Scanning / Xerox Workcentre 3025 Working, but no network discovery for scanner
« Last post by Kisuke-CZE on July 16, 2017, 01:59:29 PM »
Hi gyus,

I've got a Xerox Workcentre 3025BI. Unfortunately Xerox driver for linux did not work un my Linux Mint (Based on Ubuntu 16.04).
Since I found this printer is just rebranded Samsung M2070, I installed driver V1.00.37 from samsung website (driver from SULDR V1.00.36 does not work for scanning). And it just works for printing and scanning over network.

URL to Samsungs website:

Only thing is not working. Simple-scan utility can't find scanner on network automatically like I believe it should (it worked with previous printer from HP). Any ideas how to get this working?

Now I used quick-fix by editing Exec line of ~/.local/share/applications/simple-scan.desktop:
Code: [Select]
Exec=simple-scan "smfp:net;[STATIC_IP_OF_PRINTER]"
It works now. But would be nice if it could work better.
Thanks for sharing.  I am going to decline to incorporate it into the package at least for now, because this adds an unnecessary step for those who don't want to mess with the source.  If it could be modified to default to something reasonable in the absence of setting the specific source, as it does now, I will include it.  I suspect I know how it could be done, but I don't have a test system to check it with.
General Discussion / Re: Can't use Ubuntu LiveCD to reset windows 10 password

I don't remember the login password of Windows 10. So i made a bootable USB disk with Ubuntu Live CD. I downloaded the chnptw and followed the online tutorial to reset the password to blank. Every time, i did this and Win 10 still asks for me password. This is weird. Is there other way to remove the password?

check here-
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.

It should say something like

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

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.
