Hi,
I have a problem with multifunction printer-scanner ricoh sp 211 su. I installed the driver r78188en.exe that is a Linux SANE Scanner Driver and contains sp-200series_Scanner-1.01-noarch. The printer is detected and it works after that I installed it by adding a printer with a generic driver. The scanner does not work and both xsane and simple-scan do not detect it. The device is detected as stated by lusb and sane-find-scanner:
Code:
lsusb
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 058f:a001 Alcor Micro Corp.
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

sudo sane-find-scanner

# sane-find-scanner will now attempt to detect your scanner. If the

# No SCSI scanners found. If you expected something different, make sure that

# Your USB scanner was (probably) detected. It may or may not be supported by

# Not checking for parallel port scanners.
# Most Scanners connected to the parallel port or other proprietary ports

while it is not detected by
Code:
scanimage -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).
I already installed sudo apt install libsane-extras and manually changed the file /lib/udev/rules.d/60-libsane1.rules by adding the following lines:
Code:
# Ricoh SP 211
ATTRS{idVendor}=="05ca", ATTRS{idProduct}=="044f", MODE="664", GROUP="scanner", ENV{libsane_matched}="yes"
and the file /etc/sane.d/ricoh.conf by adding:
Code:
usb 0x05ca 0x044f
The scanner still does not work. Do you have any idea?
Thank you in advance.

The file extension .exe is a Microsoft Windows file.

To get the Linux file you need to click on Firmware/Other OS.

Yes, but how did you install the .deb?
