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.

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:

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 :: Can't Get The Scanner Recognized By Xsane ?

Mar 4, 2010

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.......

Ubuntu :: New Scanner Not Recognized By Xsane / Sort It?

Dec 2, 2010

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)

Ubuntu :: Stop Scanner Launching Xsane?

Dec 12, 2010

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.

Ubuntu :: Scanner Not Detected By Xsane But Video Card Is?

May 7, 2010

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.

Ubuntu :: Xsane Image Scanner Freezes While Scanning?

Nov 19, 2010

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:

# 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.

Fedora Hardware :: SCSI Scanner Not Detected By XSane?

Mar 11, 2011

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:

HP 5610 all in one device scanner settings please. The printer works fine, I have a problem getting the Scanner to work.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Epson DX8400 Scanner Driver With 9.10 - When Run XSane - Replies - There Is No Available Device

Jan 15, 2010

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...

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.

Slackware ::When Ran XSane It Could Not Find The Device?

Jan 29, 2010

I have the 64 bit 13.0 version installed. I have an hp f4440 all-in-one printer installed and connected via usb. I downloaded and installed the new hplip 3.9.12 after removing the older hplip 3.9.4 version. I used CUPS to install and setup the printer. No problems, I let it search and it found the printer right away. When I ran XSane it could not find the device. I clicked help and it gave some steps. The first being to try as root. I opened a root terminal and entered xsane, it found and opened after a warning about running it as root. I checked and my user name and root are entered in the scan group.

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

Ubuntu :: LibUSB Not Available To Sane Find Scanner

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]

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.

Hardware :: Find Scanner - Yes / Scanimage - No

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?

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 Installation :: XSane Stopped Working - No Device Detected

Mar 29, 2010

Recently xsane has stopped detecting my MFP (HP Deskjet F2280). My setup has not had any hardware changes and the only software changes in that time have been the periodic Synaptic updates. Before this hiccup all had been well for over a year. If I run xsane it thinks a while (10 sec?) and tells me in a little panel no devices were detected. If I run lsusb, it finds the device, but after all it is a printer/scanner and the printing function continues to be OK so this is not a surprise.

I do not know enough to understand all the lsusb output to know if anything is amiss in the detail. What is it that xsane needs so that it detects the device as a scanner? Is there a file or specific stuff in a file which I could get from an old backup or edit (carefully!) by hand? I don't need the scanning function often enough to pin down what might have done the mischief.
