    Question [SOLVED] Hardy - libsane.rules OK - not!

    Dear kind experts...

    I am trying to reinstall my Epson V200 scanner in Hardy (it was OK in Gutsy...).
    I am blindly following (again) the instructions I found for Dapper, which worked fine in Gutsy:http://ubuntuguide.org/wiki/Dapper#I..._Photo_example

    When I get to the bit about checking in 45-libsane.rules for my scanner, I find 45-libsane.rules no longer exists.
    Nor anything obviously like it in etc/udev/rules.d

    A lot of Googling did not produce anything I could use.

    Can some kind expert please tell me how to proceed from there?

    Thanks!

    Re: Hardy - libsane.rules OK - not!

    could you try installing the following, execute the commands in Applications > Accessories > Terminal:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install libsane sane sane-utils libsane-extras xsane
    reboot the machine and try again.

    If it doesn't work, try reinstalling:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install --reinstall libsane sane sane-utils libsane-extras xsane
    reboot and then try once more

    Re: Hardy - libsane.rules OK - not!

    Thanks for your rapid response!

    Trying GUI methods, I looked in Synaptic & found I already had:
    libsane
    xsane
    sane-utils

    I added by Synaptic
    sane
    libsane-extras

    After reboot, I now have a file 025_libsane-extras.rules but still no libsane.rules

    (Note that several sources have said I need to REMOVE libsane-extras before installing my deb packages for this scanner...)

    I then ran your command for re-installing, using Terminal & copy/pasting
    sudo apt-get install --reinstall libsane sane sane-utils libsane-extras xsane
    After reboot - no change...

    I tried searching file system for "libsane.rules" but found nothing.

    Re: Hardy - libsane.rules OK - not!

    I think you have to add yourself to the group scanner and add the driver for it.

    Let's see, do this command:
    Code:
    cat /etc/group | grep scanner
    1)
    - If you see your username continue go to (2)
    - If you don't see your username in that line, try this:
    Code:
    sudo adduser $USER scanner
    log out and log in again
    - Once you're done go to (2)

    2) Go root:
    Code:
    sudo -s
    Add the printer driver for epson v200:
    Code:
    echo 'epkowa' >> /etc/sane.d/dll.conf
    Exit root:
    Code:
    exit
    Then do:
    Code:
    sudo /etc/init.d/udev restart
    log out and log in again

    Code:
    lsusb
    sane-find-scanner
    scanimage -L
    Now try scan something, reply with the output of the commands if it doesn't work

    Thanks, Forger, for that reply, and sorry for the delay in responding.

    I used GUI to add myself to scanners group & logged out/in.
    I hope that corresponds to your item 1.

    I then went exactly (copy/paste) through your remaining instructions & after another log out/in, ran
    lsusb
    sane-find-scanner
    scanimage -L
    After that, I went to XSane Image Scanner, but only got "no devices available".

    Here is the output from the last commands:
    chris@DESKTOP:~$ lsusb
    Bus 004 Device 005: ID 04b8:012e Seiko Epson Corp.

    Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
    chris@DESKTOP:~$ sane-find-scanner

    # sane-find-scanner will now attempt to detect your scanner. If the
    # result is different from what you expected, first make sure your
    # scanner is powered up and properly connected to your computer.

    # No SCSI scanners found. If you expected something different, make sure that
    # you have loaded a kernel SCSI driver for your SCSI adapter.

    found USB scanner (vendor=0x04b8 [EPSON], product=0x012e [EPSON Scanner]) at libusb:004:005
    # Your USB scanner was (probably) detected. It may or may not be supported by
    # SANE. Try scanimage -L and read the backend's manpage.

    # Not checking for parallel port scanners.

    # Most Scanners connected to the parallel port or other proprietary ports
    # can't be detected by this program.

    # You may want to run this program as root to find all devices. Once you
    # found the scanner devices, be sure to adjust access permissions as
    # necessary.
    chris@DESKTOP:~$ scanimage -L

    No scanners were identified. If you were expecting something different,
    check that the scanner is plugged in, turned on and detected by the
    sane-find-scanner tool (if appropriate). Please read the documentation
    which came with this software (README, FAQ, manpages).
    chris@DESKTOP:~$
    The lsusb & sane-find-scanner commands found the scanner OK
    Bus 004 Device 005: ID 04b8:012e Seiko Epson Corp.
    But after that...

    So far, I have not installed the drivers I downloaded from Epson Japan (should I ??) & I still don't have a libsane.rules file (should I ??).

    Pretty obviously, I don't at all understand what I am doing here - just following instructions.

    Thanks for any further instructions!

    I gave up on that & followed guidelines from robc02 which worked just fine.
