Scanning / Re: Unable to scan from SCX-4216F on Ubuntu 12.04
« on: December 21, 2015, 12:12:33 »
Printing has always worked fine for me whichever suld driver version I've tried. It's scanning that is the problem. The printer-driver-splix driver is only a printer driver, it doesn't support scanners.

When I install suld-driver-3.00.37-2/samsungmfp-driver-legacy or suld-driver-4.00.35-2, no scanner is found, xsane doesn't start, suld-scanner-usblp-fix doesn't make any difference.

When I install 4.00.39-2, scanimage -L says "device `smfp:SAMSUNG SCX-4x16 Series on USB:0' is a SAMSUNG SCX-4x16 Series on USB:0 Scanner". I however get "Failed to open device 'smfp:SAMSUNG SCX-4x16 Series on USB:0': Error during device I/O." when starting xsane. When I also install suld-scanner-usblp-fix with 4.00.39-2, xsane starts without complaints, but hangs after scanning initializing and head movements - just when it seems like actual scanning is starting, and I get a simple "Error during device I/O" error. sane-find-scanner never reports any scanner.

Just reinstalled Ubuntu Mate and the scanner work just with this:

a) Connect directly to USB computer port, no hubs
b) In terminal:
sudo echo "deb http://www.bchemnet.com/suldr/ debian extra" >> /etc/apt/sources.list
wget -O - http://www.bchemnet.com/suldr/suldr.gpg | sudo apt-key add -
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade -y
sudo apt-get install -y samsungmfp-driver-legacy
sudo apt-get install -y samsungmfp-scanner

And don't forget when you add printer in cups select driver 4216f not 4x16.
I don't understand what you mean with "select driver 4216f not 4x16"? The only choice available in the add printer GUI or the cups web interface is SCX 4x16 for me, and there is just a SCX-4x16.ppd.gz file in /usr/share/cups/model/suld.

In your previous reply I understand it as you just change the display name? ("When selecting driver from database indicate SCX-4216F not SCX-4x16 and name and description replace x with 2 for completness.")

Scanning / Re: Need to create /dev/usb/scanner0 to make SCX-4521F work?

Did you get it to work? I'm curious because I suspect there's a possibility I could get my scanner to work if I know the cause of this...

Otherwise I guess it should be a question for the Ubuntu community, it's likely something that have affected other persons in the version change.

Adding a symlink from /dev/usb/lp0 to /dev/usb/scanner0 makes sane-find-scanner report a scanner, which it didn't before:

found USB scanner (UNKNOWN vendor and product) at device /dev/usb/scanner0


I added the following to /lib/udev/rules.d/40-libsane.rules, just trying to get the correct name detected, but it still said "UNKNOWN"...

# Samsung SCX-4216F
ATTRS{idVendor}=="04e8", ATTRS{idProduct}=="3409", ENV{libsane_matched}="yes"

also added

# Samsung SCX-4216F
usb 0x04e8 0x3409

to /etc/sane.d/xerox_mfp.conf in case it would help, but it didn't, so I removed both those edits.


I'm starting to think that sane-find-scanner just reports that there is a device (the symlink), nothing more.


With driver suld-driver-4.00.35, which reportedly have been working for the two gentlemen earlier in the thread, no scanner is found by scanimage -L which I find a bit strange.


All reboots makes this feel like windows. Except that it doesn't work afterwards.

Trying to get the scanner on my scx-4216F to work, but no... Using Mint 17.2 (which is more or less Ubuntu 14.04 LTS I guess?)

With the 4.00.39 driver the scanner is found with scanimage -L - device `smfp:SAMSUNG SCX-4x16 Series on USB:0' is a SAMSUNG SCX-4x16 Series on USB:0 Scanner

The scanner starts when trying to scan something, the head is moving around and it seems it's initializing, but then I get Error during device I/O.

And when installing 4.00.35-2 instead, no scanner is found. Are there other drivers or parts I should try to downgrade as well? (suld-ppd-1 is version 4.00.39 for example, but I wouldn't know how to get another version.) When removing all suld-things and trying to install samsungmfp-scanner-sane-fix-multiarch I get this: Depends: suld-driver-common  but it is not installable. There is a package named suld-driver-common-1 however.  All Samsung packages are marked as a transitional packages in Synaptics due to name changes (samsung/suld I guess?) but I can't find an equivalent named suld-package, something with sane/scanner/fix?
