I am attempting to use my Dell P713 printer/scanner on my machine. I (with some difficulty) got the printer to work, but cannot get the scanner to work.
sudo sane-find-scanner gives the following output:
# 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. # No SCSI scanners found. If you expected something different, make sure that # you have loaded a kernel SCSI driver for your SCSI adapter. found USB scanner (vendor=0x413c, product=0x5236) at libusb:006:004 # Your USB scanner was (probably) detected. It may or may not be supported by # SANE. Try scanimage -L and read the backend's manpage. # Not checking for parallel port scanners. # Most Scanners connected to the parallel port or other proprietary ports # can't be detected by this program. # You may want to run this program as root to find all devices. Once you # found the scanner devices, be sure to adjust access permissions as # necessary.
sudo scanimage -L outputs the following:
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).
I edited the /etc/sane.d/lexmark.conf by adding the last two lines (I know it is not technically a Lexmark, but I actually had to use a Lexmark driver to get the printer to work):
# X11xx series usb 0x043d 0x007c # X12xx series usb 0x043d 0x007d # Dell A920 usb 0x413c 0x5105 # X74 usb 0x43d 0x0060 # Dell P713 usb 0x413c 0x5236
Because the sane website indicates that certain Dell printers may use the xerox backend, I also attempted to add the line to the xerox configuration file without success.
Any advice would be appreciated.
