB 2.0, running either Sane or X-Sane and the ADF is driving me IN-sane (LOL)
The scanner works wonderful in flatbed mode, but when I try and use the ADF it goes through the motions until the dialog reports that receiving data has commenced. At that point the screen on the scanner reports error 15. The auto feed never really starts. I have tested the scanner in Vista (gasp-wheeze) and the ADF works perfectly there, with HP's software.
Just found out that my old parallel port scanner will work with Linux (SANE told me so...). Since I have a laptop hp compaq nx9010 (Ubuntu 10.10) equipped with a parallel port I thought maybe I could take that into use. Question is: How? And do I have to have a printer connected to the scanner too?
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.
Whenever I try to scan documents (OpenSuse 11.1) with any of the available tools (such as scanlite, kooka, or xsane), I can only scan in color. Moreover, the result is basically unusable. I shows a turquoise background of differing intensity at various places. Why isn't there a possibility to scan black and white, grayscale, etc.? Seems like scanning still is a problem in Linux. I really don't want to have to "fall back" to M$-Windows for scanning, but that seems to be the only solution at the moment
Is there a way to get this scanner to work o.k. in Debian Squeeze? I used it under Windoes/XP but had to get rid of that OS because of a brand-new Lenovo PC. Vista does not support TWAIN drivers anymore as far as I know, so it looks that I am "sunk" unless...
Request help with scanjet 3500c operation. xSane .996 in Ubuntu sees scanjet and scans. As soon as scan completes, the xSane windows(2) disappears and there are no copies in the intended save folder in Documents. Upon original attempt, the xsane windows had an additional third "Preview" window which has not returned since that first scan attempt?
One is not a computer guru by any imagination!
Info; the scanjet worked very well on the other "doze OS" and seems now, does not in the Ubuntu OS. In Doze, there was also a program for a HP PhotoSmart 3200 running and when I added the scanjet it might have been happy with that driver. Currently I do not have access to the driver disc for the 3200 with me. Too, it now takes ~45+ seconds for the scanjet to begin as compared to 2 - 3 seconds on doze.
Some internet self help searching seems to suggest the xSane 1.0.18 is the driver choice to use with the HP 3500c scanjet. When attempting to download, an archive "Failed" notice appears. I am a bit lost from here.
how to possible to configure the buttons on my scanner (HP Scanjet 3300C - it's an old one) to actually perform the tasks they're intended to do. The scanner itself works absolutely perfect despite its age (over a decade old).. however it has two physical buttons with a scanner and a printer icon on it. Now I don't particularly care much for the scan button, but it would be awesome if the print button automatically send whatever it's scanning to the printer as soon as it's done.
The only two things I could find that seem to be written with the idea to fulfill this role are KScannerButtons and scanbuttond. Both haven't received an update in years (2006 and 2007) and only seem to be good for spitting out an error. I also tried installing hp-lib, but it doesn't even recognize the printer (I'm guessing HP doesn't support hardware that old). Not sure if it would get me further even it was recognized.
Trying to install Ubuntu (tried several releases) on HP Pavillion Pentium 4 Proccessor 515 2.93 Gig 1M L2 cache 533mhz 90nm . Have 1 gig ram and 1Tb hd. Hangs on initial install screen for ever. Tried versions from 8.10 (origional disk) to 11.01. Machine works perfectly on Windows XP but who wants that? The model is pavillion 1000 system number pl397aa.
I have an apparently stable installation of Xubuntu that I've hand-tweaked in a few ways. I'd like to be able to reinstall this system verbatim on this machine should a disk crash happen, etc.Is there a "standard" method to create an install and/or total-backup CD that would be an instantiation of the currently-installed-and-modified system?
I am installing Ubuntu Server 10.10 on and old Dell Laptop. The network connection is an Xircom PCMCIA card.During install, the computer sees and interacts via the network just fine. For example, I can ping the gateway. Also, the command "lspcmcia" works and show the Xircom card.When I reboot, however, there is no network access, and the "lspcmcia" command is not there. When I try "lspcmcia" the OS helpfully tells me that I can "apt-get" pcmciautils, but, without network access, that fails.I tried adding the install cdrom to apt using "apt-cdrom" and then tried to "apt-get" pcmciautils and it got further, installing some dependencies, but acted like it still was unable to locate the pcmciautils package.
I'm an OpenSuse user wanting to try something different.Ubuntu Studios caught my attention. I had a brief play with an older version a while ago and liked whatI saw.Im having problems installing though.I've downloaded the 32bit version from the studio website link, and burnt the DVD.However the install always fails at the same stage: Select and install software.The error message is not specific, and no more information is given other than the step has failed.Any ideas what could be causing this? Ive tried to burn the DVD several times, on 2 different machines, but no luck so far.
Installing Ubuntu 10.10 desktop.on a Highpoint rocketraid 2642.Installing Ubuntu, it does not find the drive?How do I install the drivers to install and boot after the installation from the raid drives?
What is the easiest and/or safest way to migrate my Wubi 10.04 install to a full install? Currently, my Dell XPS M1530 is currently dual-booting Ubuntu 10.04 LTS and Windows Vista Home Premium, and I've decided after using Windows a total of around 4 hours over the past 6 months that I can probably let it go. So, I don't need Windows anymore and I believe I'm ready for a full install of Ubuntu. Though, I probably will wait for 11.04 to come out first.
A few ways I've thought of already are: 1) Find an external hard drive to put the Wubi files on. 2) Upload files to an storage website. 3) Temporarily put the Wubi files onto another computer (Windows). All these meaning I would then wipe my harddrive and install Ubuntu from a CD. And by "files", I mean Documents, Pictures, Downloads, etc.
EDIT: deleting all my applications, because OpenOffice.org won't reinstall on my computer due to dependency issues while attempting to install LibreOffice. So a fresh install would be nice.
I have been running ONLY linux (ubuntu) on my computer for years now. However, a friend sucked me back into the world of MMO's (angry fist @ RIFT). So, I decided to pick up a new disc, slap windows 7 on it and now want to dual boot.Basically I had to do some disc juggling to get windows to play nice. So my windows drive is now first, then my Ubuntu drive second.Its been a while so I'm wondering how involved / what would be the steps to get grub2 to chainload into windows7 (in my head I want to say I'm going to boot into the live cd, mount the windows disc and reinstall the loader to the windows drive since its the first disc in the chain?)
I installed Kubuntu-Desktop on Ubuntu & now my Ubuntu installation is on the 2nd (data)partition! It's hard to believe but I'm looking at it from a live cd and that's what looks like happened.For right now, my main goal is to get Ubuntu back.Should I make the 2nd partition bootable so I have a dual-boot option at startup? Should I make the 2nd partition bootable & not the first? Can I uninstall Kubuntu somehow & have things return to how they were?I thought I was just loading an alternative sassion to Gnome.I thought that the only thing I said yes to was to use the KDE boot manager (or whatever).
I've installed 11.04 64bit several times, and here's what happens. On install and reboot,seems to work fine. Then on 2nd boot, 2 things:1) grub has changed, the count-down counter is gone.2) will not boot in normal mode, I have to boot in reduced graphics mode, and even then only boots about 50% of the time, and then hangs on shut down.Help! I'm running 10.10, and it's got problems on my new laptop too, and was hoping 11.04 would get me where I need to be. I do NOT want to go back to windows.Some more info:Dell Vostro 3550, with Intel i3, and Radeon discrete graphics.3GB DRAM
I have a setup with 3 hard drives. The first hard drive has windows 7 and is a solid state, for my fast computing needs. The second hard drive has another copy of windows 7 on one partition and Ubuntu 11.04 on another (and SWAP space).The third hard drive is just storage.Grub is installed on the first(SSD) hard drive, as well as the MBR (master boot record) for the two windows installs (select win7 in grub, then it lets me select which windows install to boot).Now I want to get rid of my solid state drive, and just run from the second hard drive with dual boot.How can I install a new MBR on the second hard drive without having to re-install both OS's?I've tried removing the first hard drive and using bootrec.exe to re-write the MBR and it will not work.I can install grub, and it boots to ubuntu but when I try windows 7 it says there is no MBR.
During the installation, I kept getting tons of errors. Finally something came up saying that I had to abort the installation and it did some stuff. I tried running an application, but I got an error. So I restarted the system.
The normal screen came up where I had to choose the Ubuntu stuff (I'm new to Ubuntu) in the box. I noticed that it had gone to 8.10... which I had earlier before installing 9.04, which went great. So I chose the first on and the system failed to start. I rebooted and tried all the other options, but they all had errors. Now I'm booted to Windows.
I installed Ubuntu from a CD I created. But it is now outdated because it is 8.10, and I have already upgraded to 9.04. 9.04 to 9.10 is where stuff went wrong.
