Debian scanner driver verite 55 all in one printer-scanner

Postby manny6 » 2018-04-11 22:35

I'm using Debian Testing with xfce.

Kodak has a scanner driver as a deb file, which i installed using `dpkg -i kodak-verite-network-scan`. I cannot figure out how to use it.

When i installed the printer driver for the printer i used cups.

Cups gave me an error message that t KODAK-VERITEpdftocontone was missing from /usr/lib/cups/filter/

So i cp the deb file to a different directory.
open it with `ar x` and `cp KODAK-VERITEpdftocontone /usr/lib/cups/filter/` and the printer works fine.

Looks like the kodak driver puts things in the wrong place. Maybe it uses Ubuntu as it guide for deb files?

I cannot figure out how to fix the scanner driver. I don't have anything telling me something is missing. I have tried the following:


if i use the find i get:

Code: Select all
root@m:/#find / -iname "kodak-verite-network*"
    find: ‘/proc/2466/task/2466/net’: Invalid argument
    find: ‘/proc/2466/net’: Invalid argument
    /usr/share/doc/kodak-verite-network-scan
    /var/lib/dpkg/info/kodak-verite-network-scan.prerm
    /var/lib/dpkg/info/kodak-verite-network-scan.postinst
    /var/lib/dpkg/info/kodak-verite-network-scan.preinst
    /var/lib/dpkg/info/kodak-verite-network-scan.md5sums
    /var/lib/dpkg/info/kodak-verite-network-scan.list
    /home/m/Downloads/temp1/tmp/usr/share/doc/kodak-verite-network-scan
    find: ‘/run/user/1000/gvfs’: Permission denied

/var/kodakscan

If i cat it I get: `kodakscan: No such file or directory`

I tried running it:

Code: Select all
root@m:/usr# ./kodakscan
    -su: ./kodakscan: No such file or directory




I decided to look inside the deb file using `ar x kodak-verite-network-scan` To see if i could figure out how to run the file. I also tried SANE as well as VueScan. Both did not recognize the scanner.


When i did a ls -l:

Code: Select all
root@m:/usr# ls -l
    total 224
    drwxr-xr-x   2 root root  122880 Apr 11 02:46 bin
    drwxr-xr-x   2 root root    4096 Apr  2 17:49 games
    drwxr-xr-x  55 root root   20480 Apr  6 20:40 include
    lrwxrwxrwx   1 root root      19 Apr 11 14:53 kodakscan -> ./unix_scan_drivers
    drwxr-xr-x 164 root root   20480 Apr  8 00:30 lib
    drwxr-xr-x   3 root root    4096 Apr 11 01:18 lib64
    drwxrwsr-x  11 root staff   4096 Apr  7 01:40 local
    drwxr-xr-x   2 root root   20480 Apr  7 15:00 sbin
    drwxr-xr-x 483 root root   20480 Apr 11 02:46 share
    drwxr-xr-x   3 root root    4096 Nov 14 19:29 src
    drwxr-xr-x   3 root root    4096 Nov 14 19:29 var

I don't know what the "->" means, looks like a pointer to me.

I did a ls -a to see if there was a hidden .file, but i only got

Code: Select all
root@m:/usr# ls -a
    .  ..  bin  games  include  kodakscan  lib  lib64  local  sbin  share  src  var


I used the `
Code: Select all
ar x
` to look inside the deb file. The file use `#!/bin/sh` I still cannot figure it out. The postinst starts off with many pages of `chmod '755'` and `chown ':bin' '/usr/local/KODAK-VERITE/<stuff>'`



I think the Kodak script installed a file in the wrong place, like it did with the printer file. If anyone knows how to get the software to work , it would help me. Otherwise i have to buy a different scanner.

=========================================================================

After some more searching i found this file.

Code: Select all
 root@m:/usr/local/KODAK-VERITE# ls
    network-scan.link  network-scan.unlink  ppd  printer_utility  unix_scan_drivers
    root@m:/usr/local/KODAK-VERITE# cd unix_scan_drivers/
    root@m:/usr/local/KODAK-VERITE/unix_scan_drivers# ls
    bin  docs  etc  jre  lib  scanner  share



Code: Select all
root@m:/usr/local/KODAK-VERITE/unix_scan_drivers# ls ./bin/
    applistDummy.xml       display.sh  scanPerformScanImage.sh  strings_es.sh
    demon                  kodakscan   scanSave.sh              strings_fr.sh
    demond_nscan           lshome      scanSaveToDOC.sh         usbreset
    dialogConfirmation.sh  lsinet      scanSaveToPDF.sh         usbreset.sh
    dialogNotification.sh  pxmstretch  scanSaveToPHOTO.sh
    dialogSaveFile.sh      sbrowser    strings_en.sh


I tried runing one of these scripts

Code: Select all
 root@m:/usr/local/KODAK-VERITE/unix_scan_drivers/bin# ./kodakscan
   
    USAGE:
        kodakscan --ip-address=<scanner_ip> --filename=<filename> [--debug]
        kodakscan [--help]
        kodakscan [--version]

I'll try to get something to scan from the command line later. I am tired now. Must be a better way, I have to log in as root, and go to the file. These files are not in the search path, if i type there names, it is not found. I would prefer to do stuff from a gui, not command line when scanning.

It is a "link" For more details
Code: Select all
man ln


As far as the scanner, it needs additional debian package to function, you did not mention if sane
https://packages.debian.org/stretch/sane and a front end were installed. There is also a warning in your post about the gvfs group not being found. This group is usually generated with gvfs is installed.

I just looked at synaptic. I had sane-utils installed, but not sane. I just installed sane.
Not sure how to launch the front end, Nothing is showing up in application finder, or is i type sane in the terminal.

I did:
Code: Select all
m@m:~$ sudo 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=0x0bda [Generic], product=0x0129 [USB2.0-CRW]) at libusb:001:007
found USB scanner (vendor=0x0f1c [FUNAI], product=0x0115 [KODAK VERITE 50 Series]) at libusb:001:006
could not fetch string descriptor: Pipe error
could not fetch string descriptor: Pipe error
found USB scanner (vendor=0x04e8, product=0x6860) at libusb:001:005
  # 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.


This time is did find the scanner
Code: Select all
found USB scanner (vendor=0x0f1c [FUNAI], product=0x0115 [KODAK VERITE 50 Series]) at libusb:001:006


so i did:

Code: Select all
root@m:~# 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).


I also downloaded simple-scan. I cannot find the scanner.

Not sure what to do next.

The other aspect is usb permissions and whether your user has access to the scanner. The wiki has more details and what you need to do from here
