    Question Ethernet Printer will not scan (Lexmark platinum pro 905)

    Hello ;=)

    I'm trying to have my _Ethernet_ Lexmark Platinum pro 905 printer being able to scan from openSUSE 42.1 Leap.
    It does work from windows but under linux skanlite and xsane do not see the scanner (both tell me thay can't find the scanner).
    (print and copy are ok, but scanning is not for device is not seen by scanning softs )

    I installed this driver from driverscollection.com : lexmark-inkjet-legacy-wJRE-1.0-1.x86_64.rpm.sh


    I'm using static ip, which should help. Is Ethernet connection disturbing skanlite or xsane ?


    How can i solve this ?




    Hopefully xsane's help gives me various options for peripheral not being detected, i'm thus investigating these :

    1- no device supported by sane, how do i see which devices are supported ?
    http://www.sane-project.org/sane-bac...html#S-LEXMARK shows a figure but only usb interface ... i'm i stuck when using ethernet interface ?

    2- supported devices are busy , ho do i see scanner or device state ? (cups status says Idle , does it suffice ?)

    3-permissionsfor the device file do not allow to use it, try as root
    what shall i try then ?

    4-backend is not loaded by sane (man sane-dll)
    still looking at this, but i have none dll.conf in /usr/lib64/sane.
    i have /etc/sane.d/dll.conf which contains : lexmark, LexmarkLegacy_1_0_0, Lexmark_1_0_0, lexmark_nscan

    do i need to add /etc/sane.d/dll.d file ? with which backend ?


    5- backend is not configured correctly (man sane-"backendname")
    no clue how to be sure it is ok here.

    6- more than one version is installed :
    is this being the problem ?
    i have this :
    Code:
    > rpm -qa | grep sane
    xsane-0.998-25.2.x86_64
    sane-backends-autoconfig-1.0.24-3.7.x86_64
    sane-backends-32bit-1.0.24-3.7.x86_64
    libksane0-15.08.3-1.1.x86_64
    hplip-sane-3.15.11-132.1.x86_64
    sane-backends-1.0.24-3.7.x86_64

    With the help from someone on irc i also tried other ways but still ko :
    - adding static ip in config files https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php...te_workstation
    - i tried various drivers from lexmark ( lexmark-printer-utility-1.0-1.x86_64,network-scan-linux-glibc2-x86_64, lexmark-PPD-Files-LMAD4-1.0-1.x86_64).
    They offer 2015 driver versions but either i can't print (cups says a file is missing ) , or i have a network scan driver that is not able to see the scan device (after adding static ip it says ip or host is wrong from xsane and skanlite).
    is the last one (ppd) useful ? I haven't tried it yet.
    I went back to the legacy driver, it at least allows me to print and copy.


    Thanks

    Default Re: Ethernet Printer will not scan (Lexmark platinum pro 905)

    I don't like your chances with such an old model.


    I installed this driver from driverscollection.com : lexmark-inkjet-legacy-wJRE-1.0-1.x86_64.rpm.sh
    I had a quick look at the configuration files for that driver, but it only seem to relate to USB-attached devices.

    With the help from someone on irc i also tried other ways but still ko :
    - adding static ip in config files https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php...te_workstation
    - i tried various drivers from lexmark ( lexmark-printer-utility-1.0-1.x86_64,network-scan-linux-glibc2-x86_64, lexmark-PPD-Files-LMAD4-1.0-1.x86_64).
    They offer 2015 driver versions but either i can't print (cups says a file is missing ) , or i have a network scan driver that is not able to see the scan device (after adding static ip it says ip or host is wrong from xsane and skanlite).
    is the last one (ppd) useful ? I haven't tried it yet.
    I went back to the legacy driver, it at least allows me to print and copy.
    The printer and scanner drivers are completely separate, and the ppd relates to printing only. I was also going to suggest trying the more recent 'network-scan-linux' package, but see that you already gave it a go. Hard to say whether the Pro 905 model would be supported by it though.

    FWIW, I did find this guide when using the newer lexmark_nscan backend

    http://www.lexmark.com/publications/...8956339_en.pdf

    BTW, did you try tunring the firewall off before attempting to scan?
    Code:
    sudo systemctl stop SuSEfirewall2.service
    Is the scanner then detected by your preferred scanner utility?

    Default Re: Ethernet Printer will not scan (Lexmark platinum pro 905)

    Hi

    Thank you for your answer.

    Actually i did not stop entirely the firewall but i had opened some tcp ports (9761:9760) in the firewall, but i did stop completly now, and still can't have the device recognised after i install the network driver (rpm -ivh network-scan-linux-glibc2-x86_64.rpm).
    I don't get why after adding static ip of the printer xsane/skanlite does not see it.
    xsane actually says that "the peripheral is not compatible with the scanner, choose another scanner/peripheral"



    Now from the manual i see this part which seems to relate to the problem :

    SANE does not recognize the network scan driver
    SANE-compliant applications such XSane and scanadf access the scanner through SANE.

    Make sure:
    •The scan driver is installed in the /usr/lib/sane directory.

    i have no /usr/lib/sane dir so far, how do i make sure the driver is installed there ?

    •The scan driver device file exists.
    well it does, i installed it

    • The scan driver is listed in the /etc/sane.d/dll.conf file.
    i have lexmark backend there, what more is needed ?

    •'lexmark_nscan' is listed in the /etc/sane.d/dll.conf file and
    no '#' is typed before it.
    yes, it's at the end of the file, see below

    • The SANE installation is using the directory structure /usr/lib/sane and /etc/sane.d/.
    how do i check this for sure ?


    Troubleshooting

    For some SANE installations, you may need to set the LD_LIBRARY_PATH:
    1
    Open a terminal window, and then type
    export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib
    .
    2
    Press
    Enter
    .

    i have this :

    Thank you for your answer.

    Actually i did not stop entirely the firewall but i had opened some tcp ports (9761:9760) in the firewall, but i did stop completely now, and still can't have the device recognised after i install the network driver (rpm -ivh network-scan-linux-glibc2-x86_64.rpm).
    I don't get why after adding static ip of the printer xsane/skanlite does not see it.
    xsane actually says that "the peripheral is not compatible with the scanner, choose another scanner/peripheral"
    Well, maybe the driver is not compatible with your device. The only Linux driver explicitly listed by Lexamekr for that model is supplied by 'lexmark-scan-legacy' but that does not seem to have network support.

    Now from the manual i see this part which seems to relate to the problem :

    SANE does not recognize the network scan driver
    SANE-compliant applications such XSane and scanadf access the scanner through SANE.

    Make sure:
    •The scan driver is installed in the /usr/lib/sane directory.

    i have no /usr/lib/sane dir so far, how do i make sure the driver is installed there ?
    Yes, you should have. For example, I installed the RPM and get
    Code:
    # ls -l /usr/lib/sane/libsane-lexmark_nscan*
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 70 Jan  6 16:27 /usr/lib/sane/libsane-lexmark_nscan.so -> /usr/local/lexmark/unix_scan_drivers/lib/sane/libsane-lexmark_nscan.so
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 72 Jan  6 16:27 /usr/lib/sane/libsane-lexmark_nscan.so.1 -> /usr/local/lexmark/unix_scan_drivers/lib/sane/libsane-lexmark_nscan.so.1
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 77 Jan  6 16:27 /usr/lib/sane/libsane-lexmark_nscan.so.1.0.16 -> /usr/local/lexmark/unix_scan_drivers/lib/sane/libsane-lexmark_nscan.so.1.0.16
    also linked in the /usr/lib64/sane/ directory as well

    •The scan driver device file exists.
    well it does, i installed it

    • The scan driver is listed in the /etc/sane.d/dll.conf file.
    i have lexmark backend there, what more is needed ?
    Well, maybe the driver is simply not compatible with this hardware. The Pro 905 existed before this driver was written, and vendors frequently drop support for legacy models. You could contact Lexmark for support, but I wouldn't realistically expect muvh by way of assistance. They will want to encourage you to buy a new model. HP and Brother are typically better supported by the respective manufacturers when it comes to Linux.

    AS long as the proprietary driver is declared in /etc/sane.d/dll.conf (as you've mentioned it is), the driver is located in the expected location (it is for me), and it is compatible (who knows?) then all should be well. However, I'm not sure that the last obvious requirement is met.

    Code:
                                                                                                                                                                                                            
    fabrice@openSUSE421:~> scanimage -L                                                                                                                                                                                                         
    device `lexmark_nscan:libnet/SPECIFY_DEVICE' is a Lexmark Network Scanner
    Well, that looks encouraging. I don't know what the 'SPECIFY_DEVICE is about though.

    Code:
                                                                                                                                                                    
    fabrice@openSUSE421:~> ls /usb/lib/sane
    ls: impossible d'accéder à /usb/lib/sane: Aucun fichier ou dossier de ce type (translation : can't access, no file nor dir of this type)
    Use one of these instead
    Code:
    ls -la /usr/lib/sane
    Code:
    dir /usr/lib/sane

    I just ran 'scanimage -L' without any network-attached scanner being present. I get the same result as you did...
    Code:
    No manual entry for lexmark_nscan
    dmartin@linux-hi6j:~> scanimage -L
    device `lexmark_nscan:libnet/SPECIFY_DEVICE' is a Lexmark Network Scanner
    So now I understand that this is just the due to the 'lexmark_nscan' backend being active, but not finding any any compatible scanner.

    i'm now thinking that scan driver is not compatible with my "old" printer. It's not that old though. I remember scanning with this printer but not if i was in usb or Ethernet (it has both available) .
    By the way it works under windows.

    i'm now thinking that scan driver is not compatible with my "old" printer. It's not that old though.
    'Old' is a subjective term, but sadly vendors often generate obsolescence by limiting or removing driver support.
    I remember scanning with this printer but not if i was in usb or Ethernet (it has both available) .
    Almost certainly it was via USB. The 'lexmarklegacy_1_0_0' and 'lexmarklegacy_2_0_0' backends are used for this.

    By the way it works under windows.
    As I expected.

    I guess you could consider using VM with Windows installed as a guest for scanner access. More convenient than dual-booting IMHO.

    H conram. I have already looked at that page, and it contains essentially the same information as the PDF I linked to earlier in this thread. The real issue is that the backend provided by this package does not appear to support older Lexmark models. The Pro 905 does have a legacy backend available, but it doesn't seem to be network-aware.
