View Full Version : [ubuntu] Network scanning possible?

December 10th, 2010, 08:03 PM
I am using wireless router WL-520GU, it have a USB port connected to a printer + scanner: "HP Photosmart C4400"

I can print to this printer by pointing CUPS to use network printer at socket://, can I also get the scanning image from the scanner?

I've installed xsane and sane. And tried to run "xsane hpaio:/net/photosmart_c4400_series?ip=" according to this page: https://answers.launchpad.net/hplip/+question/28585

As I mentioned in there, the error I get is actually

Dec 11 02:58:07 (none) xsane: scan/sane/io.c 53: dBus Connection Error (Failed to connect to socket /var/run/dbus/system_bus_socket: No such file or directory)!
Dec 11 02:58:10 (none) xsane: io/hpmud/jd.c 88: unable to read device-id

How can I generate /var/run/dbus/system_bus_socket ??
