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?

64bit OS (32-bit on Samsung netbook) installed in Legacy mode on MBR-formatted SSDs (except pi which uses a micro SDHC card):
2017 - Raspberry pi 3B (4cores) ~ [email protected] - LibreElec, used for upgrading our Samsung TV (excellent for the task)  
2012 - Lenovo G580 2689 (2cores; 4threads] ~ [email protected] - LL3.8/Win8.1 dual-boot (LL working smoothly)
2011 - Samsung NP-N145 Plus (1core; 2threads) ~ Intel Atom [email protected] - LL 3.8 32-bit (64-bit too 'laggy')
2008 - Asus X71Q (2cores) ~ Intel [email protected] - LL4.6/Win8.1 dual-boot, LL works fine with kernel 4.15
2007 - Dell Latitude D630 (2cores) ~ Intel [email protected] - LL4.6, works well with kernel 4.4; 4.15 doesn't work

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.

I know this topic hasn't been active since 2017, but I just wanted to add that I had had scanner problems for years!  I have been using Linux Lite since 2.8, but now on 5.8 and for both my old HP All-in-One printer and now my Epson ET-2720, the scanner function has been hit and miss.  I have followed god knows how many HowTos and so on.  Tonight nothing worked, til I googled "Linux Lite scanner not found" and this post came up as the first return.

Followed the instructions in this post and it worked like a dream! No guessing which of the six names for the same scanner to use, blah, blah...

I have just spent a very worth while thirty Euros and will happily ignore step 5 of the above insructions :D
