Scansnap firmware

The following is a quick and dirty way to get my Scansnap S1300 working on Ubuntu, Xubuntu, or Elementary OS. (This could possibly work on other Debian based linux too.)

Installation on Debian

  1. Download firmware:

     git clone https://github.com/ckunte/scansnap-firmware.git
    
  2. Run the following commands in a Terminal

     sudo mkdir -p /usr/share/sane/epjitsu
     sudo cp ~/Downloads/scansnap-firmware/* /usr/share/sane/epjitsu/.
     sudo cpan upgrade sane
     sudo apt-get install libsane-dev
    
  3. Logout, and then re-login. Try Simple Scan, and the scanner should work.

Installation on Arch Linux

  1. Prepare System
sudo su
#install needed software
pacman -S sane
#optional
#pacman -S xsane
#pacman -S simple-scan

#add usb device to know sane configuration
echo “usb 0x04c5 0x1155” >> /etc/sane.d/fujitsu.conf
exit
  1. Download firmware
sudo su
cd /usr/share/sane/epjitsu/
wget https://github.com/ckunte/scansnap-firmware/raw/master/1300i_0D12.nal
exit
  1. Use it

Try Simple Scan, and the scanner should work. Read '/etc/sane.d/epjitsu.conf', if needed.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
