Epson 3490 scanner not detecting

Bug #311191 reported by ibizatunes on 2008-12-24
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
sane-backends (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: libsane

Epson 3490 wont run without the following modification
The following steps did it for me (running 8.04 Hardy, 8.10, 9.04):-

1) sudo apt-get install sane-utils

2) Go to the Users and Groups screen and add yourself (and other
scanner users) to the "scanner" group.

3) Log off and on (or reboot) to make 2) effective.

4) sudo mkdir /usr/share/sane/snapscan

5) sudo cp Esfw52.bin /usr/share/sane/snapscan

6) sudo chmod 644 /usr/share/sane/snapscan/Esfw52.bin

7) sudo gedit /etc/sane.d/snapscan.conf

Change firmware entry to say:-
firmware /usr/share/sane/snapscan/Esfw52.bin

Please note point 6 as the file was initially created with insufficient access.

Firmware .bin is attacted - is the scanner being discussed

As per 9.04 is EOL.

If you have an issue in a supported release (ex. 16.04) please file a new report, and feel free to subscribe me to it.
