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
Just installed Ubuntu Netbook Remix 10.04 on my Acer ao532h netbook.I did a clean install, but I had been running UNR 9.10 for some time without a hitch. The new version fixed a slight bug that had made it necessary to tinker with the wifi adapter in the old version, and also seems to boot faster as advertised. However, there is one slight problem with the new version: when I attempt to engage visual effects in the appearance control panel (something which worked in the old version), the options are grayed out, as if the video driver is not installed. When I go to the hardware drivers panel, it doesn't detect any drivers to install. As far as I can remember, I didn't have to install any drivers for the GMA 3150 graphics card in the old version of UNR.
I had dual screen config (large desktop) going on 11.2 with proprietary nvidia driver without problems. After upgrade to 11.3 this didin't work. I was not able to find a way to configure nouveau drivers, and it was stuck in the 'twinview' mode, so decided to install binary nvidia instead (the 'hard way'). Took me a while to figure out 'nomodeset' thing, but in the end drivers were installed successfully. The problem now is that only monitor displays anything, and I can't find the nvidia control panel to activate second monitor and extend the desktop there.
Used to be able to install nvidia control panel easily in 11.2 with one-click install, but for 11.3 the page says that the one-click install buttons aren't ready yet (SDB:NVIDIA drivers - openSUSE) So my question is 'how to get dual screen going and extend my desktop to second screen using 11.3 and nvidia 210 card' ? And I don't care whether it's nouveau or proprietary drivers, as long as it's easy to configure and it works.
Looking over the sane project for the epson GT-S50 scanner I see it lists requires DFSG non-free esci-interpreter-gt-s80 Does anybody know if one is writing their own scripts with bash and scanimage if that requirement of DFSG is still required under ubuntu (Karmic or lucid)????
I am running ubuntu 10.04. I have an Epson Wprkforce 310 4 in 1. Connection is USB. I can print. I have searched for proper drivers for scanner and fax. I have found nothing for fax. I have found and installed at one time or another the following scanner drivers:
The 1st 3 installed but nothing happened. When I installed the 4th, I got a message telling me about the scan app I have installed(default with ubuntu install). Hope welled up inside. When I opened the scan app, it said it could not find a scanner. WF 310 was on hoping for a driver.
I have downloaded successfully the drivers for the printer component of the MX330. The scanner drivers are downloaded,but I am unable to locate the working part of the .sh file so that I can open it. I have the .sh file in text, but do not know how to utilize it
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.
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] Read: [URl] Another story of purchasing a "complete"ly supported scanner. [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.

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.
Very easy to get the printer working via wifi on this printer/scanner under Wheezy. But oh the scanner! XSane doesn't see it via wifi- worked ok on USB. Problem could be with Xsane or CUPS? URL....One shows various useful tips under one roof: I can now access the scanner using xsane on the command line; but xsane cannot find the scanner when launched normally]
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?
I have been using ubuntu for quite a long time, and for the first time, I am now unable to set nvidia drivers to work. I have just install ubuntu 9.10 amd64 on an AMD 64 athlong X2 with a GEForce 6500 nvidia card.
The only reason I need the proprietary drivers is to use two monitors.
I am going crazy, I have tested everything I have found on the web. I have tried all the nvidia drivers version, I have tried envyng, ... but nvidia do not work!!
I am trying Xinerama with nv, but it does not work either!!!
Here is my xorg.conf file in which I have tried to use nv driver to set dual monitor. X fails to load and it says that screen 0 is deleted, that devices are found but there are no matches in the config file. Any clue?
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 192.168.0.10. 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:
192.168.0.0/24 this line in /etc/services:
sane-port 6566/tcp #SANE network scanner daemon & this line in /etc/inetc.conf:
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?
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).
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, so a few weeks back my 6 year old daughter wanted to scan a picture she had made for a school project, I hadn't used my AGFA snapscan e20 for years, Infact it had been in a box for more than 5 years.
anyhoo I thought I'd give it a go and with some doubt plugged it in. Much to my joy and my daughters joy it just worked, there was life in the old dog still So two or three weeks on after I've installed a kernel update as well as others on my daughters Dell Optiplex GX620 Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (2.6.32-30-generic #59-Ubuntu SMP), my multi operating system literate 6 year old has drawn another master piece and popped it in the scanner only to recive the following error from simple-scan
What I'd like to know is, 1, How do I remove the entry for the scanner in simple-scan (ahh the old reinstall never fails) 2, why am I getting nothing back from my tail 3,Why did it break in the first place? 4, how to fix it (if not with a reinstall)
Please help as I don't want to break the "My Dad can fix anything" illusion my daughter has just yet.
I'm posting here because I'm having trouble setting up by HP PSC 1315 printer scanner copier machine. I believe I have the proper drivers already installed. However, nothing happens when I try printing a test page. Also when I try printing a web page, it goes through the motions. Then I get an error message saying the computer can't recognize the printer.
I'm trying to connect my HP PSC 1315 printer scanner copier to my laptop, where I'm using Ubuntu Hardy. I checked my synaptic package manager. It appears I have HLIP and the other drivers already installed. However, I'm unable to print a thing. Nothing happens when I try printing a test page. When I try to print a regular web page, I get an error message saying the psc 1310 is not connected.
About ten days ago, I bought multifunctional printer Canon I-sensys MF4430. I did it after I saw there are linux drivers - rpm drivers. But, unfortunately, after buying and installing these package, I saw that drvers given on "Canon" download page are just for printer to work. And it works. But, scanner do not work! Can anybody tell me how to enable scanner which can not be recognized by opensuse 11.4 YaST?Actually this happens:when I click YaST(root password)/Hardware/Scanner autodetection does not recognize scanner. After I click Other -> Restart detection , system recognizes my scanner, but says that drivers are not configured.They are missing.
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.
