  • Linux Distribution: Ubuntu 18.04 64 bit
  • Printer: SCX-3400

using ubuntu 12.04 LTS 64 bit with Samsung SCX-3400 and SULDR-packages.
If I use latest driver (4.01.17), I'm able to scan and print documents, pdfs, but not image files (e.g. printing jpegs will fail, i.e. goes to queue and then vanishes).
Viceversa, if I downgrade to 3.00.65, I'm able to print everything, but scanning will fail when attempting to get a scan preview (after a few seconds when the scan starts "Error during read: Error during device I/O") with xsane.

Thanks in advance

The SCX-3400 is not officially supported by the 3.00.65 driver, so a failure there is not a surprise.  I suggest trying 3.00.90, 4.00.35, and 4.00.39.  Chances are that one (or all) of those will work better than either of the two versions that you have tried.
