I am fairly new to Mint, and have run into a problem.
I have just upgraded my old Dell laptop to the newest Mint 19.3 Cinnamon
Via the Software Center in Mint, I have installed an App called Paperwork. And app to scan and organized documents into searchable PDFs.
I have an old Cannon MG2400-sries printer/scanner.
I can print documents, and SimpleScan also work.
But Paperwork do not find my printer/scanner?
When trying to scan, a popup comes, saying;
No scanner found.
You use Paperwork from Flatpak container. Paperwork needs Saned to access your scanners. To enable Saned on the host system, you can use the following commands;
Code: Select all
sudo apt install sane-utils sudo sh -c "echo 127.0.0.1 >> /etc/sane.d/saned.conf" sudo systemctl enable saned.socket sudo systemctl start saned.socket
I have tried to put the commands into the Terminal, but it do not help.
I hope somebody have an easy solution to this problem.
Thank you for your time.
Best regards and merry christmas
