I have a Epson 3490 photo scanner, I had been using XSane to enable me to use the scanner, it stopped working and I found the disc that came with the scanner, so installed that but nothing seems to work.
a) How do I uninstall what I installed with the disk
b) what can I do to make the scanner work.
I am new to Ubuntu and not techy, so really basic instructions would be most hel
I have a Canon Pixma E510 printer + scanner. I had no problem in getting the printer identified in Ubuntu. But so far haven't been able to make the scanner work. When I click on SANE, it says no scanner found. Please reply and help me to use the scanner in Ubuntu.
I have SANE and SANE-scanner installed in my Ubuntu 12.04 box. I have an Epson V500 flatbed scanner, tied by USB to my machine. On my network I also have an HP All-in-One that has scanner functionality. Both are detected by the computer as scanners. I want to always use the Epson scanner but can't find a way to tell SANE-scanner to use the (second listed) Epson scanner.
Okay so I bought a Kodak all in one printer/scanner/copier and was able to get a driver for the printer to work, but not the scanner; so I kept my old hp 3-in-1 so I could scan and it was working great. Thing is I think when I tried installing sane from the git repository because it supposively would allow the Kodak scanner to work, now the hp scanner won't be detected.
Here's another thing, Ihave a HP officejet 4200 series-Hp psc 1310 series printer/scanner combo. The printer works fine. Unbuntu 12.4 does not recognize the scanner. I have inserted the driver disk but only the various files( 56 total ) are displayed. I don't have a clue as to how to use them. Is there a plugin I can download to get this particular Hp scanner to work with my Ubuntu 12.4](*,)
kinda new to ubuntu been using it for a year. Running 11.10 In the past i've been able to solve my issues by searching the internet. But now I'm trying to install cannon pixma mx432 printer scanner. I got the printer working but I'm having a hard time with the scanner i get this message when i have sane find scanner
# sane-find-scanner will now attempt to detect your scanner.
Hey all! I just switched from ubuntu 10.03 to 12.04. My scanner (part of the scanner printer combination sx235w by Epson) does not work anymore. I downloaded the .deb plug from the epson download center.
