I have a problem with the Samsung Configurator as it sees my TV tuner card and not the scanner in my multifunction device - Samsung 4521F.

I followed the instructions given below but I still can't get the scanning part of the device to work. In fact when I tried to follow step 3, it broke my webcam.

Is there any hope of getting my Samsung 4521F to scan?

BTW I'm using Gutsy and didn't notice until now that these steps were for Fiesty.

Here's how I did it:

1) Follow link to Samsung driver pagehttp://www.samsung.com/us/support/do...111&prd_ia_cd=

Notice that at the bottom of the driver download page is Ubuntu instructions. Follow those instrutions. Funny how Samsung seems to be supporting Ubuntu now, even though you still need to jump thru hoops to get the scanner to work. Printing is basically plug and play with the USB setup. Scanning is the problem

To set up scanning:

2) Follow http://www.elijahlofgren.com/ubuntu/#scx-4521f. Only follow steps 13-17 to get the Scanner to work.

3) Download hacked libmfp.so.1.0.1 driver for for versions 2.00.95 and 2.00.97 at this site:

NB- This hack disables your lpt1 port which conlicts with the USB detection of the scanner. Hopefully you won't need the parallel port for anything since it will no longer work.

You do not need to bother with adding yourself as a user to the lp group since you took care of that in step 2.
Reboot the system and scanning should work
