Ubuntu :: Get XSane To Recognize Ethernet Attached Scanner/printer?
Jan 30, 2011
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 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.
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 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 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'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.
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.
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...
I've bought a HP Photosmart printer, HP Photosmart wireless e-All-in-One printer - B110a and i've got a problem installing it properly. I'm using Debian 6.0 Squeeze. When i connect the printer, Debian doesn't recognize my printer as the Photosmart B109 printer for unknown reason. When i go to the site of HP and search for a driver, it directs me to this site:I've downloaded that latest hplip file as a .run file and installed it. My printer is recognized proparly, but when i try to print a colored image, it comes out black/white. Something is not crrect. Does anyone recognize this problem with this type HP printer?
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.
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.

How can I find a MAC of hardware attached via ethernet cable? I have been working nicely with an industrial scanner that is controlled by a Linux PC via an ethernet cable, but the hard drive has died I need to get it working again. The problem is that the main PCB has a Realtek RTL8019AS ethernet controller chip: [URL] which I believe is used in the most basic way possible, applied straight off-the-shelf and unconfigured. To utilise the chip ARP commands are used to assign an IP address to the chips MAC address e.g. something like:
arp -s 192.168.2.5 00-05-a4-00-a8-f8
Unfortunately the actual MAC address was lost along with the HD Th only thing I could have a reasonable guess at is that the chip will have a default subnet of 255.255.0.0 or 255.255.255.0
I have 2 desktop PC's both running 10.4, both connect to internet thro a wireless router. One PC has a printer attached and I would like to be able to print from the PC without the printer attached, what is the easiest way to achieve this?
Having had an old machine running SMEServer for some time, I've decided it doesn't suit my needs and I've gone the Ubuntu Server 10.04 root. I'm having trouble connecting to a HP LaserJet 5P attached to the parallel port of the server. I had no trouble connecting to it when the server was running SMEServer, however, as this distro is aimed at Windows clients, the printer was configured as a Samba share.
In the new 10.04 configuration, I do not have Samba installed as I have no need for it. I'm exclusively Linux based (Ubuntu 10.04 desktop). Surely I do not have to install Samba in order to print?
I have an Epson RX610 printer attached to the USB port on my Thomson TG782T router.Works fine for our 4 PCs and laptops whilst running Windows XP.I don't seem to be able to add the printer under Ubuntu.I've tried all the addresses mentioned in the Active Network Connections.Ubuntu goes off an searches but doesn't find the printer (yes, it is switched on!)What address should I give it as a network printer?
I am currently trying to install Debian Wheezy 7.6 x86_64 on an Intel Server System R2224GZ4GC4, but the Installer doesn’t recognise any of the devices attached to the onboard SATA controller.
Debian Version Debian Wheezy 7.6 x86_64
Hardware used Server: Intel Server System R2224GZ4GC4 Motherboard: Intel S2600GZ4 Onboard SATA Controller: Intel Patsburg 4-Port SATA Storage Control Unit (rev 06) Device on Port 0: Samsung 840 Pro Series SSD Device on Port 1: Samsung 840 Pro Series SSD Device on Port 2: Samsung 840 Pro Series SSD Device on Port 3: Intel 510 Series SSD
While the onboard SATA controller does support so-called “fake RAID,” this ‘feature’ has been disabled (i.e., the BIOS setting “SAS/SATA Capable Controller” is set to “INTEL(R) RSTe”). This is confirmed by the controller during the boot-up URL...Weirdly enough, the Intel 510 Series SSD contains an old system (Debian Squeeze 6.0, Kernel 2.6.35-5-amd64), which can boot and which does recognise all SSDs.
Remedies tried * I’ve compiled the list of SCSI, SAS and block device related modules that the Squeeze-System, which recognises the SSDs, used and manually loaded these modules during the install process.* I’ve tried to rescan the SCSI bus by:
Code: Select allfor host in /sys/class/scsi_host/*; do echo "- - -" > $host/scan; done* I’ve tried to remove all disks, save for the Intel 510 Serives SSD.* I’ve tried all of the above combined.
I have a laptop running Ubuntu 10.04 and my basement computer running Windows 7. I want to be able to access files on on both computers from either. I also want to be able to print from my laptop to the printer attached to the basement computer. I finally got printing working. Then I tackled the filesharing. I finally get filesharing working and now, I can't get printing working again, even though I've gone back to the version of smb.conf that I had when I was able to print. So here is what I've got.

When I look at my printer properties in Ubuntu I see the status: Idle - Unable to connect to CIFS host after (tried 3 times) Cups Error Log When I look at the Printer Error Log, I see: (partial) Printer log extract.txt I can ping the IP address of the windows box 192.168.0.5, but when I try to ping the name owner-pc it fails. This would lead me to beleive that the there is a name resolution problem.
I am having some trouble getting one PC (Windows XP) to see the printer attached to the other PC (Ubuntu). I went to System > Administration > Printing in Ubuntu and did the following: Checked the box next to "Publish shared printers connected to this system" Checked "Enabled", "Accepting jobs", and "Shared" in the properties of the printer. I have an HP Deskjet 5650. Is there anything else I need to be doing?
Want to access a printer attached to a windows 7 server. What I did was the following: 1. Installed samba-common, samba-client & samba-winbind. 2. Included Samba & Samba Client as Trusted Services in the Firewall with system-config-firewall. 3. SELinux is Disabled (in System Default Enforcing Mode). 4. Shared the printer in the Windows 7 server. Other Windows hosts in the LAN can print successfully.
In system-config-printer, I selected Add Printer -> Windows Printer via SAMBA -> Browse... The SMB Browser successfully found the Share and the Host, but won't show the printer. Am I missing something here? The samba wiki mentions that I also need to change some windows registries in this page: [URL].... Do I really need to do this? I don't want to needlessly mess with windows registry
I am delving into the world of scanners for the first time. With 9.04, my Cannon CanoScan LiDE 25 works without a hitch in ScanLite and Scanner Utility but not in XSane. I am able to scan photos and such and get good quality images. I have an infrequent need to make copies of pieces of paper and have been experimenting a bit trying to make my scanner and printer act like a copier. what type of images to take and how to print them?
