(SOLVED) Printer/Scanner Samsung SCX-3200 error finding scanner

hi to everyone,
i managed to use this printer with samsung unified driver from AUR and CUPS; works without problem. But, i have troubles configuring with sane. That's the output while #:

# sane-find-scanner will now attempt to detect your scanner. If the                               
  # result is different from what you expected, first make sure your                                
  # scanner is powered up and properly connected to your computer.

found USB scanner (vendor=0x04e8 [Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd.], product=0x3441 [SCX-3200 Series]) at libusb:004:008                                                                                   
  # Your USB scanner was (probably) detected. It may or may not be supported by

  # Not checking for parallel port scanners.                                                        
                                                                                                    
  # Most Scanners connected to the parallel port or other proprietary ports                         
  # can't be detected by this program. 

While i use scanimage -L it cannot find anything (i comment v4l from /etc/sane.d/dll.conf because of the webcam was recognized as a scanner)
I inserted vendor and product in /etc/sane.d/xerox_mfp.conf but no results.

Any way to solve? Thanks in advance

PS= i'm in scanner and lp groups

Bump. Same issue after reinstall, had no problems previously. I'm missing a package maybe, or something is misconfigured. Any help appreciated.

Did you manage to get it working? I'm having the same issue and I'd hate to switch from Arch just to use my scanner.

Negative. Going to try ubuntu on virtualbox, worked previously with an HP printer, but it's an ugly workaround. For scanning it's less annoying, I don't do that as much, but it's still not good.

Re: (SOLVED) Printer/Scanner Samsung SCX-3200 error finding scanner

Hi!

I have the same problem, but with a Samsung CLX-3175FN. According to the SANE website, both scanners should be supported by the xerox-mfp driver, but there is a bug in this driver when handling usb scanners. On the Fedora website, I found a fixed bug (number 702983) which is supposed to fix our problem.

I'm do not know how and when such a bugfix gets included in the arch sane package.

How could I verify that?

Re: (SOLVED) Printer/Scanner Samsung SCX-3200 error finding scanner

I installed the samsung-unified-driver from AUR and this is what I get:

$ scanimage -L
sh: /sbin/ifconfig: No existe el fichero o el directorio

No scanners were identified. If you were expecting something different,
check that the scanner is plugged in, turned on and detected by the
sane-find-scanner tool (if appropriate). Please read the documentation
which came with this software (README, FAQ, manpages).

It says /sbib/ifconfig doesn exist. I guess it has something to do with the deprecation of net-tools.

P.S.: I'm having a lot of trouble with the priter also. I can install it and sometimes it works OK. Mostly it just prints simbols on several pages. I think it 's a driver issue. I've tried with samsung-unified-driver from AUR, splix and the PPD file.

I think ifconfig not being found only implicates it can't search for network devices. It should still find the device when connected to usb. And I too have the multipage one-line symbol crap, especially with pdf's. Printing with a different app (e.g. gimp instead of evince) sometimes works.

Re: (SOLVED) Printer/Scanner Samsung SCX-3200 error finding scanner

Hi all,

I can now confirm that the Fedora 15 version of sane 1.0.22 works with my Samsung 3175FN scanner, using the xerox-mfp driver.

I will make a Arch bug report, as I think that is the way forward?

Just FYI, AUR's samsung-unified-driver was updated today.

My printer still doesn't work. I'm about to throw this thing through the window.

Re: (SOLVED) Printer/Scanner Samsung SCX-3200 error finding scanner

I installed the packages from here (http://www.bchemnet.com/suldr/) on Ubuntu and the printer works great. Haven't tried the scanner though.

Maybe someone more knowledgeable than me can use this info in Arch.

Update to sane 1.0.22-4 today fixed finding scanner! Yay! Let's hope it lasts. I couldn't find what was changed exactly in the package, so maybe today's just a lucky day.

Edit: still works smile

Re: (SOLVED) Printer/Scanner Samsung SCX-3200 error finding scanner

Hey guys, I am glad to hear that you fixed your scanner. I installed samsung-unified-driver from AUR and latest sane (1.0.22-4), my printer scx-3205 works almost fine, but scanner is not still recognized. I managed to find scanner by loading usblp module which was blacklisted in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf:
$ scanimage -L
device `v4l:/dev/video0' is a Noname Integrated Camera virtual device
device `smfp:SAMSUNG SCX-3200 Series on USB:0' is a SAMSUNG SCX-3200 Series on USB:0 Flatbed Scanner
After that printer stoped working and I had to unload usblp.
@mas_kecil and @VCoolio, do you really have both printer and scanner working at the same time?

Re: (SOLVED) Printer/Scanner Samsung SCX-3200 error finding scanner

Yeah, both work. usblp blacklisted, samsung-unified-driver and splix installed and a file /lib/udev/rules.d/99-custom.rules containing:
ATTR{idVendor}=="04e8", ATTR{idProduct}=="3441", MODE="0666", GROUP="lp"

So permissions set to 0666 and group to lp, of which I'm a member of course. Check your ipVendor and idProduct code with lsusb.

Re: (SOLVED) Printer/Scanner Samsung SCX-3200 error finding scanner

Thanks for the answer. I have the same ipVendor and ipProduct as you do. I even also have the same rules, and I am in lp group. But scanner doesn't work.

Are you sure that usblp blacklisted? Can you post your
lsmod | grep usb
and
modinfo usblp
?

Also I have a line in /etc/sane.d/xerox_mfp.conf:

I'm not sure if I added that myself or it comes with sane. Do you have that?

Re: (SOLVED) Printer/Scanner Samsung SCX-3200 error finding scanner

VCoolio, you are genius! The line "usb 0x04e8 0x3441" in /etc/sane.d/xerox_mfp.conf solved the problem! As far I understand it makes the sane use xerox-mfp libs instead of original Samsung from unified package.
Thank you very much!

Ah, I know how frustrating this stuff is, so I'm glad I could help. Also thank you for asking, I totally forgot this fix and anytime soon I would have had trouble myself again and be as helpless as you were. Mfp doesn't stand for multi-functional printer in my dictionary, if you catch my drift.

Re: (SOLVED) Printer/Scanner Samsung SCX-3200 error finding scanner

VCoolio, I have a few questions.
1. What driver do you use? CUPS+Gutenprint v5.2.7 or from Samsung?
2. Have you notice any strange behavior in your scx-3200? I have to turn off and then turn on printer and only after that procedure I can print a page.

Thanks!

Re: (SOLVED) Printer/Scanner Samsung SCX-3200 error finding scanner

I have /etc/cups/ppd/Samsung_SCX-3200_Series.ppd and cups says driver Samsung SCX-3200 Series (grayscale, 2-sided printing).

/etc/cups/printers.conf:

I don't need to turn on/off. I do recall behavior like this. Don't know if I fixed it or it went away. Try another usb-port on your machine. I have it plugged in in the back. Iirc the front usb ports didn't go well with the printer.

Re: (SOLVED) Printer/Scanner Samsung SCX-3200 error finding scanner

Damn, I'm very disappointed. These days I spend trying the following: change usb ports, install unified drivers from Samsung support page, different drivers for Samsung printer from cups (generic). And I still didn't find a reason why this printer prints empty pages with unrecognized symbols instead of normal pages.

Have you tried in cups with the ppd file from samsung unified driver?

I haven't installed unified driver, I only moved ppd file to /usr/lib/cups/filter/

Printer works in "draft" mode, not in "normal" mode.

You find ppd files in: cdroot/Linux/x86_64/at_root/usr/lib64/cups/filter/

My printer CPL-325W needs rastertosamsungsplc.

Move at your choice to: /usr/lib/cups/filter/

Re: (SOLVED) Printer/Scanner Samsung SCX-3200 error finding scanner

I managed to let the printer work. Basically i have:

Installed unified driver from samsung website or aur package named samsung-unified-driver , as i have custom kernel i inserted usbcore on modules in rc.conf, @cupsd on daemons, blacklist usblp in /etc/modprobe.d/modprobe.conf and then installed the drivers,then configured cups. Then i put myself on lp and scanner groups; inserted on /etc/sane.d/xerox_mfp.conf:

#Samsung SCX-3200
usb 0x04e8 0x3441

obtained by lsub. Reboot (logout/login is enough) and print and scanner worls flawlessy in a non-mutual exclusive state printer/scanner!!

Bye
