Hi,

I'm trying to install Panasonic KX-MB1500 Series All-In-One Printer and Scanner in Peppermint 6. This Model Drivers is not available in Peppermint 6 So I had searched on google and found driver from given links-

http://panasonic.net/pcc/support/fax/common/table/linuxdriver.html

http://www.sane-project.org/cgi-bin/driver.pl?manu=Panasonic&model=KX-MB1500&bus=any&v=&p=

Printer Driver
mccgdi-2.0.8-i686.tar.gz

Scanner Driver
panamfs-scan-1.2.2-i686.tar.gz

I had able to install Printer Driver and printer start working. But When I try to install panamfs-scan-1.2.2 . It gives me error as below:-

Code: [Select]
administrator@MOC034 ~/panamfs-scan-1.2.2-i686 $ sudo ./install-driver
[sudo] password for administrator:
  Cannot find SANE lib path

Scan is not detected  and it is not working. :-\
 
I try to run some Diagnostic Test which is as below to give you some understanding to my issue.

Code: [Select]
administrator@MOC034 ~ $ sudo scanimage -v -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).

Code: [Select]
administrator@MOC034 ~ $ 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.

  # No USB scanners found. If you expected something different, make sure that
  # you have loaded a kernel driver for your USB host controller and have setup
  # the USB system correctly. See man sane-usb for details.

  # Not checking for parallel port scanners.

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

What's the output from:
Code: [Select]
ls /usr/lib/sane?

Okay it looks like that directory may have been added to my system by hplip .. that said I'm beginning to think it should be at
/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/
instead.

do you get any output from:
Code: [Select]
ls /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/I don't need to know the output, just whether there was any or not.

I suppose I we could create the directory at /usr/lib/sane .. then run the installation script .. then copy everything from that directory to /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/ and see if that'd work.

I did as you suggested that I had create one directory at /user/lib/sane and run the installation script and it's work and it had installed files into the folder and then copy everything from that directory to /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/sane  and tested or copy everything copy to /usr/lib/i386-gne/ and tested. But it is not working. :-\

I take it you've now tried xsane ?

did xsane start up properly, or report it couldn't find a scanner ?

if xsane starts up properly, what happens when you try to scan something ?

what's happens if you run
Code: [Select]
cd ~/Desktopthen
Code: [Select]
scanimage -d panamfs --quick-format Letter --resolution=400 > test.pnmdid it error, or is there now a file on your desktop called test.pnm ?

Hi,

When we run xsane it shows No device found.

Code: [Select]
administrator@MOC034 ~/Desktop $ scanimage d panamfs --quick-format Letter --resolution=400 > test.pnm
scanimage: no SANE devices found
administrator@MOC034 ~/Desktop $

I think driver install but it is not working somehow.  :-\

you forgot the "-" before the "d" in
Code: [Select]
scanimage -d panamfs --quick-format Letter --resolution=400 > test.pnmmay be best to copy/paste commands into the terminal ;)
