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.
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'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.
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.
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:
Code: # 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 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'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.
Working on a friend's PC, which was previously running XP and got a very nasty virus infection. I convinced him to try Ubuntu, showed him the interface running on my own machine and he was hooked. Backed up all his data to network, completely erased the hard disk and install Ubuntu. Sounds easy, right?
Installed 9.10, it didn't detect the video card and xorg.conf was missing from /etc/X11. After some messing around trying to get it to work, I realised that the sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg command wasn't working properly and didn't produce the menu shown in the screenshots. After some digging I found that this was a bug in 9.10, so to make the job easier, I wiped the drive again and started again on 9.04.
With 9.04, at least the xorg.conf file was there, but had no entries under configured video device. I tried adding "vesa", "via", "openchrome" (all on separate attempts), all to no avail. I retried the dpkg -reconfigure command above. still no menu.
Now several days into this "easy" install, I rolled back to the LTS release (8.04 - hardy) and installed that instead. Still no video card detection, and resolution is obstinately stuck at 800x600. Tried the same string of tests again, and now admitting defeat The relevant output from lspci is: 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT8378 [S3 UniChrome] Integrated Video (rev 01)
The output from xrandr is: Screen 0: minimum 640 x 480, current 800 x 600, maximum 800 x 600 default connected 800x600+0+0 0mm x 0mm 800x600 60.0* 56.0 640x480 60.0
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 22.214.171.124-147.fc13.i686.
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 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...
My current computer has a VGA output on the motherboard and I'm interested in adding a monitor. I have a separate nVidia card which, when installed, seems to default as the primary. Is there any way to have the system use both the VGA on the motherboard and the additional video card? I've seen a lot of suggestions to modify xorg.conf but the file is nowhere to be found on my machine.
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.
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.
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 an Epson perfection V100 Photo scanner. When I open any programit will not detect the scanner. Simply plugging in the scanner and crossing fingers does not work.sane-find-scanner returns the following:

I have an epson stylus sx425w which is a printer/scanner. ubuntu found and installed a driver for me and im able to use the printer fine but for some reason the scanner just isnt working. if i use the simple scan software it says connect a printer and if i press the scan button on the printer and select usb it says connection problem.
i saw a post about this already for ubuntu 10 or 9 and they provided a link for a newly released driver which turned out to be the drive ubuntu installed automatically and that hasnt fixed my problem.
anyone know what the cause could be and how to fix it?
Have an Epson Expression 1640 XL A3 scanner (usb & network interface card). Bus=0002 Device=004 its usb ID is 0x04b8 0x0109 I have never been able to connect the scanner using the network - if anybody can advise, I would be very grateful. Quite happy to use this if usb is going to be a problem The scanner has worked very well through the usb and wask working well with 9.04(32bit). I have bought a new machine and did a fresh install of 9.10 (64bit) and the scanner is not detected.
xsane detects my webcams (vl4:/dev/video*)but no scanner Have run sudo xsane-find-scanner - only the webcams are detected Have edited /etc/sane.d/epson2.conf - added scanner usb ID, and added the lines:- usb /dev/usb/scanner0 usb /dev/usbscanner0 as advised in one of the threads in this forum sudo scanimage -L gave this-
WARNING: Unhandled message: interface=org.freedesktop.DBus.Introspectable, path=/, member=Introspect device `v4l:/dev/video1' is a Noname Creative Labs Webcam Pro Ex virtual device device `v4l:/dev/video0' is a Noname Logitech QuickCam Pro 4000 virtual device
Do I need to select M for these three modules?
the following had [M] - USB Printer support Microtek X6USB scanner support
It looks like the scanner module has not been loaded, and possibly the usbfs yet usb webcam and card readers are accessible. I have tried to keep outputs relevant & short. If I have omitted anything, you would like full results or any other information.
I added myself to the scanner and saned groups, however scanimage -L only detects the device when run as superuser. I think this may be related to [URL].
root@icecream:/home/discord# scanimage -L device 'epson2:/dev/sg0' is a Epson GT-9800 flatbed scanner discord@icecream:~$ 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).
I have a problem here where sane no longer detects my scanner.
Code: lsusb reports Bus 007 Device 002: ID 03f0:5b17 Hewlett-Packard
Code: sane-find-scanner reports: found USB scanner (vendor=0x03f0 [Hewlett-Packard], product=0x5b17 [HP Color LaserJet CM2320fxi MFP]) at libusb:007:002
Code: scanimage -L reports
No scanners were identified. xsane reports no devices detected (I have it in French, "Aucun p'rif'rique disponible"). I get the same when I launch xsane as root, so I doubt it is a usb-rules issue. It used to work; I checked /proc/bus/usb, but that is empty.
Upgraded system so I could store more recorded video. Now system identifies the Hauppauge WinTV PVR-150 card as a scanner. I have the original setup disk from Hauppauge but it is not Linux compatable. Running: Ubuntu 9.04 on: AMD Athlon64 X2 Dual Core Processor 5200+
