Install driver for Xerox 3025 scanner not working


#1

The below driver works on Ubuntu mate 18.04.1 only for printing.
The scanner application does not see the scanner.
On Ubuntu 14.04.5 (32 bit) the same driver worked just fine.
I tested the driver on Ubuntu mate 18.04.1 on 32 and 64 bit with firewall on AND off, but NO luck.

I installed the driver by unpaking it and right clicking on install.sh and run as administrator.
When the question about the firewall got printed in terminal, I tried with autoconfigure and with skip. I couldn't make the scanner work.

Than you.

PS. Pity that I discovered Ubuntu mate just now :slight_smile:

Hello marius-ciclistu

The information in this post may help you:

You may consider the license to be a worthwhile investment (have a look at the details, you get quite a lot for your money).
Good luck. :slightly_smiling_face:

Thanks, but I have Xerox not kodak.
If there isn’t a solution for my problem, i’ll dual boot in ubuntu 14 or windows to scan, and that’s it.

Hello marius-ciclistu

If you had used the link to the “hamrick” website and looked around about a bit you would have found this:

Is that your machine?
Good luck. :slightly_smiling_face:

Thank you.
I was discouraged by the “trial” word as I already payd the workcentre that cammed with the drivers (only that the guis from XEROX had no clue how to install the linux driver and I had to dig online to find out.

Solved the issue with this solution: https://askubuntu.com/a/1062147/484859

I used pluma instead of vi when editing that file.

I did not ran sudo adduser $USER lp
