Upgrade breaks scanning CLX-3185FW, Ubuntu Lucid, solved
« on: June 13, 2012, 09:07:31 AM »
Hi, to continue the discussion about the libtiff.so.3 symlink, yes it points at a valid file (full details at Ubuntu's message board).

The other thing I was going to say, under "how to ask for help" ... people should provide history, especially if it worked before, or if they've tried several things.

^Nick.

Hi, to continue the discussion about the libtiff.so.3 symlink, yes it points at a valid file (full details at Ubuntu's message board).
For now I have given up with trying to build symlinks and am just shipping the old library in the repository.  When I first put everything together there were still a couple of packages that would have caused conflicts with that, but it appears that libtiff3 is completely gone in official packages and so this (rather sad) solution is simplest.

Regarding the ldd issue, I should have checked that but didn't.  ldd isn't terribly reliable for the Samsung files for reasons I don't understand (for example, ldd will report that a current library is found and acceptable, but then it still crashes if the older version isn't available when the file is actually run), although obviously the "not found" for the libtiff would clearly have indicated a problem.  So I have a custom routine I run instead, but obviously that failed in this case.  I've added an ldd bit for future checks.

The other thing I was going to say, under "how to ask for help" ... people should provide history, especially if it worked before, or if they've tried several things.

Good suggestion, I'm going to add that.

Not sure if this is posted in the right thread, but at least the subject was applicable to my situation.

Have been successfully using the CLX-3175fn with Ubuntu since Karmic with the following drivers:
http://www.bchemnet.com/suldr/index.html

I am on 12.04 LTS since May 2012 and everything worked flawlessly (printing and scanning via LAN) until an update somewhere in september/october where it stopped scanning via LAN (the scanner was not detected with a LAN connection). The printer however kept functioning correctly.

I solved the scanning problem by following instructions on:
http://wiki.ubuntuusers.de/Samsung-Laserdrucker
where I changed the settings in /etc/sane.d/xerox_mfp.conf to comment out the USB specs and replace it with the IP-address. This worked immediately.

This seems a bit of a workaround. I'm afraid that now it won't work with a USB connection, but at least then I know what's causing it.
