Title: If your scanner is not detected
Post by: Paul74 on November 01, 2017, 04:22:17 AM
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.

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.
