Konica Minolta printer-scanner, scanner not found Linux Mint 19

Post by arizan68+ » Sat Nov 03, 2018 1:21 pm

I can't install a printer driver for KONICA MINOLTA pagepro 1480mf printer- scanner. I am using Ubuntu drivers, because they are available, but gksu install command (in readme) doesn't work. What is the proper command?

The scanner installs, but the computer says ''not found''.

Any ideas?

Do you have a link for that driver (download site)?

Yes, https://www.konicaminolta.eu/en/busines ... loads.html.

But I have managed to install the printer. I did it via command line based SCRIPT (that is the second setup way in README, which I didn't pay attention to in the beginning).

However, I will be very grateful if anyone can help with the gksu command (the first setup way in README), because I will certainly need it in the future, given I am a total beginner in Linux.

A printer/scanner device installed, but the computer can't see the scanner.

The device is Konica Minolta 1780 mf pagepro.

Linux Mint 19.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Try downloading vuescan and see if that finds the scanner.

It's not free, but I've been a fan of it for years.

I have tried it, but it didn't work. I also tried xsane and simplescan, but they couldn't detect the scanner either.
