SANE Scanner Source Error

Post by evenxzero »

Hi, I have setup a direct installation of Latest Mayan EDMS and have everything working fine. However I have added a Brother Scanner (ADS-2800w) as a SANE Scanner and it gives out the following error.

Code: Select all

Error while scanning; b"terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::logic_error'\n what(): basic_string::_S_construct null not valid\n"
But I have managed to scan using the following command over terminal below which is for batch and single scan:

Code: Select all

scanimage -b -v --format=jpeg --resolution 300 --mode 24bit -p -d 'brother5:net1;dev0'

Code: Select all

scanimage -v --format=jpeg --resolution 300 --mode 24bit -p -d 'brother5:net1;dev0' > ~test3.jpeg
Any help would greatly be appreciated.

Hi Evenxzero.

Please bear with us during the current global situation. The team all have families and local communities to look after as well as the community here. Responses may be delayed during this time, but rest assured we will get to your query eventually.
