  • Linux Lite: 5.2 64bit

  • CPU: Intel Core i3-2120 CPU @ 3.30GHz

  • MEMORY: 8Gb

  • VIDEO CARD: EVGA GT710

  • Kernel: 5.x
Rather than me downloading some software and then fighting with it to work, maybe someone here can recommend a program that will work well with my Samsung Laser jet printer/scanner?

I had luck with GSCAN2PDF with LL 4.0 but not with 5.2.

I will probably upgrade to 5.4.  Any suggestions?  And if so, the best way to download it?

THANKS

There's a command
Code: [Select]
scanimage which is fairly easy to use. For more info
Code: [Select]
man scanimage and read here for a GUI https://opensource.com/article/18/9/linux-scanner-tools
Without each others help there ain't no hope for us :)
