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.
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.
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 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.
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 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'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.
Have Karmic 9.10 ,Changed from Epson RX595 all in 1 (uses a ton of ink)Got the Lexmark Pro 805 3 in 1 because it says it supports Linux and the ink cartridge only cost $5 downloaded drivers and printer works but using Xsane Image Scanner error reports
'Lexmark_1_0_0:libsub/001/009': Device busy Using Image Scan - reports Could not send command to scanner Check the scanner status. The RX595's scanner drivers had to been manually instatlled,, in the Printer box the Lexmark shows available..
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 184.108.40.206-147.fc13.i686.
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:
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...
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.
After a successful install of the MFC-J4420DW printer and scanner using Brother's install utility, I am experience severe battery drain and xsane freezes (total system lockup, requiring using CONFIG_MAGIC_SYSRQ keyboard command REISUB or hard reset).
The Brother support page and utility/drivers are found here: URl....My laptop is the HP Elitebook 8540W and I am running Debian 8 using LVM, separate partitions for /home, /var, /temp, /swap, and /. I have looked at logs in /var/log. kern.log, daemon.log, messages and dmesg, but have not found any relevant info ...
I purged all drivers/packages and tried a manual install using each deb package, but ran into some permission errors, so I purged again. I also purged xsane and reinstalled it, then did a complete printer reinstall using the brother Driver Install Tool.The tool works great, full functionality for the MFC-J4420DW. But I know I can't live with the power drain, and I would really prefer to use Gimp and the xsane plugin rather than simple scan ..
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 the scanner HP Scanjet 2400 installed on a machine with K/Ubuntu 10.10 and I use the software Simple Scan to scan image. Problem: The image scanned by this scanner comes with a inversion of colors (what was supposed to be orange is blue ; the white sheet of paper that I've put inside it was not in the blank color when I scanned it too)... My Question: Is this a configuration problem (I did not configured this scanner at any way, so it's working by the Ubuntu drivers itself without my intervention)? Is there any way to solve it?
I am trying to use sane to acces a scanner. The system is Debian Squeeze AMD64 architechture.The scanner is Brother DCP-J715W, over a network connection. I have installed the drivers from Brother, succesfully.
I can find the scanner with: $ scanimage -L device `brother3:net1;dev0' is a Brother DCP-J715W Brother
Ubuntu 10.04, xsane 0.996, Brother MFC 240c scanner.I just finished writing a long dissertation on my problem with this scanning environment (which I will spare you). In a nutshell the resulting image, when printed, is smaller than the original document. In writing my dissertation for this post I determined that the cause of the issue is that xsane believes I am scanning an 8.5 x 14 inch document when I am in fact scanning an 8.5 x 11 letter. So the question is... can I change the size to 8.5 x 11? and if so, how? I have not found anything in the xsane Preferences.
I have ubuntu 10.04.1 and a H.P.psc 1311 all-in-one printer scanner.Printer works ok but when trying to scan,with xsane,it goes through the scanning process and an image of the document comes up on the screen.
When I try to save this image to desktop or file/folder whatever I get the message; "Child Process Error. Failed to execute OCR command:GOCR:no such file or directory."
I was able to get my Epson Stylus NX510 printer up and running (after much issue), but I can't get the scanner working. I'm on a laptop, and the printer/scanner is wifi enabled and broadcasts with its own IP address. I can print with no problem, but xsane and simple scan don't recognize the scanner. I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx.
I have an Acer Aspire One Netbook, and I have the Ubuntu 9.10 Netbook Remix installed. I have tried using Cheese to capture video and it captures maybe 2 seconds of movement, then goes black and/or the image freezes. I can take photos just fine, but video capture seems to be impossible. Any help?
