    Post Install Samsung SCX-3400 Mutlifunction Printer / Scanner under 11.10

    Just in case it helps anybody (I could not find any info for this specific model) I have documented the installation procedures for the Samsung SCX-3400 Mutlifunction Printer / Scanner under 11.10

    http://www.gaggl.com/2012/04/install...-ubuntu-11-10/

    Both scanner (xsane) and laser printer work nicely.

    Thanks, and what about using the same series over WiFi (like SCX-3405W)?

    I set up the WiFi printer through IPP (although it tends do disconnect when going into sleep mode), but scanning still does not work

    SCX-3405W with 12.04 generated at crash error report with colord being the culprit ... wifi not tested yet.

    Solved by changing:

    ATTRS{idVendor}=="04e8"
    to
    ATTRS{idVendor}=="04e8", ATTRS{idProduct}="344f", ENV{libsane_matched}="yes", MODE="0666"

    in '/etc/udev/rules.d/99_smfpautoconf_samsung.rules'

    I did something else, quick and easy.

    I opened the terminal and typed: sane-find-scanner
    Then I got the scanner type and the usb line like this:
    found USB scanner (vendor=0x067b, product=0x2303) at libusb:003:002
    found USB scanner (vendor=0x04e8, product=0x344f [SCX-3400 Series]) at libusb:002:006

    After that I typed scanimage -L in the terminal, and the scanner was reported as not detected.

    Then I went to /etc/sane.d/xerox_mfp.conf and to /etc/sane.d/xerox_mfp-smfp.conf and I added the following to both files, using the information I got from sane-find-scanner:
    # Samsung SCX-3400
    usb 0x04e8 0x344f


    Right after and without rebooting, my Mint 13 was able to detect the Scanner of Samsung SCX3400 device.

    Hope that helps somebody. It's a really pain this issue.
