Re: Install Epson XP-620 Linux Mint 20

thanks to those who replied. I really need baby steps. One baby step was to say whether you are using a USB connection. You could not even be bothered to respond to that simple request. A second baby step was to to use a terminal (its in the menu) to execute the commands you were asked for. Please ...

Re: Fix for USB scanner not working on LM20 that worked on LM19

ippusbxd is installed on LM20 and automatically starts via a systemd service file when the device is plugged into a USB port. The intention is for printing and scanning with a modern device to become immediately available to a user without having to install vendor-specific drivers. Installing a prin...

Re: Printer Help HP mfp m477fdw

The printer is on WiFi and not close enough to where I could run a USB to it. Being on WiFi the best :D. Keep it there! Download and install sane-airscan: https://github.com/alexpevzner/sane-airscan The Printers and Scanners forum has lots of success stories from users who did precisely that. Your ...

Wireless is easier for me to guide you through. Give the outputs of avahi-browse -rt _ipp._rcp avahi-browse -rt _uscan._rcp driverless The ony command delivering an output is the third one: ipp://HP%20ENVY%205530%20series%20%5B697E44%5D._ipp._tcp.local/ Walter This third output is the URI for the p...

Re: Printer Help HP mfp m477fdw

Many users are reporting problems with scanning on LM20. see https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=51&t=329760&p=1881829&hilit=lm20+scanner#p1881829 That is partly (if not wholly) because neither Ubuntu nor LM provided anything to document changes in the printing system.

Re: Printer Help HP mfp m477fdw

I'm unfamiliar with how "driverless printing and sane-airscan" is supposed to work... Then become familiar with it :). Read the Printers and Scanners forum and https://wiki.debian.org/CUPSDriverlessPrinting Is this meant to work out-of-the-box because it was not working for me thus resorting to oth...

Re: Printer Help HP mfp m477fdw

I am so close to giving up and going back to Linux Mint 19. HPLIP in LM20 supports your device. Why mess with HPLIP 3.20.6? HPLIP is not needed on LM20 for printing or scanning. Use driverless printing and sane-airscan. In the time you have struggled with python and HPLIP 3.20.6 you could have set ...

Your device has an AirPrint service. I would set it up with driverless printing and scanning.

Re: Brother MFCL3750 now refuses to scan

I did see two more issues that might be causing this? Something about v4l and pint not loading.
I imagine commenting those two out would see the complaints disappear but not lead to scanning.

Re: Document Scanner "Failed to scan - unable to connect to scanner"

First though, a question, when you open Document Scanner, do you get a dropdown list of alternatives to choose before attempting to run the scan? If you do, you may find some of the options work whereas the default option showing might not. Look for a down arrow at the right end of the text box sho...

Re: [NOT SOLVED]: Cannon Imageclass MF260 Series: Scanner not recognized.

I'm not clear if you still have ippusbxd on your system. It shouldn't be there if you are using ipp-usb so, if it is there, purge it. Installing ipp-usb on Debian automatically removes ippusbxd. I have not checked whether Alex Pevzner's package does this, but I would have thought it did. You stated...

Re: Cannon Imageclass MF260 Series: Scanner not recognized.

Okay, the story so far: I got rid of ippusbxd as you said and installed ipp-usb from your link and suddenly, I was able to scan! Simple Scan found the scanner and it just worked. But, acting on a hunch, I tried printing something and it just didn't happen. I reinstalled ippusbxd, and I could print ...

Re: HP ENVY 5530 standing in "processing page"

Hello walterros73,

You are going to have to make a decision whether to have a wireless or a USB connection. It affects the treatment given to your issue. I prefer wireless.
