    Kodak ESP 3250 aio printer, cannot see scanner

    Quite new to Ubuntu, and not having drivers to install worries me...

    So I was surprised when Ubuntu found my printer after I plugged it in, but, it does not find the scanner part.

    A search for this shows me that there is no solution, Kodak do not support Linux it seems, so I'm guessing the answer is to get rid of the kodak and try something else... which I am tempted to do, I don't like the kodak anyway

    so, is it possible to install the scanner on a kodak printer, or...
    which other scanner printer manufacturer model does work on ubuntu?

    In Linux the printer driver and scanner driver are usually entirely separate.
    You can get instructions for installing a scanner driver here
    http://sourceforge.net/projects/cups...ane%20backend/
    Follow the instructions at the bottom of that page.
    Please note that it's not easy to install, expect to have to do a little experimenting.

    Or you can look here to find lists of scanners that are supported by sane, if you want to try another scanner, here

    Thankyou Paul, I think the second options is better, I want rid of this kodak anyway.
