For Samsung devices that have an ADF, choosing whether to scan from that or from flatbed should either be done automatically (if the ADF is empty, use flatbed) or at least the user should be able to configure this in a profile. I have implemented the latter; if desired, please incorporate this in the suld-scantopc package.

1. Patch your /usr/bin/

2. Check your device options:

scanimage -A

It should say something like

        Select source of the document to be scanned

3. Edit your /etc/samsungScannerServer.conf accordingly by adding the new "source" entry with the above values.

For example:

    {'name':'Gray ADF 200 PDF','color':'COLOR_GRAY','resolution':'DPI_200','format':'FORMAT_M_PDF','size':'SIZE_A4','source':'ADF Simplex','output':OUTPUT_PREFIX, 'filters':[]},

You should contact Samsung support directly for issues using printers with Windows.

Please help,
My printer have a problem in scanning files everytime it shows me the message attached, i've uninstalled and reinstalled drivers and the installation folder many times but i got nothing please help.
Maybe some of you are baffled by the dual multi-functional printer names in the title.
Well, I've found some long time ago, when I embraced the linux world completely (at home I mean) that my (not cheap at all) Xerox multi-functional printer was in fact... a Samsung printer.
Yes, Xerox WorkCentre PE220 is in fact Samsung SCX-4521F. Don't get me wrong, I'm very happy with my (new found :) ) Samsung printer.

So, to install Xerox WorkCentre PE220 in linux you have to install Samsung SCX-4521F drivers so I ended up on this site and I want to share my experience with installing the right drivers to make both the printer and the scanner working on Debian 8 Jessie and Ubuntu 16.04 - in fac the procedure is exactly the same.

First of all you need to have CUPS installed, if not:

sudo apt-get install cups

The you have to add the bchemet PPA to your apt sources:

sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

Add the following line (let say at the end)
deb debian extra

Close and save.

sudo apt-get update

It will give you an error because you have to install the keyring:
sudo apt-get install suldr-keyring
sudo apt-get update

Now you can install the drivers:

sudo apt-get install suld-driver-3.00.37

This will also install all other necessary packages.

Then install the Samsung configurator (the version bellow worked for me very well):

sudo apt-get install suld-configurator-1-qt4

If you don't have already installed, install xsane to help you manage the scanning process:

sudo apt-get install xsane.

Now you are ready to add you printer and scanner.
For the printer (as it does not work correctly in the Samsung Unified Driver Configurator) open Printers and add your printer (check if your printer is connected and powered !) by choosing Samsung and not Xerox as maker and the driver SCX-4x21.
Normally this should do it for the printer.

Now for the scanner, open Samsung Unified Driver Configurator (as superuser) and go to scanners (the second icon on the left :) ) and wait for it because it takes a while.
You should see you scanner already.

You are all set. Run XSane and enjoy your multi-functional printer.

Now, after all this years I wonder why have I chosen a Xerox maker printer. Samsung is all better :)

My MFP is Samsung SCX-4623FW connected via USB.

Do you mean this model?

Unfortunately I cannot offer any additional advice beyond what is posted on these forums and the website.  I don't have any personal experience relevant to this situation, and have never used Simple Scan.

So now I am up to:
- printing works
- scanning works half the time, some of the time
I tried scanning using XSane. Scanning first time fails every time. Scanning subsequent times works fine. XSane reminds me of the days of GIMP: way to much is going on.
This is a computer for my (elderly) parents. Simple Scan would be a much more appropriate applications for them. Unfortunately, Simple Scan fails every time.
Any ideas?

« Last post by bchemnet on April 12, 2017, 09:47:18 PM »
The driver only operates the printer.  It has nothing to do with setting up the printer initially.  That process is handled by whatever system handles all printer installations.  If the printer is automatically detected by your system and configured, it may (or may not) select the correct driver, and/or may prompt you for the correct driver.  If the printer is not automatically detected, you will have to manually trigger the new printer installation through whatever tool is appropriate on your system.  To use the Samsung-provided driver, make sure you are selecting a driver called "Samsung Series...."; other drivers with "Samsung" in the name are usually an open-source alternative.

The driver should launch when you connect the printer?
