Scanning / SCX-4521F scanner (Mint 14 & Mint15)
November 02, 2013, 04:53:15
Hello!
I have Samsung SCX-4521F printer/scanner and I am unable to make scanner work on Linux Mint 15. I would really like if someone could find some time and help me with it.
I have added bchemnet repository and installed Samsung unified driver 4.01.17. After installation I can print with my printer, but the scanner doesn't work. It looks like my PC doesn't recognise it.
I tried installing suld-scanner-usblp-fix but with no effect. Also Samsung Configurator doesn't recognise scanner. No luck with xsane and simplescan also. (XSane -> no devices available)
scanimage --format=tiff > test.tiff did move the scanning head so I hope there is still hope in making it work in Linux again.
I have also tried installing samsung unified driver 4.00.39 from AUR in my Manjaro Linux, but with no luck.
To test hardware fault I have tried scanning in Windows Seven, and in Windows scanner works nicely so I guess it's not hardware fault.

So if there is some good soul here that would help me make my scanner work again on Linux I would greatly appreciate it.

Here is my lsusb output:

Here is dmesg output:

Here is sane-find-scanner output (And also sane-find-scanner -f output)
