hello, I have a Xpress c460W Color multifunction samsung printer.
I installed it on windows xp, vista, 7, android, all they work fine, furthermore I have a virtual machine(virtualbox)
with ubuntu 12.04 inside windows 7
I downloaded uld_v1.00.36_00.91.tar from bchemnet.com. When I executed ./install_sh. script(samsung installer) on ubuntu 12.04 virtual machine , the logs are ok, cups and sane too, no message error according the display. Both printer and scanner work ok with usb port using simple scan and xsane, furthermore the printer works ok on wireless network protocol through my router, but the scanner does not work on wireless network protocol through my router. Xsane and simple scan display "No device available" .
Note: I repeat I am working on the virtual machine ubuntu 12.04
I run these testings:
a) from windows ipconfig:
printer ip: 192.168.1.102
virtualbox ip: 192.168.56.1
b) from ubuntu
my virtual machine ip 10.0.2.15
c) Tell SANE to run as a server (saned)
#sudo nano /etc/default/saned
# Set to yes to start saned
d) Tell saned who to share with sudo nano /etc/sane.d/saned.conf
## Access list
#sudo service saned restart
#sudo service saned status
saned is working
however no detect the scanner
1)add the saned user to the lp group
sudo usermod -a -G lp saned
2)Export the scanner to localhost
sudo nano /etc/sane.d/saned.conf
## Access list
3) Tell SANE to use localhost
## saned hosts
From the command line, run
Nothing it works, ¿ why does printer work and the scanner not works? they are in the same machine
What other testings can I do?
thanks for advance
My guess is that you are encountering a variation of the issue of crossing network address space, because Ubuntu thinks it has an IP address in 10.0.2.xxx space but you are asking it to find the scanner in 192.168.1.xxx space. See http://www.bchemnet.com/suldr/scanning.html#6, even though it applies to the older drivers it is possible that the network work-arounds may provide some clues.
It may also be an issue with the network setup in Virtualbox. Even though the printer works, the scanner mode has always been more sensitive to network quirks. You could try setting up port forwarding (if you are configured as NAT) or using bridged networking. I don't know if either would help.
Ubuntu 12.04 also has a history of network problems with the Samsung drivers that are solved by using any other release. You could try setting up a new virtual machine with a different release and checking to see if it works.
bchemnet, thank you for your quick replay. I will follow attempting it
I've successfully detected WiFi on two debian distros - Point Linux & Linux Mint LMDE.
Edit #Samsung C460 Series
# usb 0x04e8 0x3468
tcp 192.168.1.xxx # IP address of Samsung Printer at the moment - obtained either from your router or a printout of the SL-C460W information from the printer itself.
Don't know if the usb needs commenting out but I'm not using it so decided to play safe.
Didn't need to make any other changes.
