Epson CX4900 scanning problem

Postby sharke on Sun Apr 01, 2007 6:27 am

I have a Epson CX49000 all in one Print Scan Copy.
Printing is working perfectly with Gutenprint 5.0 driver
Has a USB Interface.
~$ lsusb
Bus 005 Device 008: ID 04b8:082b Seiko Epson Corp.
Bus 005 Device 006: ID 0bda:0103 Realtek Semiconductor Corp.
Bus 005 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 003 Device 002: ID 16d8:6280
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 0000:0000

~$ sane-find-scanner

# 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=0x04b8, product=0x082b) at libusb:005:008
found USB scanner (vendor=0x16d8, product=0x6280) at libusb:003:002
# 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.
The fist item listed with sane-find-scanner is correct the second item is a usb 3g modem

~$ scanimage -l
scanimage: no SANE devices found

I am stuck at this point how can i get sane to see the scanner.

I'm having similar problems and is looking for a solution. I'll be posting something shortly, most likely a cry for help (for both of us) rather than a solution

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

Getting closer to a solution I edited th etc/sane.d/epson.conf file to this

# epson.conf
#
# here are some examples for how to configure the EPSON backend
#
# SCSI scanner:
#scsi EPSON
# for the GT-6500:
scsi "EPSON SC"

# Parallel port scanner:
#pio 0x278
#pio 0x378
#pio 0x3BC
#
# USB scanner:
# There are two different methods of configuring a USB scanner: libusb and the kernel module
# For any system with libusb support (which is pretty much any recent Linux distribution) the
# following line is sufficient. This however assumes that the connected scanner (or to be more
# accurate, it's device ID) is known to the backend.
#usb
# For libusb support for unknown scanners use the following command
usb 0x4b8 0x082b
# e.g.:
# usb 0x4b8 0x110
# And for the scanner module, use the following configuration:
#usb /dev/usbscanner0
#usb /dev/usb/scanner0

Ican now scan if i run xsane as root so it is a permission problem i am investigating further.

Permission Fixed
Sudo gedit /etc/udev/rules.d/40-permissions.rules and change usb subsystem to mode 0666 and xsane should find scanner as user.
