Hi harkon,

as you already found out, it has nothing to do with my tool. Looks like the sane driver for your specific scanner is not that good. The Windows drivers are mostly from the vendor and most of them are not delivering drivers for Linux. Before buying any devices, first check the Linux compatibility!

I'm just calling scanimage (the SANE comandline scan tool). I suggest to test using this tool directly. If you're on Ubuntu, you also may try to ask your question in the Ubuntu forums (they are quite good).

I've had similar issues with my fujitsu fi-4120C and solved it by installing more recent sane packages. The idea and help was also from the Ubuntu forum. So, maybe you give it a try?

Best,

Kukulkan

Thanks again. You are correct, the internet has many posts on the ScanJet3500C and sane. It's still a great too and points me in the right direction.

This scanner was free to me, so I can't complain. I do mostly run Windows in a VB VM along side my Mint host machine so it's not a problem, or at least not a new problem. Thanks again for posting this. I will be using it once I get a better scanner.
