Hello,


If during installation of a scanner unit (or all-in-one unit), your scanner is not recognized, you may try this solution :


[size=78%]1 - download Vuescan software from :   https://www.hamrick.com/[/size]
2 - install the .deb file you just downloaded
3 - run it, and after 2 minutes it will find your scanner unit
4 - you will be able to use any other other scanner software (simplescan, Xsane, ....)
5 - you don't need anymore to run Vuescan


Hope it may help !
Have a nice day.

Which make/model of scanner did you get this driver to work on?

Linux user since 2014. Below: 64bit OS installed in Legacy mode on MBR (msdos/ext4) formatted SSDs, except the pi which uses a micro SDHC card:
2017 - Raspberry pi 3B (4cores) ~ Arm710@1.2GHz - LibreElec, used for upgrading our Samsung TV (excellent for the task)  
2012 - Lenovo G580 2689 (2cores; 4threads] ~ i3-3110M - LL3.8/Win8.1 dual-boot (LL working smoothly)
2011 - Samsung NP-N145 Plus (1core; 2threads) ~ Intel Atom N455@1.66GHz - Manjaro (tried LL3 series but lagged)
2008 - Asus X71Q (2cores) ~ Intel T3200@2.0GHz - LL4.4/Win8.1 dual-boot (LL working beautifully)
2007 - Dell Latitude D630 (2cores) ~ Intel T7100@1.8GHz - LL3.8/Win8.1 dual-boot (LL really zippy!) - my daily driver  :-)

Vusscan is able to automatically detect any brand and model.

In my case, it detect my very old Agfa Snapscan1212 connected via USB, it also detects scanner unit of my HP Photosmart C6180.
