Firewall blocking the scanner ?
temporarily disable it...
sudo ufw disable
the try scanning
Also try "simple Scan"....it is already installed in LM
BE SURE TO RE ENABLE THE FIREWALL
Then see if Simple scan finds the scanner. If so you can add a firewall rule to allow the scanner.
Re enable the firewall by:
sudo ufw enable
If the firewall is the problem, and you need to add a rule...:
Find the ip address of your printer. Look at your router setup for DHCP or connected client list.
It should be a number something like 192.168.2.4
Then open a terminal:
You may also add:
Code: Select all
sudo ufw allow from yourprintersIP

It has been said that time heals all wounds. I don't agree. The wounds remain. Time - the mind, protecting its sanity - covers them with some scar tissue and the pain lessens, but it is never gone. Rose Kennedy
