    Re: Print sharing windows and Linux box

    Check it with the USB. Making it work through the parallel cable would probably require us to dig into the SANE settings and specifically tell it to check the parallel port for a scanner. Which we...

    If the scanner is going to work via network share you'll almost certainly need to install the drivers you found. And even then it probably won't work unless Samsung is using some magic to make it...

    You are most likely correct. Check your library versions. It wouldn't be the first time some version of Ubuntu shipped with a broken, beta version of something and was never updated.
