Ubuntu :: Install The Sane-backends Package On Windows?

Apr 1, 2010

Is it possible to install the sane-backends package on Windows?

I need to do this so I can share a scanner connected to a Windows machine across the network for Windows and Linux clients running Xsane.

May 22, 2011

Does anybody know where to find an rpm of sane-frontends?I want to use my auto-document-feed functionality on my scanner using scanadf, which is part of sane-frontends.Otherwise I'd also welcome alternative suggestions for scanadf.

I'm running Suse 11.2 and using a Brother DCP7065DN scanner/printer, which actually comes with stunning drivers and support for Linux.

Debian Configuration :: How To Change Gnome / Mate Backends

Jan 3, 2016

I got some trouble with suspending/hibernation using gnome or mate. None of them can suspend the T450 correcly neither to disk nor to ram. If I run pm-utils from a terminal pm-sleep and pm-hibernate work fine both. So I guess all I need is to change the commands which are run by clicking on the suspend or hibernate button, but how to change what is behind the GUI.

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:
Supported devices [URL]
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.

Ubuntu :: Running Scanner From Virtual Box - Not Supported By Sane

Nov 16, 2010

I have and old scanner, Canoscan 3200F, which is not supported by sane. It will not run in Wine, because there is no Sane support. Does anyone know if I was to install a Windows OS in Virtual Box would that enable me to run it or would I have the same problem as I have with Wine?

Software :: Compile And Install Xmonad Package By Package?

Jul 28, 2011

I originally attempted to compile and install xmonad package by package, and the end result was this:

$ xmonad /home/adx/.xmonad/xmonad-x86_64-linux: executeFile: does not exist (No such file or directory)
X Error of failed request: BadAccess (attempt to access private resource denied) Major opcode of failed request: 2 (X_ChangeWindowAttributes) Serial number of failed request: 7 Current serial number in output stream: 8 I figured I left out a flag on the make file or something, so I tried the slackbuild packages next; however, the same error was present at launch.

Fedora Hardware :: Sane - Does It See My Scanner Or Not?

Mar 28, 2010

I have a Genius CP-SF600 scanner. I have put the fimware in the necessary directory for the backend (/usr/share/sane/gt68xx), and what I run sane-find-scanner I get:

$ 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.

# No SCSI scanners found. If you expected something different, make sure that
# you have loaded a kernel SCSI driver for your SCSI adapter.
found USB scanner (vendor=0x0458, product=0x2021, chip=GT-6816?) at libusb:002:006
# Your USB scanner was (probably) detected. It may or may not be supported by
# SANE. Try scanimage -L and read the backend's manpage.

# Not checking for parallel port scanners.
# Most Scanners connected to the parallel port or other proprietary ports
# can't be detected by this program.
# You may want to run this program as root to find all devices. Once you
# found the scanner devices, be sure to adjust access permissions as
# necessary.

However, when I run scanimage -L I get:
$ 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). So sane sees the scanner, but then scanimage says it can't find any scanners. If I run scanimage -L as root it does seem to find the scanner.. so its a permissions problem somewhere.. I will keep investigating....

OpenSUSE :: Any Changes From 11.1==>11.2 Affecting SANE Support Via USB?

Feb 4, 2010

I've been running 64-bit openSUSE 11.2 since shortly after it's release, on a quad core AMD Phenom based machine, using KDE as the Desktop. I have a USB-attached "multi-function" printer/scanner/etc., which worked fine with XSane under 11.1. On the same machine, with 11.2, I can still get a scan preview. But when I try a full scan, shortly after it starts, the progress bar stops, then XSane complains about an I/O error.

When I update openSUSE versions, if I can, I keep the old version completely intact, on the same machine. This includes the /home partition, I don't overwrite it. Sure it's a good deal more work to copy over the numerous files needed, but if there are any problems with the new software, it's extremely helpful to have a completely intact old environment for reference. I was able to do this, while updating 11.1 ==> 11.2. Booting the old 11.1 system on the same machine, I haven't encountered any scanning problems.

I haven't given a lot of details, because it's the same hardware, that should "in theory", mostly eliminate the hardware as a possible source of the problem. I'm hoping the problem can be resolved by focusing on any changes in SANE support, or XSANE itself, for USB attached scanners. It could be unrelated, but messages such as these are in /var/log/messages on the 11.2 sys:

Feb 3 17:45:03 toe-heaven kernel: [ 5881.313532] usb 3-1: usbfs: interface 0 claimed by usblp while 'xsane' sets config #1
Feb 3 17:45:03 toe-heaven kernel: [ 5881.313560] usb 3-1: usbfs: process 8214 (xsane) did not claim interface 1 before use

If XSane is doing things in the wrong order, I'm wondering if it would be a problem especially for a combined printer/scanner, or would the problem still occur if the printer and scanner were two physically separate devices? I checked and there are similar messages in /var/log/messages with 11.1. But if it is an error in the sequence in which XSane does things, could it somehow cause problems under 11.2, yet not 11.1? I tried to find anything which might be related to USB device handling, which perhaps could interact. I came across messages such as these in 11.2, but not 11.1:

Feb 4 15:15:10 toe-heaven udev-configure-printer: add /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:02.0/usb3/3-1/3-1:1.0/usb/lp1
Feb 4 15:15:10 toe-heaven udev-configure-printer: parent devpath is /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:02.0/usb3/3-1

Is USB printer handling somehow different under 11.2? With a combined printer/scanner, could there be an interaction? I did some experimenting. I kind'a thought a scan preview was just a scan at low res. So I tried to do full scans, starting with the lowest res., and increasing. I was able to do successful full scans at 100 or 150. But from 200 on up, the higher the res., the shorter the time to get an I/O error. I'd normally use 600 or above, to get what I feel is a good looking scan. At 600 the error report is practically immediate. It's almost as if the error only occurs above a certain threshold, of amount of data per unit time. I should mention, although it's a color scanner, I'm scanning a black and white doc., so using that mode of XSane.

Slackware :: Sane Not Reading Dll.conf?

Jul 9, 2010

I'm trying to setup an Epson perfection 4490 photo scanner in Slack 13.1. I've got the appropriate iscan and epkowa driver and firmware. However it is not working: sane-find-scanner produces:Code:found USB scanner (vendor=0x04b8 [EPSON], product=0x0119 [EPSON Scanner]) at libusb:001:004but scanimage -L finds nothing. After battling a lot with dll.conf and epkowa.conf I decided to run strace scanimage -L and to my shock it never tries to read dll.conf, instead it goes straight to read xerox_mfp.conf and does not try to read any other conf file in /etc/sane.dHas anyone come across problems with sane in 13.1 (or 13.0 as I tried this before upgrading with the same results)?

Debian :: Colord-sane Segfault During Boot

Sep 6, 2015

I just saw this message in the syslog and wondered if it could have anything to do with my previous problems with LXDE crashing:

I have read a number of bug reports regarding this issue and it appears to go back about two years. It was supposedly fixed but that does not appear to be the case unless there is something peculiar with my Wheezy 7.8 installation.I just found this on a Ubuntu bug report. It is related to a colord-sane but not necessarily exactly the same as what I am experiencing.This is a libsane bug, not a colord bug. If you want to to work around it, change /etc/colord.conf to have UseSANE=false

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).

Fedora :: Download And Install A Package (zip Package)

Mar 15, 2009

Sometimes i have on some magazines or Internet Zip packages that are the answer of what i am looking for.

Wich tool and how can i do it? c Well, i am in position to say that i had downloaded from Internet or located the package in the Cd or DVD that comes with the magazine.

But now comes the big question. How can i put this package ( install) on my distro ???

Do i have to be a normal user or should it be root or su (superuser) ?

The packages that come with the distro is easy, because i select them and everything is done

As i told before, maybe this is a silly question, but i simple don't know how to install them and i need some of them to leave MS for good.

Ubuntu :: SANE / HPLIP And F300 Hangs With Large Scan Areas

May 5, 2011

SANE + HPLIP 3.11.3a-1 + Tomato v1.28.8754 ND USB Std + Hp Deskjet F380 (F300 series) only works with small scan areas. This error is affecting SANE running on my tomato router, this affects all computers that try to use that scanner, regardless of platform, in fact, it affects scans originating from the router itself. I believe that it could also happen on ubuntu if I had the same configuration as the router, it seems to be an error that would happen on any platform with the same SANE/hplip settings and hardware (HP Deskjet F380). The problem is also related to DPIs, but I can't manage to get one full page with 75 DPI, which is the lowest possible. If I get a small area (around 1/4 of the full glass) it will scan at some times.

If I increase the DPI, it won't scan. I will get an Error during device I/O, even if I try to scan directly from scanimage. I would like to have the scanner function of my AiO printer working, at least to scan the full glass in low resolutions (<=150). I can't load previews as well. I thought it could be a memory problem, since it does scan small areas, but it is not, in fact, the memory usage doesn't increase much during the scan, I even created a 128MB swap partition in my flash drive (was afraid of doing so, since it would wear it quickly, will probably remove now), but it didn't change anything, it still doesn't scan with more than 55% of the router's memory (16MB) free and more than 97% of the swap memory free.

Here are my configuration files:

socket_type = stream

Everything is configured properly, I got the dbus and cups installed since both are required for hplip to work properly. Here are some other files, that shows what happens:

Debian :: Sane - Share Epson Scanner Over Network

Apr 29, 2010

I have a debian server (squeezzy) amd 64, running with an epson BX-300f pluged to USB. And I want to share the scanner over my network. So let's do that, Intalled sane, sane utils, iscan, which I've downloaded from epson drivers and wich include epkowa drivers fro scanner to work..
after that I installed on my system (Ubuntu 9.10) xsane... on console I type:

root@bruno-laptop:/home/bruno# scanimage -L
*** glibc detected *** scanimage: free(): invalid pointer: 0x00be63d0 ***
WARNING: Unhandled message: interface=org.freedesktop.DBus.Introspectable, path=/, member=Introspect

device 'net:' is a Epson Stylus BX300F/TX300F/NX300/ME Office 600F flatbed scanner

I don't know why I find so much things, if i only have one scanner. Then I opened xsane and found the scanner over network. I chose the epson with epkowa drivers I try to scan something but it dont output nothing and sometimes it gives me "end of file reached". I can put whatever config files here if you want to, just ask. One time it worked fine.. but only half of an image...

Debian Hardware :: Sane Scanner Only Detected By Root

Debian Hardware :: SANE Not Working After Upgrading To Squeeze?

Sep 6, 2011

My setup is an HP OfficeJet 4315 All-in-one on a Debian box with the clients using XSANE on Windows boxes.

After upgrading to Squeeze, none of the clients could see the scanner.root could see the scanner from the Debian box.non-root users could not see the scanner from the Debian box.

Obviously, something was wrong with the permissions. After a lot of digging, I found that the /dev entry for the 4315 was owned by root.lp with no world write access.

My solution was to add the saned account to the lp group. I figured that was the most security-conscious way to fix it.

The remote clients can now see the scanner, so everyone is happy.

This may not work for every installation, but for all-in-ones, it probably will.

OS: CentOS 5.6 yesterday i bought a new HP network printer/scanner (OfficeJet Pro 8500). It installed correctly using hplip drivers. I can print and scan without any problem, very nice and fast device. I did some research where the information where the device port is stored in sane, but cannot find anything. I tried to remove my old network device port for my Brother scanner, but did not find the config file where this information is stored. Neither /etc/sane.d/* nor ~/.sane/xsane/* contains this information.

Slackware :: Cups / Sane Server System Requirements

Jul 1, 2011

I have a 2010 model laptop running slackware 13.1, and after setting up a udev rule for my epson rx700 printer/scanner, this laptop can print to the rx700 without problems, and I can scan straight into gimp with xsane... I can even share the printer and scanner over my local lan.however when I pack up my laptop and hit the road, the other folks in the house cannot print or scan over the network anymore, so I tried to get an older desktop we have laying about to be the cups / sane server instead of my laptop.I tried a Dell Dimension 8300, and a Dell Optiplex GX 260. Both have USB 2.0 however, on fresh slackware 13.37 installs, even after the udev rule, neither old computer is successful finding the scanner with sane-find-scanner, although it is listed in output of lsusb.

does anyone know if there is a workaround on these older machines, or have there been some hardware changes in the last 8 years that the machines haven't undergone, and I should give up trying to get one to be cups/sane server for rx700..

Slackware :: Getting Epson CX5000 Scanner Working With Sane?

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:

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).

Software :: Sane Parport Canon N640P Scanner / Getting The Dialog 'No Devices Available'?

Apr 20, 2010

1. Unless root chmod's /dev/parport0 to include o+rw, a user running xsane just gets the dialog 'No devices available'. Should the canon_pp driver be installed as su root, perhaps? CUPS uses the same port for printing without problems. Which library or executable needs to have permissions changed to change to run as root?

2. The N640P has a printer output port built in. As I have only one parallel port, I piggy-back my printer through the scanner. This does not work for xsane in Copy mode: nothing prints until I close xsane and then all I get printed is a stream of binary characters, not an image. I guess the canon_pp driver is holding the port open in such a way that CUPS sees the device as being busy. Any ideas on how to combat that? I am a C programmer and quite happy to help by hacking the code, if I have a start point. It irritates me to have to boot the print server into WinXP just so scanning and copying work without fuss.

Slackware :: Slackware64 /usr/lib /usr/lib64 / Continue Patching All These Makefiles That Have Libdir=/usr/lib Hard Coded To Keep A Sane System?

May 21, 2009

I've never used a 64bit system set up this way. They've been pure 64bit with everything simply in /usr/lib with no /usr/lib64. IIRC That's how Arch used to do it.

My question is, should I continue patching all these makefiles that have libdir=/usr/lib hard coded to keep a sane system? What are the side effects of not putting all the libs in /usr/lib64? These are for the sources that don't use or follow --libdir= and LDFLAGS="-L/usr/lib64".

Can I rm -rf /usr/lib then ln -s /usr/lib64 /usr/lib and still have things work. There are a couple of files in /usr/lib now {codecs/ crda/ libsyslinux.a rpm/ sendmail siconv/ syslinux/ terminfo/ trn/} which came from a stock install.

There are not any 32bit programs I need to run. If I did, that's what KVM is for

PS. I want some Slackware64 Swag!

Red Hat :: Kickstart Install: "This Package Does Not Exist" After Setting Up The Package

I'm updating a working kickstart configuration.Got a good iso from it the last time used.I simply want to add 2 rpms to the installation. So I added the rpms (libganglia & libconfuse) into the ../Server directory. I added those two names to the %packages section in the .cfg file. And I added those two names into two new appropriate lines in the ../Server/repodata/comps.xml file.

I ran "createrepo -g repodata/comps.xml ." from the ../Server (rpms) directory. I then ran my "mkisofs" without issue, and used the resulting .iso. The message I get during installation is "You have specified the package 'libganglia' should be installed. This package does not exist. Would you like to continue or abort your installation?". I've tried several variations of the createrepo command.
